    My rheumatologist suggested this for leg cramps many years ago. I went off it recently because of the restrictions but it is the ONLY medicine that helps. I went back on it 5 days ago and I have had no cramps since I took the first one. (Actually, I didn't think it would work, but the cramps just disappeared.)

    I had been taking quinine for cramps. The cramps I get are not localized in the legs. I got them under the rib cage, neck, under the jaw, arches of the feet and sides. I can't recall all the various places I got them. Went through the same thing, Quinine not allowed. One Doctor wrote me a script for Qualaquin and have had no further problems.... couple of cramps a month but nothing like I did ... Show Full Comment

    Having suffered very severe leg cramps for years, my doctor prescribed this drug with outstanding results.......no leg cramps. Now, I am not able to get it as my insurance company had refused to refill my prescription. If the drug company needs me as a test/trial person, please call me.....now the nightly cramps are returning no matter how much water I drink or how many bananas I eat.

    I used quidine and it worked very well for me. I have leg cramps that are excrusiating. I finally talked my doctor into writing me a prescription and he wrote it for Qualaquin. Which I realize it is the bran name. I have tried all week to find someone that will call the insurance co. and get it pre authorized.

I was getting cramps 2 to 6 times each night.They have stopped.If the FDA says that this medication does not help with cramps , they need to use me as a test case!
