Abstract

  Myasthenia gravis is a long-term neuromuscular disease that leads to varying degrees of skeletal weakness. The most affected muscles are those of the face and eyes which results in drooping eyelids, double vision, trouble walking and trouble talking. Those affected often develop a thymoma. Some of the drugs used in the treatment are Pyridostigmine, Azathioprine, Mycophenolate mofetil, Neostigmine, Ephedrine. A brief review of the analytical methods developed for the estimation of these drugs was discussed in the present study.

Keywords: Myasthenia Gravis; Azathioprine; Mycophenolate Mofetil
