A 78-year-old male asked:
Is there any contraindication to taking chlorthalidone and multaq?

Caution!: Chlorthalidone almost ALWAYS causes a low potassium which will un-do the beneficial effects of MulTaq. They're not contraindicated but you MUST have your potassium monitored and supplemented as needed to stay above 4.0!
