Brief Answer:
try nutrigain

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I can understand your concern about low body weight.
There are no medicines for increasing body weight as such, but some drugs cause weight gain as a part of their side effect. We don't want to use such drugs.
The best solution is to take high protein nutritional diet and see that you take in more calories than you spend in a day.
You may try "nutrigain" high protein powder dialy for 3 months, take it as fruit punch by adding 2 bananas daily. See that you stretch up most of the muscles for best muscle growth.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
try these drugs

Detailed Answer:
Hi, you can try omeprazole or rabeprazole along with ondancetran. Both are available over the counter. Take omeprazole once a day at 6 am and ondancetran twice a day for 1 week and see the difference.
If there is no improvement, you can consult your doctor.
Hope I am clear.
