consume plenty of Good balanced healthy food s high in calorie & proteins & regular right kind of it is much better,harmless & cheaper than any medicine. So concentrate more on diet than on medicine. Underweight occur due to eating disorders/habits or chronic diseases.Disclaimer

Homeopath Dr. Arif. K. Kaware's  Response
For 5'9'' ideal weight is 62-77 ;& 50 or less is underweight ;so at 55kgs you are ok but still need 7-8kgs.So start having high protein diet ;eat well .If you have any sickness or feel sick get investigated .Start exercise to build up your muscles.If you eat properly there will be no need to take medicine;as there are times when you are stressed & occupied so you don't put on weight .If required medicines please consult a doctor & then only take if he advises.
