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. I had to pick up a bottle of 20meqs and it was only around $40. Have you tried different pharmacies? As to the conversion, I am not sure it would be any cheaper, since you would need 390mgs, to equal the 10meq dose. ...

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. The FDA deemed that (over the counter) supplements can only have up to 99 mg of elemental Potassium per pill and 100 mg or higher requires a prescription…so a prescription could be several times more potent, saving you from taking several pills a day of a supplement. 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... ...

Can pot cl micro pills be cut in half? Having a hard time swallowing them. ## No, these tablets cannot be cut, crushed or broken. Potassium is very, very harsh on the stomach, actually the entire GI tract, so they are specially coated and made to be time released, so it doesn't all hit, at once. Cutting, crushing or breaking them could cause serious GI injuries, which may include gastritis and ulcers. Due to this, the FDA also recommends that they be taken with food and not on an empty stomach. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
