In brief: Comments

Mestinon (pyridostigmine) is a good starter drug, as it can specifically benefit the neuromuscular junctional issues chemically, but may not be the best long-term solution.
A thymectomy, and steroids are other alternatives to deal with the process, but you might find additional support from a neurologist who specializes in muscle disease.
