Muscle weakness (like rhabimyosis)
May 10, 2010

Have you ever heard of Diovan (blood pressure med) causing an extended muscle weakness. I took it for 15 days in February and am still suffering. How long does it take to heal.

Response from Mr. Vergel

I searched for muscle weakness as a side effect of Diovan and found nothing. I took it for a while and my only problem was fatigue.

Are you taking any statins, AZT, Combivir, diuretics, or any other drugs that could cause muscle weakness?
