Megace for weight gain??? Anybody tried it

Has anybody taken megace? The doctor I went who just has a DO claimed that it will help me gain weight. It is usually used for people who have cancer or AIDS or breast cancer. I was reading the side effects and it looks really kinda scary. I am wondering if anybody has had good results with megace. She prescribed 40mg tablets twice a day.

Re: Megace for weight gain??? Anybody tried it

Instead of a drug for weight gain, why don't you try the old fashioned American method of gaining weight. EAT MORE! Jump on the bandwagon, eat more, and you'll definitely pack on the pounds. Why you would want this is beyond anything that you've disclosed, but the fact that you're looking into taking medication normally reserved for AIDS patients means that it's probably fairly serious in nature.

Good luck in whatever it is you're trying to accomplish.
