apetito pills

I GAIN WEIGHT THEN I WANT STOP TALKING APETITO IT IS POSSIBLE ## Hello Jabu, Apetito contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat allergic reactions but has been prescribed in some cases as a weight gain medication. I do strongly suggest that you do not start taking this medication for that purpose without getting a doctors approval first as that is not the intended use of the medication. It's better to be safe and get the doctors approval than to have something go wrong and end up in the ER.

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....

G E Cyproheptadine 4mg

I have been off and on the medication since 2001. The only time I get off of it because I gain so much weight.. But as soon as I get of the meds, I loose weight and fast.. Really my Dr placed me on this med because I had a poor eating habit (maybe one meal a day).. But now I am back on the pill bc I have lost to much weight in my book... I went from 115 lbs in 2001 to 135.. Don't get me wrong I love the weight gain. I also suffer from migraines and so far this pill has yet to help with that.. Good luck everyone, hope this helped.... ## Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine, used to treat various medical issues, including stimulating the appetite. The prevention of migraines, however, has only been proven to work for children and adolescents. However, it really sounds like once you stop...
