I have recently been switched from 4 Klor-Con M20 tabs to 6 Micro-K meq CR Caps daily. I want to know if the dosage is the same.

Sorry this question has taken so long to answer.
No, the dosage is not the same.
Klor-Con® M20 tablets contains 1500 mg of potassium chloride equivalent to 20 mEq of potassium.
Micro-K® 10 ExtencapsCapsules contain 750 mg of potassium chloride, equivalent to 10 mEq of potassium.
You were taking 80 mEq of potassium (from the Klor-Con) and now you are taking 60 mEq of potassium (from the Micro-K)
