Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets, how do they work
44 Replies RSS
No improvement after taking this tablets, how should i take them to see changes on me? ## Cyproheptadine is actually an antihistamine, which is commonly used to treat allergic reactions. It can cause some increased appetite, as a side effect, but it is really not safe to use, without a doctors approval and supervision, because it is a drug and does carry risks. Have you consulted a doctor? ## I would like to share my experience with the Apetito tablets. In 2006 l started loosing weight and had skin rashes.I became the shadow of myself both home and office.My face turned black and l was depressed.No matter how beautiful clothes l wore they just could not fit.People started ignoring me even at work.A friend of mine introduced me to Apetito tablets.I was desperate and wanted anything that ...

Does Dexona and Practin Tabs Increase weight...? Will i have any problems in future....? ## Please I recommend not to use practin and dexona....for weight gain... i used them for 2 mnths for weight gain...i gained 12 kgs in 2 months but after leaving those tablets..i had jaundice..and had anrexia and nausea ...and had no appetite..i lost all 12 kgs in only 15-20 days...but the symptoms continued..i had a doctor checkup ..he told me that it will take 8-12 months to recover.. However u can use only practin.... ## I have to agree, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, it isn't safe to try to use these medications just to gain weight. Like any drug, they carry the risk of causing other severe side effects, just like Nayan has stated. Practin contains the active ingredient Cypr...

Cyproheptadine usage for 4.5 year old child
1 Reply RSS
Our 4.5 year old granddaughter is visiting and she came with Cyproheptadine 2MG/5ML Syrup. She has nightmares and anxiety at bed time. Takes a 10ML dose every night. Is this okay? It is a prescription by a doctor. ## If her doctor has prescribed it, it should be given as instructed. It is an antihistamine that is used to treat allergic reactions, as well as anxiety and insomnia, due to its sedative like effects. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. How is she doing on it?

Ciplactin And Dexona
18 Replies RSS
Sir i take these 2 tablets since 3 year. Now i stop to take this. So please tell me what is the side effect of it. ## Withdrawal symptoms are probably going to be very different for everyone, so I can only speak based on gathered research: There have been reported cases of psychotic syndrome after withdrawal of Cyproheptadine (Ciplactin), so I would suggest tapering off this one as opposed to just stopping it completely after all those years. I would also strongly recommend taking your time tapering off of Dexamethasone (Dexona) or you could have some very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. I don't know the specific details of what one might come to expect, but I'd imagine it to be similar to the list of side effects for each medication. Learn More: Dexamethasone Details Cyprohepta...

Cipla actin and HIV

Hi, I'm 24yrs old and my weight is 40kgs. I am not yet on ARVs but I'm HIV positive. I previously weighed 50kgs and I would like to get back to my weight. Is Cipla actin safe for me? ## I'm glad u asked that question because I've also been asking it at the clinic I take my arvs from but was advised to tell the pharmacist that I'm HIV + before buying anything over the counter....I hope someone out there will have the answers we are looking for. I desperately need to gain my appetite back & my weight. ## Before combining any two or more substances, I think it's always best to contact your prescribing doctor first just to be on the safe side.
