ususmlestatins cause both hepatotoxic and mypopathy so I want for hepatotoxic:( I thought usmle expects different stuff+12019-08-05T08:13:33Z
drzedStatins don't cause 'toxic hepatitis' they just cause a mild asymptomatic rise in LFTs that is reversible with discontinuation of the drug. The more worrisome side effect is of course, myopathy+12020-02-06T16:10:47Z
statins cause both liver injury and myopathy in a dose related, so kidney failure increases their dose, which leads both liver and muscle risk elevated;
Pravastatin is said less liver concerns but the myopathy, so choose myopathy when renal failure.
