Pizotifen is a serotonin antagonist (5-HT2B receptor antagonist). It belongs to the group of appetite stimulants and is used in medicine to increase appetite and prevent cluster headache, vasomotor headache and migraine. Pizotifen does not help if you suffer of headache it only may help to prevent. The usual dosages range from 0.5mg per day to 4.5mg per day spread over 3 intekes. In Germany it was known under the brand names Mosegor and Sandomigran. It has been withdrawn from the market and is only available through the international pharmacy.

In bodybuilding, pimzotifen is used to increase appetite, since a steroid cure without the right diet and training methods would only result inĀ little success.
Since bodybuilders often do not have enough appetite during a steroid treatment and therefore have to force themselves to eat, pimpotifen is a popular means to arouse hunger.
Tests over several years in rats and dogs resulted in damage to the liver and the thyroid gland.
