I am wondering if anyone knows why potassium supplements cannot be taken with Ramipril and Atenolol. These medications are for blood pressure. I am a diabetic with some Kidney problems and these medications were prescribed. I have recently found an amazing diet clinic-The Dr. Bernstein programme, which uses Potassium supplements as well as three-times weekly vitimin B12 shots. This is a drastic diet with amazing results. Very low calarie count-no butter or oils, only 3and a half ounces of meat weekly, lots of egg-whites, fruits and vegs. It really works, but I seem to be at odds the the various doctors. Any info would be appreciated.
