No drug is free from side effect whether is allopathic Ayurveda /homeopathic .Drugs demaxophane you are taking is steroids whose long term use without proper indicated is always harmful. Another is appetizer & antihistamine ,its long term use also not free from side stop taking for long time without proper indication.Disclaimer

Homeopath Dr. Arif. K. Kaware's  Response
ciplactin is cyproheptadine used to increase appetite & antihistaminic .It produces voracious appetite & induces lots of lethargy & even sleep.Excess of food eaten with no exercise is extra work for stomach;intestine & liver .sometime they will also get tiredas they are overworked & liver function will get disturbed.The other tablet is steroid ;it is a drug used for specific treatment by doctors & long term use is not advisable.Unnecessary taking of steroid for weight gain will give rise to joint pain ;swelling;suppression of bone marrow ;& even make your bones porous & brittle .It will create a disease which will not be easily treated ;so better discontinue ASAP.Never use it for weight gain again.
