My Apetamin Weight Gain Experience

For as long as I remembered, I’ve weighed 98 pounds or under. The struggle to gain healthy weight was REAL! You hear all the time about weight loss journeys and weight loss this or weight loss that. But the conversation of weight gain is rarely spoken about in a positive light.

This year, I was determined to gain healthy weight, fast. To help spark my appetite and get the ball rolling I decided to try Apetamin. Apetamin is a supplement (that comes in syrups or pills) that can be used to increase appetite and gain weight.  I’d known about Apetamin for a few years and had done as much research as I could on the supplement before purchasing it. (As a precaution, you should speak with your primary care provider before taking Apetamin!)

One bottle of Apetamin lasts about one week if you’re taking the recommended three times a day dosage. Mine lasted a few weeks longer because I decided to only take 10 mL of Apetamin ONCE a day, 30 minutes before dinner. I only took it once a day because of the side-effects. Apetamin causes severe sleepiness or drowsiness (usually within the first few days). I didn’t want to risk falling asleep at my 9-5 job.

Here’s a list of the other possible side-effects of Apetamin:

  • drowsiness

  • tired feeling

  • sleep problems (insomnia)

  • dizziness

  • spinning sensation

  • blurred vision

  • loss of coordination

  • upset stomach

  • weight gain

  • nausea

  • diarrhea

  • constipation

  • numbness or tingly feeling

  • increased sweating or urination

  • thickening of mucus in the nose/throat, or

  • dry mouth/throat/nose.

Tell your doctor if you have serious side effects including:

  • mental/mood changes (such as restlessness, confusion, hallucinations)

  • shaking (tremor)

  • difficulty urinating, or

  • fast/irregular heartbeat.

Out of that very extensive list of side-effects, here’s what I experienced:

  • drowsiness

  • tired feeling

  • weight gain

Clearly, the pros outweighed the cons in my situation. I’ve gained a total of 16 pounds since starting Apetamin. However, the BEST part is I only took Apetamin for 2 weeks before stopping and I was able to maintain my appetite which allowed me to put on weight without it, and maintain my overall goal weight!

If you’re going to purchase and try Apetamin, my best advice is to keep in mind that you will gain weight EVERYWHERE, not just where you want it to go! All of my new weight settled into my butt, hips, thighs, and stomach. Even my face got a bit fuller! If you’re going to take Apetamin you need to work out and eat healthy as well!

I’m planning on purchasing Apetamin again and documenting my second weight gain journey here on my blog and Instagram! I’m starting my journey at 118 pounds and my goal weight is 135 pounds. I will be restarting my journey again November 2019 so join my newsletter and follow me on Instagram @BusyBeingSha to stay updated!
