If you have low levels of potassium in your blood (hypokalemia) or if you have a condition that depletes the body of potassium, your doctor may prescribe potassium chloride. Because having too much or too little potassium in the blood can cause health problems, your doctor will determine how much potassium supplementation you need and monitor your potassium blood levels.
