cyproheptadine weight gaining

I have been taking this for about 5 months now and I love it. I have always been small, around 105 pounds. I am at 129 now and loving it. It has increased my breast, and my butt and legs. Be careful because it will (the weight) will go to other places like your arms and stomach. Once you first start taking it, my experience is that it will make you SO Sleepy but once your body gets use to it the sleep will wear off. It is prescription and you take 1 pill 3 times a day. ## Hello, Tiffaney! How are you? This medication shouldn't be taken for weight gain, unless your doctor has specifically prescribed it for such use. Additionally, since the weight gain is a side effect, it will also slow down, as your body gets used to the medication and it will not continue, once you stop taking it. ...

Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets - How do they work?

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.

I cant find any info on this pill? Round White Pill A Line On One Side & CTN On The Other Side ## From what I've been able to find, a tablet with just the CTN on one side and a score line on the other is from South Africa and is a medication called Cipla-Actin, it contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine.

Cipritol-4 Uses

What is this pill used for? My wife is taking it and all she does is sleep. Is it for gaining weight or what? ## I'm trying to find something stronger for weight gain, as the Cipritol-4 syrup did not work for me, nor did Apetamin. I need something stronger. ## Cipritol is listed as containing the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is actually an antihistamine that is used to treat and prevent allergic reactions, thus drowsiness is one of its normal side effects. It can also cause weight gain, as a side effect, but that is really not its intended use, and if she is taking it regularly, or taking more than the normal dosage, it will could cause her to sleep a lot. Mikimouse, are you underweight? If so, you should speak to your doctor about a safe way to try to gain weight. Howeve...

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...
