Thank you for choosing HCM
See taking dexona will not increase your weight , its meant for other purposes .
Please do not take such medications without knowing what they are actually intended for, im pretty sure this must have been a "friend" who suggested to you.
Gaining weight is easy , basic theory is consume more calories than what you burn.
So 1.Eat a high protein diet (100 gms/day)
2.Stay hydrated
3.Join a gym (3-4 times a week)
4.Take a whey protein
5.Take multi vitamins
6.Eat regulary at every 3-4 hours
Follow these steps and you should be on your way to put on quite a few pounds , and you can stop taking dexona its absolutely useless in this context.
Thank you and take care
