Australian Prescriber is a journal and this page is archival. The information was correct at the time of publication in Australian Prescriber but some of it may be out of date now. Please contact the organisation itself for up-to-date information.
The Australian Myasthenic Association in NSW was set up to support sufferers of myasthenia gravis and their carers. It has members from all over Australia and overseas.
The website contains useful information about myasthenia gravis, its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and history. There are links to a range of patient support resources such as newsletters, chat facilities, events, patient experiences and practical lifestyle advice. A membership fee entitles members to receive the association's newsletters and goes towards funding events and other costs.
