Leg cramps are a common side effect of evista & if the cramps are persistent & disabling, then you need to speak to your doctor for possible modification of prescription.

Please note that there may be other causes of leg cramps like dehydration, exercise, electrolytre depletion, lumbar spinal canal stenosis, peripheral vascular disease & few more causes. These need to be considered in differential diagnosis. A physical exam & few tests can help in making the diagnosis.
