I am a 54 years old male, taking daily evion 400mg on doctor friends advice to prevent muscle cramps. If I do not take for 2 to 3 days that medicine, at the time of getting up iam having muscle cramps in legs. Is there any permanent cure for this.

You may be having low vitamin d or calcium. So get your vitamin d levels done fasting and start calcium supplements. If you are on cholesterol lowering drugs, then they are also a cause of cramps. Low vitamin b12 levels can also sometimes cause cramps so get that tested in your blood as well. Revert back with investigations.
