Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Following are the common drugs leading to muscle weakness and fatigue, and eventually muscle dystrophy in long run-
1. Almost all blood pressure lowering drugs
2. Cholestrol lowering drugs like atrovastatins and fenofibrate (tricor).
3. Drugs used to treat gastric ulcer like-esomeprazole (Nexium), lansoperazole, omeprazole, pantoperazole.
4. Medicine given for anxiety like-alprazolam (alprax).antipsychotic drugs, antidepressant drugs.
Hope this answers your query.
Take care
