No, statins do not cause leg cramping.
Surprisingly, it's only just recently that this commonly held belief has been debunked and thus relegated to the category of NOCEBO.
The NOCEBO effect is when the pre-formed expectation of an effect creates an association with an unrelated symptom.
Call it "guilt by association" if you like.
It's a great relief to know that statins can be taken without regard to this incorrect association.
They remain unchallenged in their role of reducing vascular diseases such as heart attack and strokes

As Sami mentioned, deltazin is the brand name. The drug is articaine hydrochloride 4% with adrenaline 1:100000, but also available as 1:200000 adrenaline (epinephrin in USA). Septodont supply it through Henry Schein Halas and Dentsply-Sirona also supply it under their own branding. You will need to register with them as a prescriber with your AHPRA details.
