Hi fdec,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
You have recently started the Zyloric, the drug causes myalgia and malaise initially in some patients but the body gets adjusted soon and these problems subside soon without treatment.
So you should continue the current treatment.
Zyloric can affect the liver also so please get Liver function test done as soon as possible.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
