Heraclene for weight gain! When my firstborn became a toddler, he had a slow weight gain. Now he is eight years old. Still, that’s the challenge. He’s been drinking up to two glasses of milk and taking multivitamins. Although he is not prone to sickness, I am concern with his body development. The pediatrician prescribed Heraclene for his weight gain.
What is Heraclene Vitamins?
According to drug info from MIMS Philippines, the indication and uses of Heraclene is for premature babies, low birth wt, retarded growth, poor appetite in infant, child & adult, adjuvant to treatment of TB & other chronic ailments, convalescence from acute infection or surgery, faulty nutrition in older people. Heraclene is an appetite enhancer.
When my son was a toddler, he also took this once. He had gain weight during his toddler years. There is only a certain period that you can take this. The doctor is the one who will prescribed it and who’ll give the dosage. Just like a typical boy, my son is an active child. He is actually a fidgety child. He love playing and running. These are some reasons he is not gaining weight fast. His body tends to burn calories fast because of his activities. He might be thin and not big, but he is a smart boy. He is very much interested in Science and Social studies.
Here are some posts I did for my son’s weight gain:
The information posted in my posts for my kid’s weight gain is all about tips for child’s’ weight gain, foods, snacks, and meal to boost calories, and other related ideas.
At a present time, my son is taking Heraclene again. Her pedia prescribed Heraclene capsules twice a day. The Heraclene price is around 16 or 17 pesos per capsule. He will be taking this for 30 days. We will go back to his pediatrician after 30 days for the monitoring of his weight. Apart from the multivitamins, Heraclene, and milk, we will be giving him calorie-boosting foods. It’s funny though that while mommy is trying to loose weight, child is trying to gain weight.
How effective is Heraclene? After a week, we noticed that his food intake improved. He is now asking for more snack during merienda and would eat more meals. We’re looking forward for his weight gain after 30 days.
