Armidex and muscle cramps
carolyndiane posted:
I'm in my 4th year of taking Armidex. I have increased my calcium intake to 2400mg a day and cramps have subsided. A quick relief is a glass of milk.

I am also in my 4th year of taking
arimidex, and I also take additional calcium. I have not had difficulty with muscle cramps, only an ocassional one now and then.It's a good idea to take a Vitamin K supplement also. It's necessary in the absorption of calcium--it directs the calcium into the bones, instead of the blood vessels.

The leg cramping and discomfort do seem to lessen with time. I have issues on occasion but much less than in the first 2 years. I am going on my 4th year as well on this pill.
Staying hydrated does seem to make a big difference.
