Made Cheapest Medicine for MG Patients in Pakistan: Mestinon (Pyrodistigmine) is international brand drug for MG patients and its cost in Pakistan was demanded in 1998 US$ 5.0 per pack of 20 tab. which is very expensive and our patients cannot afford this cost. PMWO made extensive efforts to manufacturing of generic local medicine (substitute of Mestinon). You will happy to know we have manufactured this drug in Pakistan which is available in market on Rs.52/= for 20 Tablets approximately 0.50 US$. And PMWO's Myasthenic Drug bank is our project, which provides this drug free of cost to poor patients. My organization has provided this drug as donation to MG Patients in Bangladesh, India, Morocco and Kenya. PMWO solved medicines problem permanently and world's cheapest medicine made in Pakistan for MG patients.
