Cramps in toes
Hi Doc !
I am a 52 yr old lady and I take 1/2 a ridag tablet once a day to control my blood pressure.
I have been experiencing some really painful cramps in my toes lately when i sit with my feet up and also when I am in bed.
Is there a vitamin that I need ? If yes...can you or anyone out there tell me what to take. Just when i get all comfortable the cramps start ! Pleeeze help!

Denise, Ridaq® may cause potassium loss and this might be the cause of your symptoms. The problem is that I can’t guarantee it from this side of the screen and therefore the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
