Periactin help u gain weight?
I'm 23 years old and only weight 120lbs i want to gain more weight so i can look my age my 15 year old sister is bigger than me my mom always picks on my size. Saying i'm underweight so i want to take periactin but i want to know does it works. Asked by Brigette Springman 1 year ago.

Periactin is an antihistamine given to help relieve cold- and allergy-related symptoms such as hay fever, nasal inflammation, stuffy nose, red and inflamed eyes, hives, and swelling. Periactin may also be given after epinephrine to help treat anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. Some doctors prescribe Periactin to treat cluster headache and to stimulate appetite in underweight people. Like other antihistamines, Periactin may make you feel sleepy and sluggish. However, some people, particularly children, may have the opposite reaction and become excited. Side effects may include: Anaphylaxis (life-threatening allergic reaction), anemia, appetite loss, chest congestion or tightness, chills, confusion, constipation, convulsions, diarrhea, difficulty urinating, dizziness, dry mouth, nose, or throat, earlier-than-expected menstrual period, exaggerated feeling of well-being, excessive perspiration, excitement, faintness, fatigue, fluttery or throbbing heartbeat, frequent urination, hallucinations, headache, hives, hysteria, inability to urinate, increased appetite and weight gain, insomnia, irritability, lack of coordination, light sensitivity, liver problems, low blood pressure, nausea, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, rash and swelling, restlessness, ringing in the ears, sleepiness, stomach pain, stuffy nose, tingling or pins and needles, tremor, vertigo, vision problems (double vision, blurred vision), vomiting, weight gain, wheezing, yellow eyes and skin Answered by Herschel Karst 1 year ago.

Periactin (Cyproheptadine) is an antihistamine and serotonin antagonist (down-regulate histamine and serotonin actions in body), primarily used to relieve allergy symptoms. It has been used, as a sideline drug, for eating disorder eg annorexia. Antagonism of serotonin on the appetite center of the hypothalamus (brain) may account for Cyproheptadine's ability to stimulate appetite. It’s relative safe at standard dose range and may cause serious problems when overdosed. Major side effect include sleepy, mouth-nose driness and moody. So be cautioous taking the drug when driving, work in risk environments and attention-demaning situation (final exam, monthly job report, wedding etc.days) By u2healing from www.U2Healing.com Answered by Florencia Rothwell 1 year ago.

This drug is used for allergies. It is an antihistamine. I would highly doubt that it would allow you to gain weight quickly because this drug does not work in that way. If you want to gain weight, just eat bigger portions of healthy balanced meals with plenty of fruit and vegetables. Gaining weight from a pill is not a good idea.

Where to get periactin without prescription I want to gain weight?
Omg where can I ordee periactin without a prescription to gain weight. I dont know if my doctor would prescribe it to me and most of the only pharmacy is fake Asked by Leeanne Donn 1 year ago.

You don't. Periactin is an antihistamine. It's primary use is not for weight gain, although it has been used for that. Using any prescription drug unsupervised--especially for an off-use--is asking for trouble. A total of 609 drugs (3724 brand and generic names) are known to interact with Periactin (cyproheptadine). Using cyproheptadine together with alcohol can increase nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with cyproheptadine. Do not use more than the recommended dose of cyproheptadine, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medication without first talking to your doctor. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction while taking cyproheptadine (the active ingredient contained in Periactin) hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop taking cyproheptadine and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as: confusion, hallucinations, unusual thoughts or behavior; seizure (convulsions); ringing in your ears; feeling like you might pass out; fast or pounding heartbeats; easy bruising or bleeding; urinating less than usual or not at all; or pale or yellowed skin, dark colored urine, fever, or unusual weakness. Less serious side effects of cyproheptadine may include: mild drowsiness, dizziness, or spinning sensation; feeling restlessness or excited (especially in children); sleep problems (insomnia), tired feeling; numbness or tingly feeling; increased sweating or urination; blurred vision; appetite changes; dry mouth or nose, upset stomach; or nausea, diarrhea, constipation. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. Cardiovascular side effects have included hypotension, tachycardia, and palpitations. This might be the right drug for you,if you have a severe problem gaining weight--but you must see a doctor!

Does anyone know what periactin is and what does it do?
its some kinda of pill Asked by Belia Jenderer 1 year ago.

Periactin® (cyproheptadine hydrochloride) is an antihistaminic and antiserotonergic agent. It acts as a 5-HT2 receptor antagonist and also blocks calcium channels. It is used in the treatment of allergies (specifically Hay Fever) and is also used to stimulate appetite in underweight people (e.g. anorexia nervosa), however it also causes sedation. Sometimes it may be used to combat SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction, but is used cautiously in this manner due to the fact that it may reverse the effects of the SSRI. Cyproheptadine also can be used for a hormone disorder (Cushing's Syndrome). Cyproheptadine is also used, though rarely, as a prophylactic drug for migraine. Answered by Ciera Tricomi 1 year ago.

How can i get a prescription for periactin?
what reason can i give the doc? or shud i tell him the real reason i want it is because i want to gain weight? also what are the side effects? Asked by Bianca Nathe 1 year ago.

I am sure doctor will not prescribe you periactin just because you want to gain weight. Was in the same situation, simply went online and purchased periactin off the internet. I finally eat like a normal human should! I eat three meals a day at least and snacks. I could barely eat twice a day before, and bc of that I kept loosing weight on top of my fast metabolism I believe the site was POMpharmacy.com Answered by Melissia Lukan 1 year ago.

Not the best idea to gain weight taking this. Possible side effects... Problems with co-ordination. Confusion. Headache. Blurred vision. Difficulty passing urine (urinary retention). Disturbances of the gut such as diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain. Dry mouth, nose or throat. Nosebleeds. Answered by Lucius Birkner 1 year ago.

Periactin (Cyproheptadine) is an antihistamine that suppress natural Human Growth Hormone production. This would make building muscle mass more difficult, not less. It may stimulate appetite, but that will most likely lead to fat gain and not muscle gain. Answered by Glinda Cellar 1 year ago.

I don't think it is the answer to gaining weight. It can make you very sleepy. "This medication can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase some of the side effects of cyproheptadine." Possible side effects...

I looked this up on google as I was not familiar with this. Periactin is given to treat allergies so i don't see how it would help you to gain weight. It also listed several serious side effects. Also it caused serious problems if taken together with drugs prescribed for common ailments which you may be taking already. Personally this information made me think that I would never take periactin unless prescribed by my doctor. Answered by Lane Jergenson 1 year ago.

Dmg and periactin for autism?
I found a website that said these things may aid in helping autistic children has anyone ever tried using these? Asked by Kathey Shuck 1 year ago.

We have used periactin on and off for seven years and have found that it helps with sleep and digestion for our child with PDD. It was originally presribed for allergies and because our child was underweight and found that it helps with gut issues (in conjunction with antacids). Our experience with DMG was inconclusive and thus we stopped using it. Answered by Thomas Szlosek 1 year ago.
