Weight Gain Syrups that can work
as a Substitute for Apetamin Syrup
I have been planning to do such a post since a lot of time. I did a recent research on the available Apetamin Substitutes. In India, it is quite difficult (or impossible, in my case) to spot Apetamin in the offline stores or pharmacies. Due to which we will have to rely on buying it from online stores. Though you can purchase this way, buying offline – always has a couple of advantages. They are: you can be sure of the expiry date of the drug, you can ask your queries directly to the pharmacist, you can avoid the lag between your ordering and their delivery etc.
All these reasons made me realize why it is such a necessity to look for alternatives to Apetamin that can give the same results! Hence, comes this post for you.
Before the Substitutes, let me tell you a few things about Apetamin. There are some major misconceptions about the Apetamin Syrup. Once I suggested this syrup to someone on Facebook and a guy pops up and says – it can damage your kidneys, it is a steroid etc.
I was having no enough knowledge to counter these allegations, so I decided to take the help from the registered pharmacist in my home 🙂 He scrutinized the ingredients and shared me a few details which I want each of you to know.
Is Apetamin Multivitamin Syrup Safe for Intake?
First of all, let us check the ingredients of the Apetamin Syrup.
+THIAMINE (VITB1)-2MG + NICOTINAMIDE-15MG
He said me that the Cyproheptadine is an antihistamine which is a drug used especially in the treatment of allergies. Increase in appetite is one among its other side effects.
Lysine is a basic amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins.
Symptoms related to a deficiency in lysine include nausea, fatigue, dizziness, anemia, loss of appetite, and hair loss/low hair growth. So, having sufficient lysine stimulates your appetite.
Thiamine is Vitamin B1.
It is a coenzyme used by the body to metabolize food for energy and to maintain proper heart and nerve function (Source: here)
Dexpanthanol is a derivative of Vitamin B5.
Vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, is involved in many different functions of the body. It helps convert food into energy and it also helps the body use proteins and fats. (Source: here)
Nicotinamide is Vitamin B3.
Niacin has a wide range of uses in the body, helping functions in the digestive system, skin and nervous system. Niacin, a name coined from nicotinic acid vitamin, comes in several forms, including niacinamide or nicotinamide. (Source: here)
Pyridoxine is Vitamin B6.
Vitamin B6 plays an important role in the body. It is needed to maintain the health of nerves, skin, and red blood cells. (Source here)
