YES: If you are not able to gain weight you will need blood tests to check your nutritional status and metabolism. Multivitamins are excellent. Medication would only be a last resort after a full medical evaluation.

Appetite ideas...: Appetite becomes normal as a previously healthy person overcomes an illness and recovers. Feeling well, being able to smell food aromas, having no nausea (nor other tummy symptoms), feeling happy, and socializing while eating, all lead to a better appetite. For those losing weight from cancer or aids, some take marijuana extracts or hormone supplements to maintain appetite and weight.
