If a normal dose was taken at designated time and a Timespan Mestinon taken two hours later, would this be considered an overdose and could it cause death?
25 Mar 2012
I have myasthenia gravis and my doctor prescribed mestinon every 4 hours. I was still having major symptoms that conflicted with being able to move, breathe, and eat. I have been self-medicating myself every two hours and have felt much better! Since mestinon is just a chemical, I don't believe you can "overdose" on it but if you take too much it will possibly make symptoms worse I hope I helped(:
