IT'S BLUE IT SAY'S KLOR-CON 8 MEQ ## my body is not absorbing them. What else for replentishing potassium? Have already been hospitalized, for 1.9 pot. ## dried apricots, and sweet potatoes ## To add some more information, because I am sure there are others with similar issues….

This is the huge white oblong shaped tablet with KC M20 imprinted on the front. I would like to know how many MG of potassium chloride is in each tablet, please. ## how many mg of potassium cl in one klor-con M20 tab ## For anyone else seeking such information, these aren't measured in milligrams, but in milliequivalents and the measurement for these ones is 20.

Are there any other questions or comments? ## I found two of these pills on my dresser they are old dont remember why It was prescribed

w-1714 ## The pill in description is Potassium Chloride SR (20 MEQ). Potassium chloride has many uses such as being a sodium-free substitute for table salt (sodium chloride). Research I have gathered states that this pill works by providing a direct replacement of potassium in the body. Potassium chloride is in the class of drugs called potassium supplements that are used to prevent hypokalaemia. NOTE: Orally, KCl is toxic in excess.
