    Asthma related leg cramps

    I am getting night time leg cramps, never in the day. This has started since I have started taking asthma meds (including breathing machine, Breo, and all other inhalers). Is this the norm or is there a problem? I am taking Methocarbam 750mg and that is NOT helping.

    Hi there and welcome,

    Please call your doctor and share you concerns and symptoms. It very well could be your asthma medications, but call the doc to be sure.

    I'm sure other users will chime in, but in the meantime, you can always use our "Find or Review a Drug" function under the Drug & Supplements tab on WebMD.com. The "Find or Review a Drug" function allows you to look up user reviews on specific medications.

    Here is the one for Methocarbam: http://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-8677/methocarbamol-oral/details

    I hope you feel better!
