Brief Answer:
Blood test for potassium level

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns.

Klor con is used in cases of low blood Potassium, so to determine wether you still need it or not, I would first recommend that you get a blood test for the potassuim level in your blood. If the test result was normal [( 3.5-5.2 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L) or 3.5-5.2 millimoles per liter (mmol/L)] then you should stop taking Klor con.

If your potassuim level was lower than normal level then you should continue taking it.
I hope I answered your question.
Feel free to ask further.
Regards
