 5  brachiradial prurits, hives None that I can tell. I had this itching withOUT a rash for 2.5 years on my arms that suddenly developed into a rash 2 months ago, and my allergist recommended Xyzal, which did NOTHING. She then prescribed cyproheptadine, which in combination with Buspar has nearly knocked out the itch and the rash. For anyone out there with a mysterious itching on their arms without any sign of a rash (brachiradial pruritis), I highly recommend this drug, with a possible combo of it and Buspar. My itching is 98% relieved (only slight itching when a cold front comes through or the mold and pollen count is very high). F 41 2 months
 5  Increase Appetite and Weight Gain Great Appetite, Weight Gain I finally eat like a normal human should! I eat three meals a day at least and snacks.

I also suffer w/migranes and it has occured to me that I don't get them anymore bc of F 19 7 days
 2  food allergies difficulty urinating, stomach cramps, tremors was a wonderful help for about 1 day. Then I reacted to it, it stopped helping and just got me sick. Oh well, at least I got to dream for a day of getting my life back. My immune system has become very sensitive, so my immune reaction is kinda my problem as much as it is a problem of the drug. M 1 days
 5   This medicine caused a lot of fatigue in the beginning. However the fatigue subsided with time. I also have to be sure to get a full nights sleep while on this medicine. My doctor prescribed this medicine to help with my appetitie. I used to never eat dinner and my others meals were usually small. Within a week, this medicine greatly increased my desire for food. I also suffer from migraines induced by stress and poor appetite and since starting this medicine, I eat more regularly and have far less migraines. I would recommend this medicine. F 5 2 months
