Supplements linked to ‘potentially deadly’ rhabdomyolysis

Caffeine supplements are taken primarily to stimulate the nervous system and help prevent sleepiness.

In sports, they are often used by athletes to boost performance and relieve migraines and tension headaches.

Creatine supplements offer similar benefits to athletes, with the added benefit of fast muscle recovery after exercise.

Typical risk factors for rhabdomyolysis include dehydration, alcoholism and drug use, and it’s been suspected that creatine supplements increase the risk of dehydration.
