I also have used this drug for cramping of the inner thigh, legs and toes. I have tried other drugs but nothing works as well as this. I've been using it for several years now and suffered no repercusions.

This medication has not worked for me. I have very itchy lower arms and stomach pains. It also leaves a very bitter taste in mouth as well. I think I would rather do without
