What is the most effect,least harmful and rapid results of lean muscle mass wt gain appetite stimulant being used today for patients with HIV? I know Megace has a number of side effects that make it a poor candidate. What else is out there?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear Appetite, Gaing lean muscle mass and appetite stimulation are different things. If you want appetite stimulation without the Megace side effects, Marinol, synthetic marijuana is a good try. It too, though, has side effects, like it can make some people sleepy or high. Building muscle mass usually needs exercise and anabolics or testosterone replacement. Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
