More good news about Mestinon supply improving for both 60mg and 180mg! The Mestinon supply shortage has been an evolving issue over the last few months and the MAA has been actively monitoring the situation and speaking with government and industry stakeholders to ensure we can access this important medication. We thank you for contacting us and your state associations with your feedback and we appreciate this has been concerning and sometimes frustrating. Please see the latest update below.  

Good news for the new year! The latest indication from iNova and via the TGA website is that the Mestinon 60mg supply shortage has been resolved sooner than expected.  

As per previous communications, the Myasthenia community are aware of the efforts being made by the MAA to bring about a re-established supply of Pyridostigmine/Mestinon medication for Australians. To further conversations with Industry and Government the MAA is looking for data about the amount of medications we require on a weekly basis.
