Thanks for the update and I look forward to hearing how the potassium works for you. I eat so many bananas that my first thought was magnesium -- that's what I'm
lacking when I get cramps. I can't imagine ever needing to take a potassium supplement myself.
Yes, various blood pressure meds can throw off the electrolites (magnesium, potassium, calcium). You might poke your nose into the High & Low Blood Pressure board and look at some of the threads there regarding diuretics.
And MerelyMe has a very good point as well, that I'm trying to keep in mind myself. Weak muscles cramp easily when they're asked to do the least amount of work. Sigh. There are lots of other things I'd rather be doing than exercise. But I don't enjoy cramping. Soooo...
Thanks for the discussion. Keep us posted. All those people who are reading but not posting are curious as well.
