Anyone know any ways to get appetite back with gastroparesis? I’m on medication for nausea but it doesn’t usually help and I’ve had many different treatments for gastroparesis in the past and nothing has helped. I just wish I could enjoy food again

      Medical marijuana has helped me tremendously

      The only medication I’ve tried that has improved my appetite was zyprexa, but honestly I couldn’t handle it. It made me so hungry but eating anything still made me so so sick. I felt like I was losing my mind caught between relentless hunger and terrible symptoms. But maybe a low dose could be tolerable if you want to try stimulating appetite? I completely understand wanting to enjoy food again. It’s so hard and so frustrating

        @BoomerangValentine thank you for that recommendation, I’ll ask my dr about that

          @MomijiBatman just be careful if you struggle with mental health issues. Zyprexa is actually an antipsychotic medication and can make depression worse in some people.
