Question Treatment of Myasthenia Crisis

Hi all:

UW says no matter myasthenia crisis or cholinergic crisis, we should all withdrawl anticholinesterases, i can understand this content in case of cholinergic crisis, but i cannot understand why we need to withdrawl anticholinesterases if today we are giving too little drugs, which means myasthenia crisis.

Thank you!
