My son took Periactin (appetite stimulant) when Focalin interfered with his appetite and gaining weight. It worked OK, but swapping his Focalin booster for Intuniv (non-stimulant) was more effective. I struggle with maintaining weight and have had to lower my daily dose on weekends and or calorie boost (pack in high calorie foods before/after the meds kick in) as much as possible. However, I don’t have an eating disorder, per se.
