The Increasing Complexity of Elderly Prescribing: Myotoxicity With the Combination of Daptomycin, Atorvastatin, and Colchicine

Erlandson, Kristine Mace MD; Castillo-Mancilla, Jose MD

Collapse Box


Daptomycin is generally well tolerated; however, myopathy and rhabdomyolysis have been reported during therapy. Because of the risk of myalgias, other drugs with the potential for myopathy should be used cautiously in combination with daptomycin. We report a case of myopathy due to a combination of daptomycin, colchicine, and atorvastatin.
