For 80 mgs of Lasix, you would need at least 40 meq of potassium, klor or whatever potassium supplement your drug store uses. It's also important to get your potassium levels checked on a regular basis as low and high potassium affect your heart. The ranges are approximately 3.5 to 4.5. In the ICU there is a saying, "K of 7, go to heaven", but not likely to happen on oral potassium as most of the excess is excreted. K is the periodic abbreviation for potassium.
Take care and check your potassium every so often.
