The Increasing Complexity of Elderly Prescribing: Myotoxicity With the Combination of Daptomycin, Atorvastatin, and ColchicineErlandson, Kristine Mace MD; Castillo-Mancilla, Jose MDInfectious Diseases in Clinical Practice: November 2010 - Volume 18 - Issue 6 - pp 399-401 doi: 10.1097/IPC.0b013e3181d608fa Case Reports Abstract Author Information 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. From the Division of Infectious Diseases, University of Colorado, Denver, CO.
