How crowded is your medicine chest? With myasthenia gravis, you might have drugs that dampen the immune system next to those that manage side effects. How do these medications interact with your over-the-counter drugs for headaches or an upset stomach? What about vaccines, or anesthesia at the dentist? Throw in a second illness like diabetes or heart disease, and you might need your own warning label. 

Join us for Conquer MG’s Fall Patient Meeting, where Mitra Habibi, PharmD, will explain how common medications interact with MG treatments, “black box warnings,” and steps you can take to improve the safety and effectiveness of your medical care.  

This event is free to all and includes lunch.  A donation of $25 per person (or amount of your choice) would be appreciated to offset the cost of meal, facility and video recording expenses.
