I have been on and off this medication. It seems after a few months, I start with leg cramps (mostly my left leg around the ankle up) and my hands. Every time I call my doctor, they tell me to stop this med until the cramps go away and start on it again. It does help lower my cholesterol problems but I am having cramps again for about 3 weeks now. Could this be due to some other medication I am taking? I take Gabapentin 400mg 3 pills 3x a day and have been on this medication for years. Could this be the culprit? I take a muscle relaxer at night Baclofen 10mg 1 pill at night and this helps me sleep. I have also been on this medication for almost a year. Any advise?
