[QUOTE]Can Benicar and Tricor be taken together together?
Do they cause aches and pains
There are no known interactions between these two drugs.
Both can cause muscle weakness and tenderness, muscle aches and pain. Both of these can also cause rhabdomyolysis. In this disease, the muscle fibers break down and are released into the circulation. Some of these fibers are toxic. As a result, the kidneys are damaged. The damage to the muscles and the kidneys is irreversible.
If you are experiencing problems with your muscles, report these to your doctor promptly. You may have to discontinue both drugs.
