First of all I am empathetic to your situation,  My husband is in end stage liver failure and has been cramping all day. Over the counter leg cramp pills: Hylands legcramp with Quinine work for him. I purchased these at walmart. Quinine was supposed to have been outlawed in the US according to one pharmacist, but like I said I found these at Walmart.  Yesterday the Dr. told us to try low sodium tonic water, I think it also has quinine in it. Braggs apple cider vinegar is also high in potassium, works for some people, has to be Braggs brand.
Hope he gets better soon!
