View Full Version : Appetite enhancer medication

04-18-06, 05:07 AM
I take Dexedrine for ADHD and it totally ruins my appetite. I am at the highest dose perscribable. It seems that even though I have developed a high tolerance to this medication the side effect of appetite loss gets worse the higher my dosage goes. I am getting very thin and I am starting to feel weak. Dexedrine makes food seem very unappealing even if my stomach hurts. It seems to make me an even picker eater than I usually am. I have resorted to smoking pot more frequently not to get high but to stimulate my appetite. I am wondering if there is any good medication to stimulate my appetite. The only medications that come up are cancer and aids patientís medications. I don't think I would ever be considered for them. I took remeron before and I gained about 10 pounds but it left me in a very groggy state the next morning so I stopped taking it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

remeron will make you eat like you've never known.

Talk to your Doctor.

Smoking pot just makes brains more ADD-like. Eeeek! And, ofcourse, it's... smoking.

Elavil will pack on the pounds.

You really really (really) need to talk to your Doctor.

Miss, have you contacted her doctor to discuss your concerns, and to report her behaviors?
