Stopping long-term mestinon

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I haven't been here in a while, but thought I would ask about people's experiences coming off of mestinon, especially if you've been on it long-term. I've been on it for several years, I was at 60 mg 3x a day, then was on 60 mg 2x a day for a couple of years, and have been on 30 mg 2x a day for the past 8-9 months. I've been having increasing muscle cramping and twitching over the past couple of years, especially in my right leg, and I'm wondering if the mestinon isn't contributing. I also lost a lot of weight, though, over the past few years, becoming clinically underweight, so there may be some muscle wasting, too. But I am interested in trying to go medication-free, and this is my last one. I'd love to hear others' experiences with stopping this drug. Did you do it cold turkey or taper?
