Incidence of muscle soreness (myalgia) after suxamethonium is:
a. Incidence of myalgia is very high after succinylcholine
b. It is seen in almost half of the cases and this is due tol excessive muscle fasciculations. The incidence of myalgias can be reduced by precurarization which means giving one tenth dose of non-depolarizing relaxant 31 minutes prior to succinylcholine.
