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... ...

My wife was prescribed potassium years ago. Does not remember mg or meq.We assume it was 10or 20 meq.She is now taking Oct potassium 99mg.How many 99mg would she take to get 10meq? She is diabetic and keeps it under control. ## Hello, Nick! How are you? There is no actual conversion for this, these 99mg over the counter potassium supplements aren't even close to the amount available in the prescription tablets. Additionally, it is not safe to take that much, unless her doctors has said she is dangerously low in it and needs to supplement it. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
