Myasthenia gravis

Posted by @sabah, Sep 12, 2011

Dear all !
I have a friend who has what is called Myasthenia gravis.
He has been taking a medicine called MESTINON®(pyridostigmine bromide, USP) for almost 15 years. He lives in IRAQ. Most good doctors left the country because of death threats or kidnapping. He would like to know if there is any updated medicine for the Myasthenia gravis. PLEASE if you know any new medicine other than the MESTINON®(pyridostigmine bromide, USP) let me know ASAP because my friend’s health is declining .
Thank you very much for your help.
God bless you all.

I was just diagnosed last fall and was put on mestinon – it appears to still be the drug of choice to treat the disease…I check every once in a while for any news on a new drug, but nothing so far. God bless you and your friend and good luck!
