I was in ER due to low potassium from blood pressure drug chlorlithidone to find also i was over medicated on Synthroid (thyroxine) to how long till side eff gone?

I was in ER due to low potassium from blood pressure drug chlorlithidone to find also i was over medicated on Synthroid (thyroxine) to how long till side eff gone?

Resolve quickly: Hyperthyroidism can also lower blood potassium. Some people taking Chlorthalidone need extra potassium, others don't. If your synthroid (thyroxine) dose is correctly adjusted, and if you take some extra potassium, you should be fine. If you stick with the chlorthalidone, you should use rx potassium (can't do it with bananas). May be best to use another BP medication. ...Read more
