Look for Meds Linked to Nighttime Leg Cramps
People with nighttime leg cramps will try anything...from drinking pickle juice to putting a bar of soap under their bedsheet.
This painful tightening usually occurs in the calf muscle. The cause is often unknown...but can sometimes be due to meds or electrolyte problems.
Help your pharmacist look for meds linked to leg cramps, such as diuretics (hydrochlorothiazide, etc), inhaled beta-agonists (albuterol, etc), or nifedipine.
