What is his problem? Megace and marinol are two meds that can help. If he has a specific illness there may be more things.

I thought about this too. If he's elderly it can be because he's lost most of his taste and what is left is the sweet. Sometimes sprinkling a little sugar on all their food can get them eating. Adds some calories too which is usually a good thing.

Hi Bobby67,

My son is on a ADHD med and lost all his appetite. The doc prescribe Ciproheptadine and it works like a charm. He eats normally now.
