Doug, you should be careful recommending potassium supplements to people. You can actually have too much potassium. Too much or too little can be dangerous. You should only be taking a supplement like potassium if lab work shows that you are deficient. Potassium has to do with the electrical conduction of your heart. So....be careful. Remember Dr. Kevorkian? He "helped" people die by using potassium injections. As for the question, I think the above answer would be a good starting point, log your episodes.
