... rhabdomylosis. I had just been put on AZOR. Since then everytime I go out in the sun, I start to cramp, anxiety sets in and I get very tired. Could this be a side effect of AZOR?
Did they determine the cause of the rhabdomylosis? The only thing that comes to my mind is an electrolyte imbalance which can cause the rhabdomylosis and the other symptoms you mention when you go out in the sun. Your potassium, magnesium and/or calcium levels may be out of whack. You need to discuss this with the doctor as soon as possible.
Your med could be causing this here is some of the side effects found on theis drug, hope it helps. I would call the prescribing doctor & report this side effect.:

It lists muscle pain, but do not know if that includes cramping. so let you doctor be your guide.
