Pot Cl Micro 10MEQ
I need to find a less expensive alternative for Pot CL Micro 10MEQ. What is the MG equivalent that can be purchased over the counter? ## That is a generic and really shouldn't be that expensive.

Pot Cl Micro Er Tab 10 Meq
I use this and am looking for a new supplier ## Finding a new supplier really depends on where you are located, and what's available in your region. It also depends on whether or not you are looking for a prescription pill vs pure powder form or other OTC variations.

NOTE: Orally, Potassium Chloride is toxic "in excess". In the U.S. Potassium Chloride (powdered form) is manufactured by several companies which you can view in the link below (near the top of the list): Other Potassium Chloride br... ...

How many should a 78 year old female take daily. ## Hi, Rick! This is a prescription potassium supplement, so she should only be taking it if her doctor has instructed her to do so and then only in the prescribed amount each day.

I had a high normal level, my Nephrology she did not tell this. It was on some of the medical papers that she gave me what does that mean. ## Hi Pauline, From what I understand, nephrology deals with kidney function and the treatment of various kidney problems.
