Welcome to HealthcareMagic,

There are some medicines to increase your weight but it will not give you any strength and immunity power. To increase your weight you have to have Balance Diet means all varieties of cereals, pals, legumes, vegetables, fruits, milk & milk products, meat organs, 1 egg per day, dry fruits and nuts. And high protein commercial products you can use daily with milk (like Ensure, Resource high protein.)

Along with this Diet, try to do some muscle building exercises. Surely you will increase your weight.

All the best.
