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.

Hi. As you have mentioned that there is so associated weight loss with pain abdomen. So you need to be evaluated in detail esp for weight loss if that is significant. The medicines you r taking may be giving symptomatic relief but undergo proper gastro consultation and investigation.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details, in which there is no mention of how is your blood glucose controlled. Sometimes if blood glucose is not wll controlled, there is a chance of loosing weight and developing signs of general weakness. The medicine mentioned (cyproheptadine) is actually an antihistamine. Appetite stumlation is a side-effect of that drug. It is not supposed to be taken for that at all. Plus it will produce fair amount of drowsiness. Thanks.

Your medicines do contain steroid inside it and the steroids will be devastating for you. I advise you to eat good foods without steroid medication. You need an extra 500 calories a day if you want to put on extra weight in a week. - protein is the key for muscle building; it will help you gain muscle weight rather than fat mass. Good sources of protein are red meat and poultry, eggs, whole grains. Salmon is high in calories and healthy fats. Best healthy foods to gain weight fast homemade protein smoothies. Drinking homemade protein smoothies can be a highly nutritious and quick way to gain weight. Milk. Milk has been used as a weight gainer or muscle builder for decades (1 )..rice. Nuts and nut butters. Red meats. Potatoes and starches. Salmon and oily fish. Protein supplements.

Hi Sir, May I know about that my wife as continue the medicine for pregnancy, meanwhile she may use cypon syrup.
Hello. Cypon syrup contains cyproheptadine which is an antihistaminic and tricholine citrate which is an appetite stimulant. This drug may have adverse effects like sudden weight gain, dizziness, nausea and abdominal cramps, therefore it is better to be avoided in pregnancy. Also its safety profile in pregnancy is not clearly established.
