Hello,

Thanks for the query

Drugs that are to be avoided are beta blocker(metoprool) used for high blood pressure and cardiac problem in patients with myasthenia also calcium channal blocker like (amlodipine)

Prednisolone can worsen diabetes. In diabetic medications that can be used are immunoglobulin in emergency and mycophenolate for long term

Avoid prednisolone as it can cause the listed side effects and can affect the vision

Please let me know if you have any other questions in this issue.
