There is no requirements for supplements if you taking proper nutrition. Taking supplements may give you results but is also prone to side effects in long run. So if you are looking for some serous results without damaging your body, contact me directly.

What is the dosage of dexamethasone and cyproheptadine for weight gain in 15 days.

What is the dosage of dexamethasone and cyproheptadine for weight gain in 15 days.
You can try this - 1. 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic). Or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U can eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits (eat whole fruit not juice), a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk, a cheese cube/slice/ banana shake etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. Take simple food like rice n dal in dinner. 7.take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 8. Drink lot of water9. Everyday preferably sleep on same time 10. Maintain active life style. Exercise to gain weight swimming:jogging:lunges and squats:bench press:deadlifts:yoga:pull-ups:upright barbell rows and dumbbell shoulder press lifting weight is important too, so that the additional calories can be used to build muscle instead of just adding fat. 11. Don't smoke. Smokers tend to weigh less than non-smokers, and quitting smoking often leads to weight gain.

Can I use zydus alidac (dexamethasone) and practin for weight gain .my age was 17 years and 6 months.

Can I use zydus alidac (dexamethasone) and practin for weight gain .my age was 17 years and 6 months.
Practin only will increase your appetite but it can also lead you in a state of dizziness and dexamethasone is a steroid which will lead to false weight gain and hence I will suggest you to not take any medicine for weight gain and concentrate on oral food intake.

Dexamaethasone can produce mood disorder, you r right. Discuss this side effect with your doc, and ask for alternative. If this is very much essential for your survival or well being, you need to concurrently consult a psychiatrist and take a mood stabilizer along with it.

Yes they are steroids and yes they have harmful effects.. but in this condition to develop the babies fast enough it might have been prescribed.... My advise is to trust your doctor... but if you have doubts then consult another gynecologist with all your case details...

Hi lybrate-user. The injection will be good for your babies lungs, betamethasone is better, but depending on your gynaecologist, even dexamethasone is also effective. I don't know the details of your pregnancy, but with twins, inj will be more likely to be helpful than harmful. Hope you are not diabetic. All the best.
