Does taking Pramipexole and apple cider vinegar together cause leg cramps?

I am taking Pramipexole 0.125mg.. 2 tabs every night. I was also taking Apple Cider Vinegar in distilled H2O 3 times a day to help with my weight problem. I ve had some very strong cramping in my calves of my legs and my hands. I do have Dupuytrens. (sp). Is it possible that the Pramipexole conflicts with the ACV? I stopped taking the ACV and the cramps stopped. ???

i started taking apple cider vinegar capsules and have been experiencing leg cramps. I also take hydrochlorathiazide and simvasttin is it a combination of these that could be contributing to my leg cramps. I have also been eating a banana a day. It may sound crazy as it has only been six days but I am loosing some weight and don t want to stop but obviously do not want any health threats either

I am currently a heart patient, and have started to experience leg cramps. What could be some reasons for that. I ve had them in the past, but not as often. I ve heard they can be from medications, or dehydration? I ve taken two 99mg over the counter potassium the last several nights, but still get cramps several times a night. They only seem to happen when my legs are up in a recliner, or in bed. Can I take more potassium or is there a maximum a person can take? Or is there something else that might cause them? Mike,
