I discuss Pyridostigmine Pharmacology in this podcast episode in addition to adverse effects, drug interactions, and much more!
Pyridostigmine is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor that can be used for myasthenia gravis or orthostasis.
Pyridostigmine can blunt the effect of neuromuscular blocking agents so patients undergoing surgery should be sure to have a game plan with their surgery team.
Similar to donepezil, pyridostigmine can cause diarrhea and bradycardia.
