I took Nyquil about 3 hours ago. I will also be getting cramps tonight. I have naproxen, Bayer, (aspirin) and paracetamol. Which would be best to take?

Worthwhile to try changing exercise habits, taking multi mineral and vitamin supplement, doing stretching exercises, wearing shoes with good support, and making sure to be well hydrated. Severe cases may be treated with benadryl, (diphenhydramine) gabapentin or even quinine like meds or benzos ...Read more
