tummy hurts when taken without food. body is becoming resisted after 6 yrs on it. 120mg - 4x a day

Seems to work fine, side effects when dosage is increased until the body adjusts.

It helps with muscle fatigue, but not with double vision. Side effects have been mainly gastro-intestinal issues, such as stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea. I have been taking Mestinon Timespan 180 mg. twice a day for the past three years. My symptoms are now on the rise so I am considering adding Presnisone.
