I suggest that you consult your doctor to evaluate your electrolytes. If there is an abnormality, your doctor can rectifiy the problem by supplementing your electrolytes intravenuously. Your doctor should also evaluate your kidney function, to assess where you are loosing potassium.

You don''t say what your bp is - this info would help CD with advice! Perhaps you should return to the prescribing doc and have it checked out again!
