A member asked:

I have fibro, bipolar 2, ibs, a tremor, a stigmatism, osteoarthritis, joint separation, flat feet. the rheumatologist put me on mestinon to increase my hgh after exercise. should i take it? i am also on lithium fluoxetine wellbutrin and dopaquel.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Mestinon: I would consult a pharmacist before taking mestinon in view of the polypharmacy involved in your treatment. Prolonged use of mestinon has neuromuscular effects. I also would like to learn about any effects on bipolar disorder as well as possible interactions with lithium,etc. I would expect that neurologists would have much more experience with mestinon than rheumatologists do.
