I have been taking Mosegor to gain weight. I havwe also realised that though am gaining water my stomach is also becoming quite big. Scondly I want to know if there is any side effect associated for taking mosegor. Thank you. ## I want to know more about mosegor and please bear with me. ## Mosegor, from what I can find out online, is a multivitamin supplement, thus it is not really proven to help you gain weight, though some doctors and users do swear by it. Has anyone shown any results from using this? ## It did work for my brother. He gained weight. ## I am taking mosegor as a cure to my on set insomnia. The side effects occurs during the day,drowsiness in the office and yes my appetite increased. I don't think that it is curing my onset insomnia. Maybe anybody of you out there kn...

I have taken Perry Active in the past and I have to gain 25lbs in the next month. Will these pills help? ## The correct medication name is Periactin, it contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat allergic reactions. It is not approved, nor recommended to be used just for the purpose of gaining weight. In addition, I am not sure it can be obtained and it does require a doctor's prescription. Have you tried consulting a doctor about healthy and safe ways to gain weight? ## Hi. I'm a 27 yr old female. I just wanted to be able to gain weight cause my weight is only 45kg.

I am 20 years old with a skiny body and i need to be at normal body shape. i have tried to eat much but our common food that we eat in ethiopia is only fool of iron,so it didnt help me. so now i need a drug(medicine) that helps me to become normal fat. ## There really isn't any safe medication to use for this, they carry the risks of causing dangerous side effects and are usually only effective as long as you continue to take them. Since you don't have access to a lot of good foods, have you thought of trying a good multivitamin? That may help, since it can supply you with nutrients that you may be deficient in.

A friend told me about weight gain pills. I would like to know more about Perry active. ## Hello, Tisha! How are you? The medication is actually called Periactin and it contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which is an antihistamine. It is actually not used for weight gain, though that can be a side effect of this medication. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I'm really trying to gain weight I have a problem with holding my weight

under weight and heard that the pery active pill helps gain weight and keeps it on ## The correct name of the medication is Periactin, it containd the active ingredient Cyprheptadine. It is commonly used to treat allergic reactions and it can stimulate the appetite. Common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and blurred vision. Read more here: As to whether or not you will actually gain weight or keep it on, I cannot say. This medication has not actually been researched and approved for that purpose.

i i am 21 years old but i very slim thin i want to fat so please tell me name of the medicine.please tell me. ## Hello, Periactin (cyproheptadine) is a prescription medicine that is sometimes given to people who need to gain weight. Cyproheptadine, the main ingredient in Periactin, is actually an antihistamine used to relieve allergy symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, itching eyes/nose, sneezing, hives, and itching. I'm not sure if it's available where you live, so I recommend asking your local pharmacy! In order to gain weight in a healthy manner or without medication, I would suggest portioning out your meals every 2-3 hours (right around 6 meals per day). These meals should include natural nutrient dense foods with little to no empty calories, so you can get the most o...

Where can I find peractin pills and how much do the pills cost? ## Because Periactin (Cyproheptadine) is a prescription medication, you're probably going to have to make an appointment with a local doctor in order to see about getting it prescribed. However I do question how an antihistamine for allergies is going to help with weight gain? As far as pricing is concerned, some sources suggest that you may end up paying anywhere from $15-$30 for a 30 day script of the 4mg tabs. There also happen to be plenty of coupons out there (including one on this site) that can help cut down the cost for you if that's a problem. Please post back if there's anything else I can help with. I wish you the best of luck in reaching your goals! ## My name is Ann you will have to get a prescripti...

Plz can anybody tell me if I can use periactin for increasing my body weight, also to particularly gain mass on my face? I was suffering from a kidney stone and sometimes I feel a little pain on both of my sides. Plz reply to me. Is periactin safe for me? ## Periactin contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, it is an antihistamine. And yes, it can help stimulate someone's appetite, but if you do put on weight, there is no way to target it to your face or any other body part. It is really not safe to just randomly use a medication to try to gain weight, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so. If you have kidney stones, you also need to be careful, because some medications can make them worse. Your best bet to try and gain weight is by eating a healthy diet ...

My 79 year old mom was prescribed periactin for weight gain. I was wondering if it's habit forming? She's afraid to take it. ## Hello, Michelle! How is your mom doing? No, it is actually an antihistamine that can cause weight gain as a side effect, as reported by the FDA. She may also experience dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. Is she on any other medications?

How can I get some Periactin to help me gain weight? ## i need sum help to gain weight ## @Erica (original poster), Periactin (Cyproheptadine) is listed as an antihistamine indicated for allergies. And although one side effect of Periactin is a "stimulated appetite", side effects are mere 'possibilities' that don't happen to everyone... so I'm really curious as to why you would think to use an allergy medication to help gain weight instead of more conventional methods such as monitoring the amount of calories you eat throughout the day? Perhaps contacting a registered dietician or nutritionist may be a wise decision if you need help reaching specific goals with your caloric intake. ## Periactin ## I'm looking to gain weight what can I take ## If u have a high...

Will The weight gainer Cb1 help me gain weight like the weight gainer perieactive ## Hello, Based on my research, Periactin (cyproheptadine) is a prescription medicine that is sometimes given to people who need to gain weight, and Cb1 is a weight gain supplement. That being said, these two pills are very different and may produce different results. It's impossible to know how something will work for you unless you try it yourself. From what I've read, there are people that have had success with Periactin, but that doesn't mean that everyone will have positive results. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Periactin Details Have you spoken with a doctor about taking this medication/weight gainer? ## Cb1 do not work tried that but cyproheptadine really do works yo...

Was trying to order periactin weight gains my appetite is down i go maybe 2 days without bein able to eat i think its stress but i am losing to much weight ## Because Cyproheptadine (Periactin) is a prescription medication - at least here in the US - you will need to visit a doctor in order to get it prescribed. Something to keep in mind though is that if you intend on using this medication for weight gain, doing so may be a waste of time in my opinion, since Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine and weight gain is only listed a possible side effect that may or may not occur. So if you ask me, hoping for 1 side effect to pull through doesn't necessarily sound like a feasible approach to weight gain. Have you considered discussing appetite stimulants with your doctor or maybe even an he...

my height is 5 foot 6 inch and i am increse my height. my age is 22 pls give me better advise. and good tonic for me. thnks. ## I'm sorry, did you want to increase your height or weight? Either way, there isn't a medication that will actually do either. Your height is something that you really cannot change, regardless of what you try. As to weight, you can try to increase that by eating a healthy diet and getting proper exercise. In addition, a lack of B vitamins can sometimes cause a loss of appetite, so they do help some people with increasing their appetite and gaining weight. ## i am from bangladesh.

Im 29 years old. My weight is 50kg, ## I'm not aware of any injections (aside from steroids) that can smaller people gain weight. Someone else in another thread here actually had a similar issue, but recommended trying Periactin (cyproheptadine). Apparently long term use of the drug can stimulate the appetite and may lead to weight gain, which is helpful for underweight people. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Periactin Details Overall, if you are a smaller person who wishes to gain weight, in my honest opinion your best bet is to follow a proper diet and exercise regimen. Even doing that, some people are just naturally small, so your weight may or may not change that significantly. I hope this info helps! ## Hi, my name is Christy. I am 32 yrs. old and have2 kids....

So is it not a steroid based drug? ## Hello, McDaniel94! How are you? No, Periactin contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which the FDA classifies as an antihistamine, it's actually most commonly used to treat allergic reactions. Its typical side effects may possibly include dizziness, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?
