From this study (4 years ago):
Patricia Ranum on Dec, 18, 2010:
TAKING TWO MEDICATIONS THAT CAUSE MUSCLE SORENESS MAKE IDENTIFICATIONS OF A CAUSE VERY DIFFICULT!
Circa 2000 I began, more at the same time, ZOCOR and EVISTA. Within a year or so I began having leg pain just below the knees that mystified sports medicine and my internists. Sometimes it hurt so much that I could not walk comfortably. When I had to walk a lot, Arthrotec (a NSAID) masked a lot of the pain, but not all. By 2005 the likely culprit seemed to be ZOCOR, which caused terrible spasms throughout my body. I stopped the ZOCOR and the spasms stopped promptly. But the sore legs did not go away; in fact, they because increasingly worse, until I have to take Arthrotec every day if I want to do much walking. In 2009 I developed ileo-tibial band syndrome. Now, in late 2010, my gynecologist suggested I stop the EVISTA. I've been off it for 2 months and thus far see less improvement than I had hoped for. If only I had known about the myalgia early on!! Life would have been so much more pleasant!!!
