What is the difference between Klor-Con M10 and MEQ 8? I can't swallow the M10, and my husband takes 8MEQ which is easy to swallow.

Off the top of my head, the amount of active ingredient would be the main difference between the two. Just to confirm, are you comparing the following tablets?

1. White oblong tablet with the letters KC M10 imprinted on one side. (NDC 66758-170, among others). Brand: Klor-Con. Contains Potassium Chloride 750 mg, extended release.

Inactive ingredients:

- Croscarmellose Sodium
- Ethylcelluloses
- Cellulose, Microcrystalline

2. Blue capsule with the words UPSHER SMITH 0101 KCl 8MEQ. (NDC 66758-202, among others). Brand: Klor-Con Sprinkle. Contains Potassium Chloride 600 mg, extended release.

Inactive ingredients:

- Ethylcelluloses
- Talc
- Gelatin
- Titanium Dioxide
- FD&C Blue No. 1
- FD&C Red No. 3

Please let me know if I've listed the right medications. If not, could you please describe the color / shape / exact markings on the different pills?

Re: Bernie (# 3)

Hi bernie, apologies that I haven't been by here for a few days. Hmmm, I could not find any pills listed which have the inscription m8. This is after checking with the NIH pill identifier among others. The m8 is the only marking? I thought you wrote something different for your original message?

Re: Bernie (# 5)

No problem and sorry I didn't have something more definitive based on the m8 imprint. If you happen to find out what it is, can you please let me know too?
