this would be okay

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Yes, you can take the hydrochlorothiazide and potassium cl together. Hydrochlorothiazide decreases potassium levels and the potassium supplements would help to maintain normal levels

Your potassium levels should still be monitored intermittently

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
