Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Potassium gluconate is better tolerated and hence preferred.

The dose is 2 tablets daily if you do not have any kidney problem.

This is available as K-99 tablets.
Best wishes,
