    Maybe go with a good high-calorie gainer between meals...NLarge2 is a good one.

    High Carbs/all whey Protein its a good one with a not to bad taste

    well i'll tell ya that if there isnt anything that increases your appetite, you should go to wal mart and pick up their equate nutritional supplements (generic ensure) 350 cals per can, and 12 g protein. get the equate plus though. if you cant eat drink one of those. drink 3 a day on top of whatever you eat. it will help.itss an extra 1050 cals.

    I would start takin a protein shake with every meal to make sure you're gettin more then enough protein in and i would a couple ounces of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil to every shake. (except pwo)

    Don't use olive oil instead use flax seed oil....... Have you asked your doctor if there's another med you can use that doesn't suppress the appetite?

    Hematinic.

    One company called EVE sells it under the name, Beef, Iron and Wine.

    Only costs about $5 for 16oz. doesn't taste too bad. Only take like a tablespoon just before you eat a meal. As far as I know, it doesn't interact with any meds, but you should ask your doctor to make sure. There are some other products out there, but hematinic is pretty much the best thing.
