Warning

    Military Use for Soman Poisoning Prophylaxis
  • Use of pyridostigmine alone is not protective against soman effects. Efficacy depends on rapid use of nerve agent antidotes (i.e., atropine and pralidoxime) following nerve agent exposure.

  • Protective garments (e.g., masks, hoods, overgarments) specifically designed for protection from chemical nerve agents are the primary means of protection against nerve agent exposure; do not rely solely on pretreatment with pyridostigmine, atropine, and pralidoxime to provide complete protection.

  • Do not administer pyridostigmine after soman exposure. Discontinue at first sign of nerve agent poisoning; may exacerbate effects of a sublethal exposure.

    Experience of Health Care Personnel
  • Pyridostigmine should be administered by IV injection only by adequately trained individuals familiar with the drug’s actions, characteristics, and risks.

Diarrhea, abdominal pain or cramps, dysmenorrhea, increased flatus, nausea, urinary urgency and frequency.
