I want to take cent rum vitamin to increase my appetite its safe or not thanks doctors?

Safe, not effective: There have been many claims for various vitamins and their ability to increase appetite. There is no reliable information to support this idea.

In general, multiple vitamins like Centrum as safe to take; however, best idea is to eat as healthy a diet as possible:) ...Read more

No vitamin 2 gain wt: Sorry but there's no vitamin to increase weight, otherwise, most people here in the states would avoid it like the plague. However, you still need vitamins to prevent diseases like c for scurvey & d for rickets. Check w/your family doc to make sure your thyroid is normal (and mood too). Then check w/nutritionist to determine what you're eating now & how much you need to eat to gain muscle weight. ...Read more

None: Appetite in toddlers naturally goes up and down with activity and growth cycles. It is almost always a bad idea for anyone, toddlers included, to eat beyond when they are hungry.

My five year old girl has no appetite. How do u get her to eat again? Is there any over-the-counter vitamin that can be recommend.

Discuss with PCP: If your kid is growing at a normal rate & participating in peer activities, i'd leave her appetite alone. At 5 they are growing at a steady 3-4 lb/yr & 2-3 inches. They rarely eat a balanced meal but do have a balanced week. They often feed well only 4-5 days a month. If you want to buy vitamins, buy them, but recognize that you're likely just creating expensive urine. ...Read more

Major exams nearing and I have lost my appetite. I'm taking multi vitamin supplements. I'm losing weight drastically. I just can't eat much?

Relax...: The stress from major exams will induce a "fight or flight" response in your body which will cause significant inhibition of stomach and upper-intestinal action to the point where digestion slows down or stops leading to a perceived lack of appetite. My recommendation is to relax, take deep breaths, and take things one step at a time. Try eating multiple small meals throughout the day. ...Read more

Feeding expectations: A 2yo is an age where they begin to demand independence in frustrating ways & the change in their growth needs puts parents in a bind. Between 2-3 they will grow 2-3 in/4lb compared to 10in/14lb the first year. They seldom if ever eat a balanced meal & I expect them to eat well 3-4d/mo. The rest they just nibble. I expect a balanced wk & most get it. If the kid's growth is ok @ checkups, ok to relax. ...Read more

Daily bowel movement: Constipation is often the reason for poor appetite. The GI tract is a long tube ~30 feet long. Imagine the kitchen drain that is clogged at the lower end and we keep adding stuff on the top. Correct constipation with increased water intake and goods oils for lubrication, and high quality probiotics.

Fatigue is commonly due to hormonal imbalance especially adrenals. Find a holistic doctor. ...Read more
