It depends on what the substance is. You need to know the valence of the ion, and its molecular weight.

I take 4 mEq but would like to know how many mg pills I would need to take instead.

Re: mEq to mg conversion

If post #3 is correct and Potassium gluconate has 4.3 mEq /1000 mg and Potassium Chloride has 13.4 mEq /1000 mg then wouldn't you just need to take 3 times as much gluconate as chloride by volume to get the same amount of potassium?
For instance if you are taking 2 grams of Potassium Chloride wouldn't you need six grams of potassium gluconate unless they have different absorbability in the body? Also 6 grams may taste a lot more salty than 2 grams?

Re: mEq to mg conversion

Hi you all sound like scientists, and I am NOT. My husband takes potassium citrate
(4 each day and each one has 10 MEQ). They are quite expensive without insurance that
we dont have. I have been reading about OTC orderable potassium citrate at about 1/8th the cost. They all seem to have 99 mg and some same 258 mg of citrate potassium and
99 mg of elemental potassium. I have tried to figure out how many he would need to take compared to what he has now. Does anyone know if I divide by 258 or 99. Thanks
Connie

I assume these are taken for the potassium. 10 mEq is 390 mg (per pill), 4/day is 1560 mg elemental potassium. If the OTC pills are 99/mg elemental potassium, 15.75 tablets (round to 15 or 16). With some rounding the 99 mg is about 2.5 mEq, or one quarter the strength of the prescription pills. But he should discuss the proposed strategy with his doctor or pharmacist.
