|Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3||Drug: Pyridostigmine Bromide||Phase 2|
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is the second neuromuscular disease meet in children. SMA is a genetically transmitted disease inducing muscular weakness predominating on shoulders and hips. Currently, there is no effective therapy to slow the progression of the disease. SMA is due to a neuron motor attempt of the spinal cord and recently it has been demonstrated a neuromuscular junction (NMJ) involvement, according to recent studies.
EMOTAS study aim to understand if NMJ abnormalities could have an impact on motor performance and fatigue in SMA type 3 ambulatory patients by electromyogram and to improve by non-invasive therapy quality of life of patients.

Experimental: significant decrement
Patients with significant decrement at electromyogram will be treated by pyridostigmine bromide 60mg 3 times a day for patients older than 18 and 1.5mg/kg 3 times a day for children less than 40kg
Drug: Pyridostigmine Bromide
Other Name: Mestinon
No Intervention: no decrement
Patient without significant decrement will not receive any treatment and will be the control group
- Change from Baseline in the distance walked at 6-minute walk test at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
- Change from baseline of decrement at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
- Change from baseline of MFM-D1 [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Comparison of treated and control group values will be made
- Change from baseline of Moviplate values at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Comparison between treated and control group value will be made
- Change from baseline of the ratio at 6 minutes walk test at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]It's the ratio between the number of meters during the last minute of the 6-minute walk test and the first minute of the 6-minute walk test.
