I have generalized MG with extreme fatigue , I have been taking 60mg every 4 hours since 2003. It has allowed me to continue working as a GM but I still require rest by end of week lots of rest.

This medication is supposed to strengthen muscles. I have not noticed any change. If I don't take it with food I get severe stomach cramps, sweat, can't breathe, can't talk, can't swallow.

I was diagnosed with Ocular MG 6 months ago and have taken this medication for the past 4 months. It has improved the drooping eylid and cleared my vision but the side effeccts include fatigue, nausea, some problems swallowing and muscle weakness in the neck and shoulders. I take 60mg twice a day but expect my medication to be adjusted for better relief during waking hours.

Only found a year ago when I had serious respiratory problem. Had all the symptoms in the hospital, but thought it was the antibiotics! It took a while to work up to the full dose, but no longer have the double vision, shakiness,or difficulty swallowing. I am getting stronger every day, and am thankful that I didn't get it earlier in life. I still get very tired and have no second wind.

Stopped double vision. Arm muscles get tired quickly. Eye lids droop,sometimes severely. Leg muscles also tire, especially goring up steps.
