hello sir...im a student of age 21 years old. I have used practin and dexona and for quite sometime and realised that when i use them i gain quite a lot of weight in a matter of just few days. But as soon as i stop taking them,it takes only half the time of weight gaining duration to lose weight and look pathetic again. What is all the more astonishing is that,I get more thinner than I was before once I stop using them. I can feel that my digestive system isnt working properly and I am not able to eat properly. What can i do to get rid of these side effects. I have already made up my mind that never again will I make the mistake of using these two medicines for the greed of gaining weight. I just want to get back to my normal physical self. Looking forward to you reply eagerly. Thank you !!!

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
