Can someone tell me the difference. I have HBP and am on lasix, klor-con20 and coreg40.

Can't I just use otc potassium instead of the klor-con?

Hi ladidi4,

Please speak with your doctor about your medication before trying to substitute the Klor-con with otc potassium.

Here is an Overview on Klor-Con M20 for you to read before speaking with your physician about your concerns. I wish you the best and hope that you keep us posted on your doctor's thoughts and how you are doing! Take care.
Best Wishes! Amelia

My Cardiologist put me on Lasix (twice daily) and Klor Con M20 in late October 2010. I then had cardac bypass surgery a couple of weeks later. I had breathing problems and also extensive itching all over my body after surgery. No one helped me figure out what was causing my symptoms. Just recently I decided to stop taking Klor Con M20 just to see what would happen and my intense itching stopped. Now I need to find a satisfactory replacement for the Klor Con M20 because I am obviously very allergic to it.
