What Is Apetamin Syrup?

Apetamin, also commonly referred to as Apetamin Syrup, is a self proclaimed appetite stimulant created by an indian pharmaceutical company named TIL Healthcare PVT.

One bottle of Apetamin Syrup costs between $19.99-49.99, contains 120ml or 200ml of syrup (depending on the bottle size) and will last users for approximately one month.

This product has seen significant exposure due to a huge amount of youtube influencers singing its praises – in fact, to date there are over 100 videos on youtube that are all discussing the product in a highly positive light. To the typical consumer, this product just looks like a regular health supplement they’d buy from their local supplement store, but the reality is, Apetamin is a banned and dangerous product that contains a prescription-only pharmaceutical drug named Cyproheptadine.

Cyproheptadine is an extremely powerful anti-histamine that is only available when prescribed by a doctor – it must only be used under strict medical supervision, and has the potential to be lethal if misused (as is the case with the Apetamin directions of usage).

Consumers of Apetamin Syrup are told they will experience faster weight gain and higher appetite levels.

Where Can You Buy Apetamin Syrup?

The only places we’ve seen this product for sale are shady websites and online pharmacies. As we said earlier, you aren’t going to find this in your local GNC or Walmart, and you aren’t going to find Apetamin on Amazon either.

The only people who have this product in western nations are likely those who have smuggled it in. If you order this product online, you run the risk of being charged with importing illegal drugs – keep that in mind.

Does Apetamin Syrup Work?

To be completely honest with you, Apetamin Syrup may well help increase your appetite levels. One potential side-effect from the drug Cyproheptadine is increased hunger – however it’s worth noting that this isn’t an effect that 100% of users of the drug will experience.

So, if it sometimes works to boost your appetite, should you use it? Absolutely not.

The most important thing to remember is that this is a banned product. You will not find Apetamin in stores or sold online via reputable health supplement retailers.

The drug inside Apetamin (Cyproheptadine) can only be obtained via a pharmacy, and believe us, this is not a drug you want to be taking unless you’re specifically using it for its original purposes of treating extreme allergies. It has some nasty side-effects (detailed below) and can be potentially lethal if misused, especially if you’re using this product while taking other medications.

So you may be wondering how people are obtaining this product if it’s banned? The answer is simple – if you’re able to get your hands on this product, assuming it’s real and isn’t a counterfeit, it has very likely been smuggled into your country. The US Food & Drug Administration have been issuing warnings and seizure notices on importers of Apetamin on the grounds that:

Unapproved drug present serious safety and effectiveness concerns.

If your ultimate goal is to gain weight, there are many other products out there that are highly useful for the purposes of promoting appetite and weight gain, without containing illegal and dangerous ingredients.

Our Final Verdict On Apetamin Syrup

To conclude our Apetamin Syrup review, this is just something you should totally avoid. Those who are marketing this product are doing a fantastic job of stirring up a huge amount of demand using social media influencers, but don’t fall for it.

If you are struggling with gaining weight or suffer from an eating disorder, we highly advise you look elsewhere – using Apetamin could be dangerous and it isn’t even guarantee to work, plus the side-effects are highly unpleasant too.

When looking at the Apetamin before and after pictures that are floating around online, we could not fully verify that they were legitimate – especially since we found a many that includes images stolen from popular “before & after weight” loss websites.

With so many other great appetite stimulant pills out there that are both safe and legal to buy and use, we personally think you’d be crazy to risk you health using this one
