Statins can lead to myalgia (muscle pain), myopathy, elevated creatin in ekinase (myonecrosis) and rhabdomyolysis.4,5 Studies have reported that muscle and tendon related side effects were most commonly noticed in patients treated with rosuvastatin while pravastatin and lovastatin have the lowest rate of side effects.6 Onset of myalgia varies from patient to patient and starts after a few weeks to years of statin therapy.7 Myalgia could be generalised or localised, and persists for more than 3 months after discontinuation of statin therapy with average duration of six-and-a-half months.8
