So the doctor has prescribed it for me 30 meq, 3x per day ref kidney stones. Is this just a more concentrated amount than the kind available over the counter? HUGE price difference...

Hey there "Mountain Girl" ! I Love your handle! There really isn't any such thing as a vitamin supplement for potassium. As far as i know, all 5 types of Potassium are just plain ol' Mineral supplements with differen't strengths (ie 99mg elemental potassium) They can advertise 'em any way they want to make a few extra bucks, but it's all just different types and strengths of potassium. Sacosam I AM!
