No one knows yet. But I have not seen reports in JAMA etc yet suggesting there is a problem. If you have HBP and/or low blood K I can report that my online group of 100 folks with HTN and and maybe 20 with arrhythmias have not reported any problems. Many with low K issues. No problems. But not good science. Time will tell.
