Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Steroids like Wysolone are one of the best and final resort treatment in Myasthenia.The response to such drugs is seen after a lag period of few weeks.

I suggest to continue on the same medication and wait for some time so that their steady concentration is achieved and show effective response.

Do not go for any other medications as the treatment she is on are right and suitable to the severity.

Wish you good health.
