    Potassium for high blood pressure

    Anyone take potassium supplement daily? How much? For HBP.

    If you have high blood pressure, I wouldn't start taking potassium supplements and I would see a doctor right away for proper treatment.

    What POB said. Taking potassium for hypertension rates pretty high on the list of not good ideas.

    This is very true, too high or low of potassium can lead to abnormal heart rhythms, a lot of times fatal abnormal rhythms.

    Check family history too. If you have a history of HBP you will more than likely need to take daily medication. I would never supp. potassium.
