Hi my son is 14 years old. He's into sports but he doesn't gain weight at all. He'll have an appetite here and there and he doesn't get much sleep. Can he take cyproheptadine to help him eat more to gain a lil weight and to get more rest?

Hello, Locks! How are you?

At that age, it would be best not to give him anything, unless his doctor approves. Giving him the wrong thing could have serious consequences.

As listed by the FDA, the weight gain caused by Cyproheptadine is also just a temporary side effect, it will eventually wear off and go away entirely, especially when someone stops taking it.

It sounds like his doctor needs to evaluate him, anyway, to see what's causing these issues.

When was his last physical?
