This is Dr. David

lasix can cause you to loose potassium out of your system.

you should take your potassium supplement when you take your lasix 40mg

you can take it at the same time

Potassium Gluconate 595 mg equals 2.5 meq of potassium

Klor-Con 10 is 10 meq of potassium

Klor-Con 20 is 20 meq of potassium

So the chemical equivalent of one Klor-Con 20 meq tablet approximately 8 Potassium Gluconate tablets

let me know if you have other questions.

I would not recommend adjusting your potassium based on what is said on this site

your doctor might want you on potassium all the time.
