Who should not use chloride?

Certain people should not use chloride or should consult with a doctor before taking it. People with allergies to chloride should avoid chloride supplements. Those who already ingest a healthy dose of chloride in their daily diets (about two grams per day for adults) do not need supplements, as they may cause a chloride overdose, which can be poisonous to the body. Those who eat a large amount of salt in particular should avoid chloride supplements. People with chronically high levels of chloride in their blood (a condition called hyperchloremia) should not take chloride supplements.
