I don't take Mestinon. The information included with the prescription tells you about possible adverse effects and you had a doctor and a pharm tech to ask, yet you did not. The common adverse reactions are nausea & vomiting. The less common adverse reactions are headache (with higher doses), weakness, syncope (fainting), hypotension, thrombophlebitis, miosis (dry eye), abdominal cramps, diarrhea, excessive salivation, increased peristalsis (the movement of the intestines), muscle cramps, increased bronchial secretions, rash and diaphoresis (excessive sweating). The life-threatening adverse reactions are bradycardia, cardiac arrest, bronchospasm and bronchconstriction. But these reactions are rare. There's also Florinef and Midrodrine, both used to treat this incurable ANS disorder. Anytime you experience an adverse reaction, it should be reported to your prescriber. Did your doctor advise you to increase your sodium and fluid intake and use a recliner chair instead of resting in bed during the day among other things? Answered by Burton Good 1 year ago.

I recently tested positive through an EMG and possibly blood work (my AChR Antibody was slightly elevated) for Myasthenia Gravis, and I am going to the doctor soon to start the Ace-Inhibitor, Mestinon. He is not sure if I will start it orally or through an IV; we will decide at the upcoming appointment. Starting the Mestinon will also be partly diagnostic. I have a few questions about when I will notice results. -If I start it orally: 1. Will I notice any changes in my strength after one pill, or is it more like a steroid where I will need to take it for several days or weeks before I notice results? 2. If I notice results with one pill in the doctor’s office or at home, how long will it take before I feel better, and how long will it take for the affects to wear off? -If I start it through and IV: 3. How long will it take before I notice results? 4. How long will it take for the affects to wear off after the IV is stopped? Also, I am in my early twenties, and my symptoms include weakness in my arms and legs. My throat muscles are also a little weak causing me to have difficulty while swallowing as well as a nasally voice. Thank you for your help! Answered by Katlyn Blakes 1 year ago.

Mestinon (or Pyridostigmine) will work to counteract some of your symptoms pretty quickly. It is important to find the right dosage, the effect of too much Mestinon can be similar to too little of the drug. No single dose will suit all MG patients. It only lasts for a few hours, and does nothing to treat the underlying causes of your illness. I suggest keeping a journal and communicating with your health professional to find the right dosage and schedule.

My husband is taking mestinon, methotrexate, and prednisone for Myasthenia Gravis?
I cannot find any info. as if this will hurt the baby in the long run or not. I am 5w 3d pregnant. Any insight will be greatly appreciated? Asked by Christian Queen 1 year ago.

It will not harm the baby as long as you are not taking the drugs or significantly exposed. However, a pregnant woman should not take those medications. Have him wash his hands after he takes his pills (probably not necessary but it won't hurt to be careful) and keep his medication separate so there is no chance you could take it by mistake. As long as you do that you should be fine. Is this a question about him being on the medication when he inseminated you?...no risk at all in that case. Answered by Nadia Difede 1 year ago.

Hello, I have predison, mestinon and imuran for therapy. I have a problem speaking and when I have a flu I have trouble breathing. Can someone help me. Thank You. Asked by Corazon Rufus 1 year ago.

You are already receiving the the therapy that is most likely to work. The only thing that might be worth trying is substituting Neostigmine or something else for mestinon to see if there is something that might work better. You might also ask your doc about getting some type of inhaler or supplemental oxygen for times you have trouble breathing. There's probably nothing that can be done specifically for the speaking problems. Answered by Meda Metting 1 year ago.

Is myasthenia gravis can be cured by what means?
Hello, I have predison, mestinon and imuran for therapy. I have a problem speaking and when I have a flu I have trouble breathing. Can someone help me. Thank You. Asked by Ebony Vaulet 1 year ago.

You are already receiving the the therapy that is most likely to work. The only thing that might be worth trying is substituting Neostigmine or something else for mestinon to see if there is something that might work better. You might also ask your doc about getting some type of inhaler or supplemental oxygen for times you have trouble breathing. There's probably nothing that can be done specifically for the speaking problems. Answered by Valeria Putney 1 year ago.
