Abstract

Nine patients on maintenance hæmodialysis with frequent muscle cramps were given 320 mg quinine sulphate or placebo (in an identical gelatin capsule) at the beginning of each dialysis for a period of 12 weeks. The frequency of cramps was significantly reduced during dialysis in patients receiving quinine sulphate. None of the hæmatological, auditory, or visual disturbances ascribed to quinine sulphate were noted.
