A direct answer is simple... if you have pills that are each 99 mg and you need 10 mEq, you should take four tabs per day. Total intake would equal 10.12 mEq (253 mEq per 99 mg pill).
I saw where one answered 3.5 tablets to make 10meq
He or she need to check their math
10 meq is 750 mg of potassium
Thus 7 x 99 = 693
7.5 x 99 = 742.5
8 x 99 = 792
So if you prefer to take multiple tablets you will have to take 8 to get your 750 mg or 10 meq of potassium
99 mg is 2.53 meq. so 3.95 tablets would be 10 meq
