How can I eat again? I was prescribed Periactin (Cyproheptadine) to stimulate my appetite and it had been working great for me but I ran out and I don't have a doctor anymore thanks to insurance issues which means I can't get prescriptions anymore. I don't know if there's anything over the counter that would have the same effect. What can I do?

      Something that has helped me is having foods that you don't need to chew, such as yoghurts and soup. It's the movement of the jaw that indicates to your brain that you're eating.

One option mentioned in the context is using medical marijuana to help stimulate appetite. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying any new treatments or supplements. Additionally, consider eating smaller meals throughout the day and incorporating nutrient-dense snacks like protein bars or shakes.
