Shall I take potassium supplements?

Hi,

I am taking one pill of Avopro 150mg in the morning and half pill of indapamide before going to bed. I understand that potassium supplements are recommended if taking indapamide alone. Right now I am taking avopro and indapamide at the same time. I do not know if I still need to take potassium supplements as I heard Avopro tend to increase potassium levels.

Thanks for your suggestions.

You really need to ask your doctor so they can make sure there are no dangerous reactions to your current drugs.
