Jan 17, 2004
Plse can u tell me from where it comes loss of apetite ? This now has been more than a month
| Response from Dr. Young
There are many causes of anorexia in our community-- HIV alone can cause loss of appetite as can low testosterone levels, depression or drug side effects.
Understanding (or eliminating) the possible causes should permit good treatments; we've used a number of appetite stimulants with great success-- these include dronabinol (Marinol) and megestrol (Megase).
