Does K-Lor interact with other medications or food?

If you are taking K-Lor, you should be careful about potassium levels in your diet. A potassium overdose can be potentially dangerous. You should be cautious about salt substitutes and low-salt products, which often contain large amounts of potassium. Also, be wary of drugs that may affect the amount of potassium in your body. These include angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, diuretics, bronchodilators, quinidine, digoxin and eplerenone. If you are taking K-Lor, it is probably a good idea to discuss all new drugs and major dietary changes with your doctor.
