Hello, Melissa! How are you?

There is no direct conversion that I can give you.

Has your doctor instructed you continue with the Potassium? Because too much of it can also be dangerous, so you shouldn't continue, unless they instruct you to do so.

It's less. Equivalent to about 1500 mgs of potassium but in a different form.

I need an over the counter conversion for Potassium Chloride ER M-20 MEQ TAB.I need to take two a day and my script didn’t get changed before the weekend. I’m out right now and Trillium won’t cover it as they say it’s too early. Is it cheaper to buy an over the counter product, or is there even one?
