Is there an OTC substitute for this? I cannot afford this. ## There are over the counter Potassium supplements that you can purchase. However, if yours is low and your doctor wants to bring it up fast, they are not going to work like this will. Have you tried pricing it at different pharmacies? There are generics available. The reason I ask is because I have a bottle here and the first pharmacy I called for a price wanted over $40 for 30 tablets of the generic, however, I called another and was able to get their generic, in this same dosage, for only $12. Low potassium can cause severe health problems, so it is not something you can let go and hope it resolves itself. Did you doctor say why they want you on it? ## My friend's docter prescribes Potassium CL ER 20 MEG Tablets for leg ... ...

I was taken one 10 MEQ of potassium once a day. now they tell me i need to take 50 mg a day but i called the pharmacy and they said that i need to take two of 10 MEQ capsules a day. So thats 20 meq. But is that to much potassium in a day. Because potassium comes in MEQ not mg. So should i take 2 tabs a day or go back to just 1 tab a day. They said that the 10 meq is equal to 750 mg so thats 1500 mg a day. Is that going to be to much potassium. ## i am taken 1 10 meq of citrate potassium 4 times a day, 1 chiorthalidone 25 mg, & 2 , 20 meg potassium cl er micro, i have my blood checked each month my potassium alway low & lately i am very itchy on my arms, am i having a interactin with the two potassium medication ? ## My client was told by her Dr. to take potassium 50 mg 2 x a day... ...

I have been given a prescription by my physician for "Pot Chl Powder 20mEq" a month ago and I have been diluting a packet of it in 4 ounces (or more) of water and taking it two times daily. I seem to feel somewhat better; however, I have developed a problem since starting. I should also mention that I am also taking a blood pressure pill called "BenicarHCT'. In this period I have started having serious sight problems. Could this be the problem? ## Hello, Marian! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you've been having. It is most likely from the Benicar HCT, since the potassium is just a supplement. These blood pressure medications can sometimes cause that in some people who take them and you may need to switch to a different one. What types of visi... ...

What are the side effects of Potassium Cl 20meq er? ## My grandmother has been prescribed this medication (Potassium CL) and has discovered them completely whole in her bowel movements, why is this? ## Kimberly, when some medications are time released, the outer shell of the tablet is NOT meant to be digested and is just expelled as waste, however, the medication is still released and used by the body, just as it is supposed to be. Many of these types of medications will even carry warnings about this in the drug monographs. Side effects can include: high potassium levels, nausea, diarrhea and muscle weakness. Did you have any other questions? ## Mom has always taken K CR and now it is ER. What is the difference. I thought CR meant time release. ## Kimberly, I really doubt that answer. ... ...

I was taking potassium cl er 20meq & im out of them so im trying to find something equivalent to that over the many 99 milligrams of potassium can I take to make 1 20 meq? ## Hello, Melissa! How are you? There is no direct conversion that I can give you. Has your doctor instructed you continue with the Potassium?

MY NIECE HAS TO TAKE 540 OF THESE A MONTH AND thats if her pot, doesnt drop and im trying to find a place to help her with this med ,She has noinsurance,Who is the maker of these pills? ## The tablet you mentioned is a Potassium supplement and is not a name brand, it's a generic, so without more specifics, I can't tell you who manufactured them. There are several companies that make them and, since these are a generic, there aren't usually assistance programs for these. Assistance programs are usually only for name brand medications, which can be very expensive and are provide to help people that don't have any coverage. I can, however, look into it more specifically, if you can post back with more details. Can you ask her who the manufacturer is or what the markings are... ...

4 potassium chloride 20 meq er taken with metformin 2000 mg 25 hydrochlorothiazide 120 diltiazem cd
1 Reply RSS
Drug interaction Want to no if I can take these 4 potassium pills for 2 days with my other daily medications ## Hello, Mare! How are you? As long as your doctor has approved it, then yes, they can be taken together. The FDA classifies potassium as a supplement and it can cause stomach pain and nausea, so it should be taken with food. The more pressing question, I think, is if your potassium is low, why do they still have you on the Hydrochlorothiazide? It is a diuretic and well known to cause potassium loss. Stopping it and switching to a different one might easily solve the problem. You may want to ask your doctor about it. Typical side effects to it may also possibly include nausea, headache, dehydration and increased urination. ...
