If you’re not able to take in enough calories to gain weight, it might be time to add a medication to stimulant your appetite. Cyproheptadine is often prescribed for kids when ADHD medication helps but they are losing too much weight as a side effect. No reason an adult couldn’t take it too. Talk with your doctor.
