I have been taking simvastatin for 2 months. My legs and feet cramp terrible. Does anyone else have this problem? If so what can I do for relief? ## Simvastatin, the generic for Zocor, is commonly used to help lower cholesterol. Unfortunately, many people experience side effects from Statin medications. That said, muscle cramping is listed as a rare side effect, this means you should contact your doctor immediately to report it to them. You may require a dosage or medication change. You can read more on the medication here: Have you mentioned this to your doctor, yet? ...

Having cramps in my legs in the day time and as I sleep what can I do? ## RLS and leg cramping are 2 different things. RLS constitutes the uncontrollable urge to move your legs, mainly while sleeping and not just cramping. If you're just experiencing cramping, then there is most likely an underlying cause, such as being deficient in Potassium and adding a supplement can help, but it shouldn't be done without your doctors approval. Learn more Potassium details here. Another thing that may cause it is dehydration. Have you been more active than usual? ## I have it in my arms and legs, Oxycodone does zap it! Gone 5 mg but I'm so afraid of addiction, I'm thinking of asking for Medical marihuana see can't even spell that lack of sleep Because I'm afraid of ... ...

Dehydration causing leg cramps
1 Reply RSS
Could Zanidip be causing leg cramps at night. I am either up with leg cramps or up to the toilet. I drink 2 lts of water a day, and if that drops even the smallest bit, the cramps get worse. Something is dehydrating me. ## Zanidip contains the active ingredient Lercanidipine, it is a calcium channel blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, but is also effective at treating certain cardiac conditions. By their very nature, many of these medications increase urinary output and can cause dehydration. However, another thing that could be causing the leg cramping is low potassium levels. Some of these medications can cause it and it will cause leg cramps, just as easily as the dehydration. It could even be a combination of both, with one problem feeding the other. Hav... ...

I was on Coumadin for 7 yrs and doc offered xarelto with no testing. I've been on it a month and terrible stomach burning that makes me doubke over and constant leg cramps. ## Hello, Susanne! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. However, you are not the first person to report such issues with Xarelto. There have been many complaints about it and quite a few people had to stop taking it. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, increased risk of bleeding and headache. Have you tried anything to alleviate the stomach issue? Are you taking it on an empty stomach? ## I have not had the "stomach cramping" however, after being on Xarelto since September 2014 I have gain 30lbs. My stomach is fully extended and painful.

Does it cause every morning leg cramping? ## Hello, Dottie! How are you? Sorry about the cramping. This tablet contains 100mgs of Losartan, which is an ARB that's used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Learn more Losartan details here. And yes, it has been known to cause muscle cramping. That has to be very annoying and you should talk to your doctor about trying a different medication. Most side effects wear off after about 4 to 6 weeks, once your body gets used to a medication, but I can't imaging living with it for that long, when there are so many other options out there that you can try. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Has anyone else experienced leg cramping all night long with this medicine. It's like a charlie horse cramping and it goes every 20 seconds all night long. I also take cozaar. ## Yes, I have experienced charlie horse cramping in my legs since using this medication. Not often but yes. ## IVE BEEN HAVING THE CHARLIE HORSE CRAMPS IN MY LEGS TOO....I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME... ## I just checked the monograph and this is not listed as a common/normal side effect. You may want to speak to the prescribing doctor regarding this, there are other options that could be prescribed that may not cause the same problem. A lot of time, nightime leg cramps are caused by a loss of Potassium in the body, however, this is SUPPOSED to be a Potassium sparing diuretic, so it really makes no sense. ## This ... ...

i experienced severe cramping in arms ans both legs taking this medication is that a knowm side-effect with this drug ## Hi Glenda, Based on my research, Septra (Trimethoprim + Sulfamethoxazole) does list "joint aches" as a potentially severe side effect that you should contact your doctor about immediately. Ref: If anything, your doctor may simply have you change dosages or switch medications to something more tolerable.

Savella For Fybromyalgia
2 Replies RSS
I am getting off Savella , due to sever leg & hand cramping, nausea, fast irregular heartbeat, and trouble sleeping. Savella did help me with the Fybromyalgia pain for the first 2 months and it was great not to feel pain, but now as other medications " The Thrill is Gone". I am still having the leg cramping ; how long will that go on ??? ## Since you were on it for a few months, it may take about a month for your body to adjust to no longer having it and for the effects to taper off, so things return to normal. Will you be trying something different, now? ## Well, I don't know what my Doctor is going to offer now. I have tried most of all the new medications but it seems that I get all the side effects to them . When the pain level gets to a 10 then I go to the ER & ... ...

Can Quinine Bladder Problems
1 Reply RSS
Im taking tonic water with quinine for cramping in my feet and legs and it helps but I have to empty my bladder all the time and it hard to hold. ## Hi maggie, In my honest opinion the side effect list for Quinine is pretty nerve racking. And although I didn't see a mention of any bladder-related concerns, I do have reason to suspect that one or more other side effects of this drug may be indirectly causing it: nausea restlessness difficulty hearing or ringing in the ears confusion nervousness rash hives itching flushing hoarseness difficulty breathing or swallowing swelling of the face, throat, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs fever blisters stomach pain vomiting diarrhea blurriness or changes in color vision inability to hear or see faintness easy bruising purple, bro... ...

Hellllloooo, my legs and my hands become stiff when I hang or do not position them well. And I learnt that, this can lead to stroke. How can mecobalamin help me. ## Hello, Extrovert! How are you? No, such a thing will not lead to a stroke. Everyone gets stiffness and cramping, now and then and, while it can be uncomfortable, it isn't dangerous. Methylcobalamin is classified by the FDA as a B vitamin supplement, so while it is good for you and your body needs some of it each day, it doesn't actually treat or prevent muscle cramping, stiffness or stroke. Have you consulted a doctor? ...

Accord simvistatin 40

My husband takes Accord simvastatin 40 but he has been told by Lloyds pharmacist that these are no longer available. Accord are the only ones that do not cause "cramping" in his legs. Have they been withdrawn or are they still available? The present ones he is using are TEVA ,made in Hungary, which cause a "hangover" type headache in the mornings. ## Hi Pamela, I'm having trouble finding any information in regards to Accord Simvastatin being withdrawn from the market. Maybe it just isn't available at that specific pharmacy, have you tried calling other pharmacies in the area to see if they carry it? I'm sorry that the ones from TEVA cause problems, I wish I knew how to help. Has your husband made any changes to his diet or exercise routine to help lower chole... ...
