Megace to regain fat in face?
Apr 29, 2004

Thanks for your prompt responce with my last question. Anyway, I know megace will increase my appatite and help me gain fat, but that fat go to my mid section rather then my face. What about "weight gain" drinks from health food store?

Thank you, RSH

Response from Dr. Moyle

Dear RSH It's impossible to make fat gain happen in just one place, exercise can help reduce the amount that goes centrally. If you have a diet adequate in calories expensive weight gain drinks are of no value. Talk to dietitian about the diet that is right for your needs.
