Potassium supplement: The best potassium (k) supplement depends on the BP meds you are taking. If you are taking only diuretics (d) to control your bp, you may have a low magnesium (m) and you may need both m and k supplements as d waste both m and k and your k will not improve until your m is normal. If you are not taking a d, speak to your physician (p) about your p about the patients who have hbp and low k.
