Sort Through Options for Treating Nocturnal Leg Cramps
People with nocturnal leg cramps will try anything...from drinking pickle juice to putting a bar of soap under their bedsheet.
But there's not much evidence for most leg cramp remedies.
Start by looking for meds linked to leg cramps...such as diuretics, inhaled beta-agonists (albuterol, etc), or nifedipine. Switching to another med or lowering the dose might help.
