In Treatment of Myasthenia gravis

Myasthenia gravis is a neuromuscular disorder that leads to weakness of muscles that are under our control, such as those of the eyes, face, and swallowing. It can result in double vision, drooping eyelids, trouble talking, and trouble walking. It happens due to impaired coordination between muscles and nerves. Distinon Tablet makes this coordination between nerves and muscles better and relieves the symptoms. As a result, your muscle strength is improved and you are able to lead a better life.



Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them
