Hello, Paul! How are you?

That means that they contain 20 milliequivalents per tablet, that's the dosage and the ER denotes them as being time released.

The main side effect of this supplement, as listed by the FDA, is stomach pain and nausea, so it's best to take it with food.

As to the stiffness and cramping, that is most likely caused by your potassium being low, but you should have it checked out, just in case.

Is there anything else I can help with?
