In brief: Exercise before med
Need to know why you have myalgia.
You may not need any meds. Myalgias can be due to something. Find what this soemthign is. Some suggestions: statin medications. Are you on a cholesterol lowering drug? Myalgias are common in fibromyalgia. If you have that you need to concerntrate on such things as exercise, stress reduction and improved sleep. These may not need meds either.
