Neostigmine Methylsulfate Injection, USP is indicated for:

- the symptomatic control of myasthenia gravis when oral therapy is impractical.

(In most people, myasthenia gravis can be controlled. Several different therapies are available to help reduce and improve the symptom of muscle weakness. Most people will have good results with treatment.

According to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, up to 20% of people will have complete remission (a period of time without symptoms) without any myasthenia gravis treatment, and another 20% may improve completely without treatment. These spontaneous improvements are more likely to occur during early stages of the disease.)

- the prevention and treatment of postoperative distention and urinary retention after mechanical obstruction has been excluded.

- reversal of effects of non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents (e.g., tubocurarine, metocurine, gallamine or pancuronium) after surgery.

For more details, please speak to a doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, hope the info helps?
