Answer: 
dear niklesh rao, Myasthenia gravis is defined as a neuromuscular disease which results in weakness and fatigue of skelatal muscle. It is an autoimmune disorder caused due to deficiency of acetylcholine receptor at post junctional end plate. Anti-cholinesterase drugs are given for the treatment of Myasthenia gravis like- Neostigmine, IV Pyridostigmine and ambenonium. ref- R.D.
