Girls are risking their health by taking Apetamin to look like Princess Shyngle

Some Gambian girls are putting their health in jeopardy in their quest to get a curvaceous body like Princess Shyngle by using an Indian-made syrup called Apetamin.

A medical student disclosed to What's On-Gambia: "I was going through social media and I realized that Apetamin is being heavily marketed in the country. This medication has a potent antihistamine in it, which if abused or taken without an appropriate dose can have adverse side effects."

According to him, Apetamin is marketed as a figure augmentation medicine for women. 

"The weight gain is a side effect of the medication and yes it can be prescribed for weight gain but selling the medication without proper prescription and dosing should raise concern," he said.

He added: "There’s a reason why Apetamin is illegal in many countries including the USA. Antihistamines are sedatives and I  have heard instances where people are finishing a bottle in one week which is alarming." 

A senior pharmacist, who begged for anonymity, confirmed that Apatemin is used by many young women to get a slim thick body.

He revealed: " It’s used by a lot of ladies in the country to enhance appetite and gain some weight but there a loads of other products containing the main ingredient cyproheptadine in the market."
