What is usually prescribed for pain relief in rhabdomyolysis as you are "Detoxing" the statin and the built-up muscle toxins? My doctor gave me high dose Ibuprofen to do 4 times a day and something called Relafen to do twice a day. And to drink a ton of water and Gatorade. And... basically just wait it out.

Took Lovastatin for a little over two years

  • Hey, have been having this trouble myself. Went to doc's with pain complaints as the statin was eating me up. I then had what looked like carple tunnel syndrome and was prescribed Ibprofin or extra strength Advil. After taking Ibuprofen for a while, strange things again were happening. I was kind of getting better and worse at the same time. Checking deeper I found that if you have Rhabdomyolysis those two drugs exacerbates the condition. So, be careful.-doug-
