Respected doctors, My uncle who is 37 years old was an addict of alcohol, cigarette smoking and because of that he was facing some memory issue like forgetting things and conversation and other health issues because of smoking. Our family doctor prescribed bupropion 300 mg' to help to quit smoking and piracetam 800 mg plus citicoline 500 mg' to cure the memory issue and after starting these medication in August 27th he has shown great improvement but he has lost some weight so our doctor now prescribes him Cyproheptadine 4 mg twice day to increase appetite and weight gain. Is there any Side effect or negative interaction of taking these medicine together i.e. "Bupropion 300 mg ones a day, Piracetam 800 mg + citicoline 500 mg twice a day and Cyproheptadine 4 mg twice a day"

Dear Pramod, Your uncle is lucky to get improvement with these tablets. Please follow all the tablets as prescribed so as not to lose the benefits. If you have any concerns of drug interaction or side effect, please discuss with your doctor. At the age of 37 years, if your uncle quits smoking and has good memory, it will be useful for his quality of life in future.
