How do I know if I'm one of the people at risk for rhabdomyolysis?

Your doctor took your complete medical history into consideration when he or she prescribed a statin. However, you should talk to your doctor if you have any concerns about this issue. The people who are at increased risk for this very rare but serious side effect when taking a statin include those with:

  • Advanced age (65 years or older);
  • Low thyroid hormone levels (hypothyroidism);
  • Kidney disease.
