Is there danger with taking Pravastatin and Tricor at the same time?

Tricor may significantly increase your risk of developing muscle pain/breakdown while taking Pravastatin. As a result, these drugs are normally not used together. If you are taking both of these medications, talk to your doctor to find out more about your condition and risks of these medications so that you can carefully weigh the benefits versus the risks of the two treatments.  If you are taking one or both of these medications, please contact your doctor immediately if you have unexplained muscle pain or muscle weakness as these can be early signs of a more serious condition of muscle breakdown.
