    positivity……tons of postings on Megace. It appears to help some and not do so well for others. Basically, it is the synthetic form of cannabis.

    All drugs contain substances we could do without, but the way I look at it:
    What is the most important reason for using a specific drug? Does it achieve the overall goal of what I am looking for?

    Hugs

    Hi Tia,

    No personal experiences with Megace but know that others have and hopefully they will chip in with experiences etc about it. I know as well that there are quite a lot of postings on the site that members have made over the years and the search forum function should throw them up.

    I have a few links for you from here in the UK that hopefully will give some more info for you –

    Hello,
    I know there are people experienced or knowledgeable about Megace which is supposed to stimulate appetite, therefore more nutrients and weight for the individual.
    Would there be a reason that a doctor would not suggest it? Bad for liver enzymes, tumor, etc..?

    I am not certain how quickly it works and if it can be a temporary help without using the drug long term for major side effects.
