Brief Answer:
It won't cause weight gain

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Dexorange syrup is an iron supplement and it is not going to cause weight gain to you.
It would just help in building up your hemoglobin levels.
Yes, it can lead to increase in blood sugar levels, if you are a diabetic. You may opt for Dexorange capsules instead of syrup in that case.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
