I am 22 years old and super skinny. I have always had issues regarding my weight and have never been able to gain any however hard I tried. Is cyproheptadine useful and safe for weight gain?

Why do you need to gain weight? Unless medically advised there is no need to worry about less weight. Ensure you eat healthy fresh food. Aim for fitness rather than weight.
