Cyproheptadine review by 20 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Allergy to trauma to the face.
Dosage & duration:   25 (dosage frequency: i took it every night) for the period of everyday for about 2 months
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   What I really like about this medication is that it cleared up my sinuses. I no longer experience the tingling feeling that I had in my cheeks and around my lip area. I am also very happy that the medication helped me with my allergies to dust and to the effects of dry air on my nose. It stopped my nightly nose bleeds.
Side effects:   There were two side effects to the drug. The first side effect was that I was very drowsy. I knew that this would be a side effect and so that is why I took the medication about a half hour to an hour before bed. Another side effect was an increase in appetite. I gained a few pounds because of an increase in appetite.
Comments:   For the treatment I was given a few options as to how I could take the medication. One option was to take 1/4 of the medicine at night and take a tablet of Zyrtec during the day time. Another option was that I could take 1/4 at night without the Zyrtec during the day. I was also allowed to take 1/2 a table to 1 whole tablet daily. I tried all of these and the one that worked the best for me was taking 1/2 a tablet at night everyday.
