Is Mestinon The Right Drug For Me?

Sarah Says:

I would like to hear what side effects others have while taking Mestinon. I'm not sure if I was prescribed this medication for the right reason.

I have Myasthenia Gravis and, have been on it since 1999. It helps my muscles through out the day and, also my eyes. I don't know what you are taking it for....Side effects esp. when you just start it is having to go to the bathroom a lot, then it tends to go away after getting adjusted to it. It may make you groggy, it just depends on the person...and, reason taken. I used to live in Concord, California but now live in Clovis, New Mexico and, miss the area Hope to hear from you.

Sincerely, Kathy Lynne Cook

Mestinon contains the active ingredient Pyridostigmine, it is used to reverse the effect of some anesthetics after surgery, and to treat myasthenia gravis.

Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, muscle cramps, and weakness.

How are you both doing on it?
