The supplement Potassium Gluconate helps my muscle strength. Without it, I have weakness that becomes tremors at its worst. You can buy Potassium Gluconate over-the-counter (regular form or timed-release). Get a doctor’s advice first to ensure it doesn’t conflict with your other meds. A food high in potassium is canned salmon. I went through a few years where I ate one 200-gram can of salmon a day, and I am not kidding. That was just before 2000, at which time nutrition labels became more detailed. I studied the new label to find what salmon had that helped me, and found it listed a high potassium content. I changed to K supplements. What a relief: I like salmon, but felt saturated with it.
