Mytelase (ambenonium chloride) works by preventing the breakdown of a certain natural substance (acetylcholine) in your body. Acetylcholine is needed for normal muscle function.

For the patient with moderately severe myasthenia, from 5 mg to 25 mg of Mytelase three or four times daily is an effective dose. Mytelase may interact with belladonna. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Mytelase should be used only if prescribed. This drug may pass into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
