Neurogenic Muscle Tetany (contractions)
Do you take a Potassium supplement for these contractions? I do, and it seems to help lessen my muscle contractions and cramps.

Hello mojosteve1961, I am Sunnyflower. I'm not clear who this message is intended for? If for me, then yes, I take 40mEq, twice daily w/ diuretics aka blood pressure and CHF meds. When I have to take a little more of those, I take more Potassium. And, more Magnesium. Even a Valium. NOTHING works. Brutal! I hope you're doing well and am so glad the Potassium works for you! Warmest regards, Sunnyflower
