Given the current supply shortage for Mestinon Timespan (180mg), the Myasthenia Alliance Australia has previously notified our MG community that it is available under an alternative arrangement (Section 19A) through Medsurge Healthcare and you use your regular prescription for this. 

We strongly encourage you to get your script for Mestinon Timespan to the pharmacy now and please do not let your own supply of Mestinon Timespan be less than 1 month.  

We recognise that there are ongoing supply issues for some forms of Mestinon (particularly Timespan 180mg and 60mg) in Australia. We appreciate this can be concerning for MG patients who take Mestinon continuously and/or regularly.

A great time to consider this committee position as it is a fully supported supplementary role.  An ideal way to become involved.  Without a Vice President, the MGAQ will be in breach of Association Governance.

Our AGM Guest Speaker will be

Dr Geraldine Moses AM
BPharm DClinPharm AdvPracPharm FPS FACP AACPA MSHP MRPharmS

And the title of Geraldine’s talk will be
“The Seven Things Everyone Should Know About Their Medicines.”

Questions for Geraldine will be received in advance.

Please forward to or call 1800 802 568.
