Statins: Ways to overcome muscle-related complications may include alternate-day dosing
Share this @internewscast.com


Myopathy comprises a spectrum of muscle-related complications such as myalgia, myositis, rhabdomyolysis, and an asymptomatic increase in the concentration of creatine kinase.

Studies assessing the prevalence of statin-induced myopathy have produced varying results, but all point to a low incidence rate.

Many who develop the disorder are able to live a normal lifespan with little or no disability.

For others, however, the disorder can be progressive, severely disabling, life-threatening or fatal.
