June is International Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month.
June Awareness month for Myasthenia Gravis is worldwide and MGAQ has organised through local
Councils and private organisations to “Light Up” landmarks in recognition of Myasthenia. Please go

will help you with your myasthenia journey.

More good news about Mestinon supply improving for both 60mg and 180mg! The Mestinon supply shortage has been an evolving issue over the last few months and the MAA has been actively monitoring the situation and speaking with government and industry stakeholders to ensure we can access this important medication. We thank you for contacting us and your state associations with your feedback and we appreciate this has been concerning and sometimes frustrating. Please see the latest update below.
Good news for the new year! The latest indication from iNova and via the TGA website is that the Mestinon 60mg supply shortage has been resolved sooner than expected.
