I am taking a prescription potassium and would like to convert to over the counter.

8 meq of KCL (potassium chloride) contains 600 mg of elemental potassium. If you are taking one pill a day,  take  three 200 mg capsulses of an over-the-counter  supplement. More Information.

10 meq of KCL (potassium chloride) contains 750 mg of elemental potassium. If you are taking one pill a day, take four 200 mg capsules of an over-the -counter supplement. More information.
