Patient : I have bee hypertensive for 30 years and am taking Verapamil, HCTZ and Losartan. I also take 99mg potassium bid. My potassium levels have always been fine. Recent bloodwork showed my potassium level as 2.9. My PCP has now prescribed chlor-kon. Why would my potassium levels all of the sudden drop to such low levels?
