HI sourav.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTION.

THE DRUGS WHICH YOU ARE TAKUING-ONE OF THEM IS STEROID,ONE IS MULTIVITAMIN AND ANOTHER IS APETITE STIMULISE(PRACTINE).NOW ALL OF THEM CAN INCREASE WEIGHT.STEROID INCREASES MUSCLE MASS BY INCREASE METABOLISM,MUTIVITAMINE BY ITS NUTRIENTS EFFECT AND PRACTIN OR CYPROHEPTADIN BY INCREASES APPETITE.

ACCORDING TO ME YOU CAN TAKE MUTIVITAMINE SAFELY.

BUT PLEASE DONT TAKE STEROID FOR LONG TIME AS IT HAS VARIOUS ADVERSE EFFECTS.

ABOUT PRACTINE ,ONCE USED IN INDIAN MARKET WIDELY NOW A DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECT CALLED RETOPERITONEAL FIBROSIS IS SEEN IN PRACTINE SO IT IS BANNED IN USA SO PLEASE TRY TO AVOID THAT.THOUGH IN INDIA IT IS VERY MUCH USED.

ABOUT YOUR DROWSINESS IT IS CAUSED BY PRACTINE.

WHY YOU NOT DO A DIET CHART FROM A NUTRITIONIST AND MAINTAIN THAT.DO EXERCISE,WALKING,PLAYING..YOU WILL GAIN YOUR WAIT.

THANK YOU

DR SOURAV GANGULY
