Brief Answer:
Both Practin and Dexona make you put on weight.

Detailed Answer:
Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic,
Both Practin and Dexona make you put on weight. First by increasing appetite and second by fluid retention.
After stopping you are bound to lose weight.
If you want to gain weight, eat a balanced nutrition with 10% saturated fats, 20% unsaturated fats, soya/Tofu/Paneer/low fat cheese/sprouts/legumes.
Also do both weight bearing and walking exercises to build muscle weight.
