I am currently taking Potassium CL ER MEQ TABLWAT. my potassium level was 2.5. so my doc called me and told me to take 2 of these pills aday. My question is how much potassium is in each pill that I take. And what other vegtables would you recomomend for me to add to my doet. I have food alergies to tomatoes, green peppers, onions, garlic, green beans. and lettuce gives me a really bad stomach ach when i eat it. So how can you help me? Doc took more blood today to see where my levels are at. Im tirred of getting all puffy and swelly because of this imbalance. thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you!

Based on research I've gathered, the tablets you are referring to appear to come in doses of 8 meq, 10 meq, or 20 meq. The pills should be one of those doses, but you may be able to view the dosage on the prescription form. Alternatively, your doctor and/or pharmacist that you went to will be able to tell you which dosage you were prescribed if you bring your form or pills.

As far as your dietary needs go, I would highly recommend consuming lots of fruits, even more so than vegetables (when it comes to potassium and vitamin levels, and actually feeling satiated after eating). The link below shows some fruits that contain high amounts of potassium:

Fruits are equally, if not more important than vegetables, more over because you can actually thrive off fruit alone and not vegetables due to insufficient calories in veggies. Fruits also contain just as many nutrients and enzymes as most vegetables. I think a balance of 85% fruit and 15% veggies is a healthy addition to any diet. Fruit is personally 75% or more of my diet, so I'd be happy to help offer more information on eating like this if your interested. You're on the right track for sure, just by seeking other alternatives!
