Thanks for the question.
Statins have myalgia ( muscle pain) as a side effect across the board.
Not everyone on statins will get this side effect and different statins may have different effect on a particular individual.
If you have had myalgia with previous use of a statin it may be worthwhile to discuss starting a different statin with your doctor.
Do you have any other question?
