Drugs you must avoid in MG
Can you provide a list of medications patients with mysthenia gravis should not/must not take?
This is a difficult question and I would prefer not sending you a laundry list a medications that must not be used.
Every medication has particular risks and benefits (whether or not a patient has MG) and your physician should balance the pros and cons given the particular clinical situation.
