For Myasthenia Gravis: “I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis ten years ago. Apart from the usual prednisolone and Mestinon I was eventually prescribed azathioprine, which I had to stop almost immediately because of liver reactions, and then methotrexate up to the highest recommended dosage.. However, after 6 years this appeared to have no effect in reducing the use of prednisolone, which had increased to a daily dosage of 40-50mg daily, causing severe eye problems in the form of glaucoma and cataracts, and at the beginning of 2016 my neurologist consultant put me onto Cellcept. One year later I am now down to just 5mg prednisolone daily (continuing to reduce) have stopped Mestinon completely and am feeling much improved.”
