Megestrol 20 Mg

People with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), breast cancer, or endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus) may receive a prescription medication called megestrol acetate (Megace®).
Megestrol used to be available in 20-mg and 40-mg tablets; however, the brand-name tablets are no longer manufactured (generic versions are still available). The tablets are prescribed to relieve symptoms of breast cancer or endometrial cancer. They are usually taken several times a day.
There is also an oral suspension available that is prescribed to stimulate appetite and cause weight gain in people with AIDS. The oral suspension is usually taken once daily.
Your specific dosage will depend on how you respond to the medication, the particular product you are using, and various other factors.
