My doctor has tried me on two different antihistamines now, Loratadine and Cetirizine. Both give me cramps. I have no deficiencies and am in health good.

Any ideas anyone?

Many thanks. I am in the UK.

According to the NIH, they have been known to cause leg cramps as a side effect, in some people that take them. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness, and headache.

How long did you try each one? Such side effects usually go away, after about 5 to 6 weeks, once your body gets used to a medication.

Re: Verwon (# 1)

I was on Cimetidine for almost two years and Loratidine for three months. Enough time to connect them to leg cramps. The Loratidine also caused me to have very vivid dreams and so I rarely felt refreshed int he mornings!

I was on Cetirizine about two years. Loratidine about four months. Since stopping the Loratidine the nighttime cramps have gone as have the vivid dreams.
