A type of drug used to diagnose myasthenia gravis (MG), a neuromuscular disease that causes skeletal muscle weakness. Tensilon helps stop the breakdown of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle stimulation. It is considered an effective drug as it helps to distinguish between MG and other similar nervous system disorders.
