CASIIE,

Since I've never had a potassium problem (low sodium bedevilled me on HCTZ) I can;t speak from experience. From the fuss in the literature (and my doctor) it seems LASIX will more readily cause potassium excretion...probably more so than thiazide. I'm not sure though.

Perhaps I've never kad a K+ problem because I also take Cozaar (potassium sparing?)

The 20 Meq (800 mg.) K+ sounds about right for you...horse pill though it is. If you swizzle it around in your mouth with water for a second before swallowing, it slips down easier.;)
