I thought about taking salt tablets when I sweat a lot from running, but I decided against it. Instead, I prefer to eat salty food because it tastes good, and you lose that enjoyment if you just take a pill. The pills might be more important if you’re trying to complete longer endurance events like a marathon, because acute electrolyte depletion can be a more serious concern.

I would imagine that a salt pill would cause thirst just like eating salty food, but I could be wrong about that.
