In the year 2000 my friend suggested me to use Practine and Dexona for gaining weight. I did the same. I found my face is becoming big and people are telling that I am gaining weight. I used it for One month. After three to four months I felt uneazyness in my upper abdomen while sitting. I just took it carelessly. Day by day it increased. In 2004 I visited Doctor, but I was advised to loose weight. But it didn't decrease, rather day by day now in last of 2010 I was bound visit MD and Gastro. In USG the result is Mild Hepatemology. In Endoscopy the result is patchy duodenitis. My question is: Is this due to using Practine and Dexona?

Trying to gain weight artificially is never a good or safe idea.

Practine contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine, most commonly used to treat allergies.

It's usual side effects are: nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision and constipation.

Dexona contains the active ingredient Dexamethasone, which is a type of steroid and could very well be the culprit that has caused your problems.

Steroids can have serious side effects and should never be used without a doctors approval and supervision.

It can cause: nausea, dizziness, weight gain and fluid retention, especially with long-term use.


Have you been honest with your doctor about having used it?

If they don't know, then they can't help you get the proper treatment for your problem.
