Hello dear Lybrate user,
Warm welcome to Lybrate.com
I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* Dexamethasone is a steroid which will work as heroin or cocaine in your sex drive, after use of it you will be dependent upon it, so not recommended at all.* Cyproheptidine can be taken but it is not the absolute medication for this issue. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.
This medicine have more than one use and first you should specify for what reason are you giving..
Second thing it is very dangerous to give any medication without doctor's prescription as you might not be aware of the side effects...
If you are trying to save doctor consultation charges then you may have to loose more than that...
So better consult and take proper treatment..

Hi lybrate-user never take suppements here are 6 ways to gain weight healthily:
1. Eating 5 to 6 meals a day
in order to gain weight, start eating 5-6 meals a day by breaking them into parts. Eating a lot at once may cause indigestion if the body fails to absorb all nutrients. Eat in small amounts, even if you are not hungry and there will be an increase in appetite from day to day. The aim should be to have a generously portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as two to three snacks in between.
2. Start weight training
if you build your muscles through weight training, it will convert the extra weight into lean body mass and also stimulate your appetite. The extra muscle increases the rate of metabolism. When you start exercising you will often experience extreme muscle soreness but it goes away in 3-5 days.
3. Load up on protein
besides weight training, a protein-rich diet can help you gain mass. Eating a meal heavy in protein shortly after finishing exercise can be highly effective in adding extra pounds to your body. However, a diet focused only on lean protein is not helpful. It is important to make sure that your diet has plenty of fat in it. Eat foods rich in protein like cheese, meat, eggs, etc to gain weight in a healthy manner.
4. Workout your entire body
a lot of people focus only on training the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Firstly, it will give you a disproportionate body; and it will make you prone to injuries. Therefore, it's important to work out the entire body for a complete and balanced look.
5. Drink your calories
to reach the calorie requirement only by eating may be tough. Drinking milk, milkshakes or protein shakes with little or no sugar can be an effective way to load up on the calorie requirements.
6. Be patient and believe in yourself
gaining weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Every body type is different and it takes months to gain weight. Living healthy by eating the right diet will increase your strength. It is also important to keep following the routine even if you don't see any gains.
Caution: junk food and fried foods must be avoided; although have a tendency to add more fat to your body but are very low in vitamins and minerals which are essentially required to keep you really fit.
