Taking Cipla Actin with Ulcers

Good day. I would like to ask if it's safe to use cipla actin while I have stomach ulcers? Thank you ## This medication contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, it is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat, or prevent allergy symptoms. According to the FDA, it may cause stomach irritation, and nausea, as side effects, along with dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes, so it would best to check with your doctor, before taking it, to be sure it is safe for you.

Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets - How do they work?

So far, I've experienced zero improvement after taking these tablets. How do Apetito tablets work and for how long should they be taken in order to start noticing changes? ## How Do Apetito (Cyproheptadine) Tablets Work? According to MedlinePlus, Cyproheptadine is in a class of medications called antihistamines and works by blocking the action of histamine; a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms.

side effects of apetito

I used the appetito tablets for a week and now my left breast is experiencing watery discharge....Do these tablets cause hormonal imbalance? I'm really worried as I'm already one week late for my periods... ## Same thing is happening to me. My left breast is becoming big and painful... If I wear a bra, all of it will be in pain. ## Hello Ruey, According to the National Institute of Health Apetito contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine which is an antihistamine with additional anticholinergic, antiserotonergic, and local anesthetic properties.

Ciplactin And Dexona

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...

What does cipla actin treat

Cipla actin is used to treat different disease - so what are these diseases? It is not written on the instruction papers that it can help with weight gain. ## This medication is listed as containing the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine that is used to treat seasonal allergies, such as hay fever, as reported by the NIH. The weight gain is a side effect from long-term use, but it is generally not permanent and one will usually lose the weight, once they stop taking it. It tends to make people have more of an appetite, but as I said, that is not a permanent thing. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi. I want to know if I will receive beautiful glowing skin and a nice complexion when i use cipla action tablets, cuz I have black spots from mosquito bites o...

Apetito tablets - What do they do?

It is not safe to try to use them just to gain weight, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so. Just like any other medication, it carries the risk of side effects and adverse reactions.

Apetito tablets can be used by man

Can a man use apetito and if so, what are the side effects? ## For what reason is this supplement used? ## Can apetito be used by man if they want to gain weight? ## Appetite-increasing medications such as Appetito (cyproheptadine) are not gender oriented and can be taken by a man or woman. Please note however that cyproheptadine is an antihistamine used primarily for allergy relief and weight gain/appetite increases are merely a possible side effect; therefore this should not be relied upon as a sole means of gaining weight. Only a proper dietary regimen, adjusting one's eating habits and/or weight training are effective long-term solutions for healthy weight management. I would encourage others who may be seeking to use cyproheptadine to also consult a qualified nutritionist who c...

Can i take cipla actin while breast feeding?

I am a breastfeeding mom to a 16months baby. I want to gain weight, is it suitable for me to take cipla action? ## Im breastfeeding to a 3month old baby can i use cipla active pills, wont they course anything bad? ## Breast feeding a 1 month baby can i use cipla actin weight gain ## I would encourage patients to consult with their doctor before taking any sort of medication or supplement while pregnant or breastfeeding. If you just want to play it safe though, it may be a good idea to wait until your child is old enough to stop breastfeeding... That way they aren't directly affected by what you put in your body. But only you and/or your doctor can weigh out the risks vs benefits and decide from there what the best course of action might be. Wishing you all good health and a happy ba...

Cyproheptadine For Weight Gain

Is Periactin safe to increase weight? Is that effect permanent weight gain or only as long as i take it? ## Periactin, which contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine, normally used to treat allergies. And, just like any medication, it does have risks and side effects, so no, just using it in attempt to gain weight is not considered safe. It can cause an increased appetite in some people, which sometimes causes them to gain some weight, however, it is usually not significant and the effects don't continue, when someone stops the medication. In addition, any method of gaining weight artificially, that doesn't involve a healthy diet and exercise can have severe detrimental effects on your health. Are there any other questions? ## Thanks for the info Verwon....

Jamaican Peritol (Cyproheptadine) Pills

What kind of appetite pill can I take without getting a UTI? When I take the jamaican peritol pills I get a UTI. ## How long can it take to notice changes in weight while taking Peritol (cyproheptadine)? And how many are you supposed to take? I just want enough info. ## Hello Molly, Unfortunately there is a strong association between weight loss pills and urinary track infections. The reason for this is two pronged, the first being that the diet pills that decrease appetite also decreases your desire to drink. This often leads to dehydration and less frequent urination which means that the bacteria is not being flushed out frequently enough. This can ultimately lead to a UTI. The second factor at play is that most weight loss pills contain caffeine which can cause more frequent urinatio...
