G'day

has anyone got any good supplements for muscle cramps,

My auntie gets severe muscle cramps whilst she is sleeping.

any tips would be appreciated

She is on some other medications

Actonel, anpac, somac, solprin

I have no medical background, but I have heard zinc helps. However, the first thing to make sure she is well hydrated as this contributed to cramping.

electro lytes. Usually low potassium but maybe salt as well. Banana and cabbage are great for the Potas..

Oh and simply being hydrated is she drinking enough fluids.
