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...

Can cyproheptadine be taken for three years?

When I take cyproheptadine for weight gain, I end up losing weight after I stop it. Does that mean I have to be using it forever? ## The weight gain is just a side effect, according to NIH reports, so yes, you will lost the weight, once you stop taking it. Other side effects are listed as possibly including dry mouth, and dizziness. What is your current height and weight? Are you on any other medications? Have you contacted your doctor about safe ways to gain weight?

Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets, how do they work
48 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 ...

taking Practin And Dexona is good or bad...
64 Replies RSS
My friend told me taking 1 Practin and 1 Dexona everyday will make my body stronger and I will be more muscular. He told me about dizziness side effect. I really want to know the truth.... does it really make me stronger or will give me some problems in future...please reply soon.. ## Practin contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, you can learn more about it and the side effects here: Dexina contains the active ingredient Dexamethasone, which is a steroid and very risky: There are a lot more possible side effects, other than just dizziness. They will not do what you want them to do and they should never be used without a doctor's approval and supervision. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Thank you... A message for people who wants to achieve muscular body. "...

Ciplactin And Dexona
21 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...
