Mytelase review

Mytelase is also known as Ambenonium and has the chemical name of ambenonium dichloride. It is a cholinesterase inhibitor used to treat myasthenia gravis. Myasthenia gravis (muscle disease) happens when the body creates antibodies against acetylcholine receptors, which hampers signal transmission across the myoneural junction.

This medication is recommended for those patients suffering from muscle weakness due to muscle disease (myasthenia gravis). Mytelase is classified as a reversible drug that works against myasthenia gravis by aggressive reversible hampering of acetylcholinesterase (the enzyme needed to make the hydrolysis of acetylcholine possible).

By reversibly binding and deactivating acetylcholinesterase, Mytelase effectively boosts the acetylcholine levels in the body and, in turn, aids the delivery of impulses across the myoneural junction, which effectively treats the condition.

Dosage is based on the patient’s response to the treatment and their medical condition. The recommended dose for Mytelase is 40 milligrams once daily; however, some patients may require up to 50 to 75 milligrams every day depending on their condition. Mytelase is taken orally as prescribed by your doctor. The incorrect use of this medicine can lead to severe side effects.

You must not exceed the dosage without prior medical instruction. You should also learn all the directions for proper use of this medication, including how to alter your dosage when directed by your doctor to do so. Consult with your doctor if you require additional information.

The most common side effect of Mytelase is nausea. If you become nauseated and it worsens or persists, consult your doctor immediately. You should also tell your doctor if you have any of these symptoms: eye changes ranging from pinpoint pupils to increased tears, urinary urgency, increased sweating, increased saliva production, stomach pain, diarrhea, or headache.

Seek medical attention immediately if you develop any of these rare but grave side effects: dizziness, muscle weakness, muscle cramps or spasms, vision changes, swallowing difficulties, breathing difficulties, or an unusually slow pulse. Seek emergency medical attention if you develop any of these very unlikely but serious side effects: mental or mood changes, seizures, loss of coordination, or chest pain. Additionally, if you develop any symptoms not listed above, consult your doctor immediately.

Consult with your doctor regarding your medical history, particularly if you have or have had any allergies, urinary problems like ureter or bladder obstruction; thyroid problems like the hyperthyroid condition; heart problems like bradycardia, arrythmia, and coronary occlusion; stomach or intestinal problems like ulcers, stomach or intestinal obstruction, and megacolon; nerve problems like vagotonia; seizures; and lung problems like asthma.

Report to your doctor all nonprescription and prescription medications you are using or have used in the recent past. Of particular interest are drugs like magnesium supplements, muscle relaxants like baclofen, cholinergic drugs like bethanecol, heart rhythm drugs like quinidine, local or general anesthetics like lidocaine, aminoglycoside antibiotics like neomycin, atropine, and mecamylamine. You must not start or stop any medication without prior doctor approval.

You should not take this drug if you have allergies to any of the ingredients found in Mytelase, if you have blockage in your stomach/intestine/bladder, or if you are taking atropine, belladonna, quinine, cholinergic agents like guanidine, and ganglionic blocking agents like mecamylamine. Consult your doctor if any of these apply to you.

It is currently unknown whether or not this drug passes into breast milk, so you must seek medical advice before proceeding to nurse your baby while under Mytelase therapy. Finally, expecting mothers should only take Mytelase when necessary. Consult your doctor and discuss with them the pros and cons of using Mytelase while pregnant.
