Megace for appetite

Recommended Posts

Has anyone taken Megace to increase their appetite while recieving chemotherapy? My mom has absolutely no appetite so at her last appointment I had asked about Megace as I heard it was used to stimulate appetite. Her onc. gave her a prescription for it. That was last Wednesday. As far as I know, she hasn't seen any results yet. I forgot to ask how long it would take to see an improvement. Can anyone tell me how long it took?

Thanks!

It took my dad about a week before I noticed an increase in his appetite. I have to say for us it really helped him gain back some much needed weight!

His was liquid form and he took one (horribly tasting) capful every morning.

I have read in previous posts that it didn't help everyone, but it really helped my dad.

I hope it will help your mom too.

Keep us posted!
