My doctor just changed my Rx from the first one to the second one.
What's the difference between POT CHLOR ER TABS 10 MEQ and KLOR-CON 10 E.R. TABS 10 MEQ?

I'm to match the number of tablets to the number of furosemide (Lasix) tabs 20 mg that I take as needed.
Potassium chloride is generic and Klor-Con is a brand name for potassium chloride. The only possible difference would be in the inactive ingredients.
There is very little difference between the tablets except that they are made by different drug companies and may have different excipients (ingredients to make the tablets other than the active ingredients). They both contain 10 meq (milliequivalent) of the active ingredient Potassium Choride and are extended release (ER).
