How Neomine 0.5mg Injection works:
Ostig relieves the symptoms of myasthenia gravis but does not cure it. It does so by reducing and improving muscle weakness. The length of time for which you need to take Ostig will depend on your condition. Do not stop taking Ostig until and unless advised by your doctor, even if you start feeling better.
Q. How long does Ostig take to start working?
Ostig takes about 5 to 15 minutes to start working and remains effective for 2-4 hours.
Q. Is Ostig a steroid?
No, Ostig is not a steroid. It belongs to cholinesterase inhibitor group of medicines. Ostig work by preventing the breakdown of a chemical called acetylcholine.
Q. Does it cause weight gain?

Q. Is Ostig safe to use?
Yes, Ostig is safe if used in the dose and duration prescribed by the doctor.
Q. I felt better when I started taking Ostig but I have noticed recently that I get tired easily and quickly. Will increasing the dose help me?
If your symptoms have started reappearing, then it could be due to increased severity of myasthenia gravis or excess dose of Ostig. Both the conditions have similar effects, so it becomes very difficult to differentiate between the two. Do not increase the dose on your own and consult your doctor immediately.
Q. Can I take Ostig for constipation?
No, Ostig should not be taken for any type of constipation. However, its use is limited to cases of constipation caused by paralysis of intestine and strictly on prescription by the doctor.

Q. Who should not take Ostig?
Ostig should not be taken by patients who are allergic to it. Patients who are constipated or cannot urinate should avoid its use, unless advised by the doctor. This is because Ostig is only used for certain types of urination problems and constipation (e.g. caused by paralysis of intestine).
