“Weighing the pros and cons of Mestinon” for LEMS
In @lorildunham‘s most recent article “Weighing the pros and cons of Mestinon to treat LEMS”
She talks about some of the side effects Mestinon is known for, including GI upset.
I tried taking mestinon when I was originally diagnosed with LEMS in 2015, and the GI upset symptoms were too severe for me to tolerate. I was never able to take it in combination with Firdapse, so I can’t speak much on it’s effectiveness.
I know many of you also take Mestinon.
Have you found a routine or way around dealing with the GI symptoms it causes?
Lori mentioned taking it on a full stomach helped Grace combat some of the GI upset.
Is there anything else that has helped you cope with the side effects?
