I have always had healthy eating habits, however, maintaining a healthy weight, or appetite since my diagnosis 3 years ago has been a big challenge. When I was first diagnosed, I did not have insurance but was able to get most of my prescriptions through a program at low cost.
The P.A. I was seeing at the time ordered Megace which started working immediately. However, sometimes the prescription was not being called in by the P. A. which meant I was not able to take it on a regular basis, so I started loosing weight again. As a result of the substantial weight loss in such a short period of time, my health problems became worse. I also tried Periactin, however, it caused severe drowsiness to the point I could not function at all.
Have any of you ever experienced this, or something similar? Does anybody have any suggestions for stimulating the appetite? Your suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.
