Asked for female, 24 years old from Delhi
Hye. Thanks for the query.
Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid indicated for allergic states, dermatologic diseases, endocrine disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, hematologic disorders, neoplastic diseases, nervous system, ophthalmic diseases, renal diseases, respiratory diseases, and rheumatic disorders. Practin is an antihistamine.
These are prescription drugs and yes, one of the side effects is weight gain, but it's not muscle weight - it's fat accumulation which will drop once the medication is discontinued, leaving behind accumulation of bad fats.
Side effects include vision changes, swelling, rapid weight gain, sleep problems (insomnia), mood changes, acne, dry skin, thinning skin, bruising or discoloration, slow wound healing, increased sweating, headache, dizziness, spinning sensation, nausea, stomach pain, bloating, muscle weakness, or changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your arms, legs, face, neck, breasts, and waist).
There are many safer ways to gain weight. This is not one of them.
