For Weight Loss “I took this drug for 6 months due to weight loss-no appetite-down to 75 pounds.My old insurance covered–then when new insurance was started in jan 2014, no coverage available.This was WONDERFUL!!! For the first time in my life, I was hungry, enjoyed food and was always looking forward to my next meal. I would purchase if I could afford because this was the BEST thing that could happen to me–someone who has NO appetite!! No side effects for me.”

For Anorexia “Medication works great for SHORT TERM usage. Long term usage can suppress your adrenal glands and suppress your Hypothalmic-pituitary-adrenal axis.”

For Weight Loss “I’ve used Megace to help with lack of feeling hungry which results in poor protein intake. Megace keeps my hunger level at a point where I want to eat and can keep my weight and nutrition up.”
