Fenofibrate induced myopathy is a rare adverse event. We present a case of muscle pain and quadriparesis following administration of 200mg of fenofibrate for 35 days. Patient gradually improved after stopping the drug. As per our knowledge, this is probably the first case report of fenofibrate induced myopathy from India.
