Medical Overview
Introduction
Pyrostig is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of myasthenia gravis (a disease causing muscle weakness and tiredness), paralytic ileus (paralysis of intestinal muscles), post-operative urinary retention and reversal of effect of skeletal muscle relaxants after surgery. Pyrostig works by reducing and improving muscle weakness. It should be taken on an empty stomach, preferably at the same time each day. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. If you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment. You should never stop this medicine suddenly without talking to your doctor. Some common side effects of using this medication are nausea, excessive salivation, diarrhea, blurred vision, shortness of breath, watery eyes, abdominal pain and altered frequency of urination. Some other side effects that may be seen with it include sweating, headache, runny nose, and heartburn. It may also cause dizziness and sleepiness. So, avoid doing any such work that requires focus and attention, such as driving or operating any machinery. Before taking Pyrostig, it is better to inform your doctor if you are suffering from any kidney problems, Parkinson's disease, asthma, or stomach disorders. Your blood pressure may decrease after taking this medicine, so it is better to monitor it and consult your doctor if it bothers you. This medicine may cause diarrhea, so drink plenty of fluids to keep yourself hydrated while taking this medicine. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or breastfeeding, before taking this medicine.
