Appetite enhancer for elderly woman on nerve pills?
Sep 12, 2001

Can you name a drug that would be a good appetite enhancer for an 81 year old female who will not eat anything and is on a nerve pill for depression?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

The perfect medication would be Megace for her. I would use a low dose, in general of about 40 mg two or three times per day. I hope it helps! Good luck! DTD

how do you heal after been so ill.
