In the Results subsection of the Abstract, there is an error in the P-value in the second sentence. The correct sentence is: At follow-up, no difference was found in the prevalence of self-reported hindering muscle complaints in statin users compared to non-statin users (3.3% vs. 2.5%, OR 1.39, 95% CI 0.94–2.05; P = 0.10).

In the Hindering muscle complaints subsection of the Results, there is an error in the P-value in the third sentence. The correct sentence is: After adjustment for age and sex there was no difference in the prevalence of muscle complaints between the two groups (ORstatin use = 1.39, 95% CI 0.94–2.05; P = 0.10).
