Ask the doctor
Are heart drugs causing my nighttime leg cramps?
Q. Many nights I wake up once, twice, or several times with leg cramps. The only medications I take are a statin, niacin, Plavix, and baby aspirin. Are any of them causing these aggravating cramps?
A. It's possible. But there are other causes you might want to consider, too.
