Working / Worked
I started Mestinon really slow and didnt realize it was working until I noticed I never fell anymore. But I got up to a higher dose and now the difference is unmistakable. I get overall fatigue and pain but I dont get weak anymore nearly as often and I can do things I long since stopped being able to do.

I have been using mestinon for years. I have alot of GI problems with it, and i'm taken more than ever before.

Worked amazingly well to begin with but started to be less effective after a couple of months. Now that the steroids have the MG mostly under control I've stopped taking Mestinon completely! :) Hopefully I won't be needing it again for awhile...

60mg q4
Working / Worked
I take Midodrine (30 mg/day, morning, noon, and evening) for the "pure" autonomic failure and Mestinon (360 mg/day, morning, noon, and night). I was told that the Mestinon also compliments the Midodrine. They work in the sense that I get about three to five hours of being functional with each dose. It takes 15 to 30 minutes to take effect, especially in the morning. Side effects of the Mestinon are that my digestive system is sensitive and often loose, but varies in both directions.
