Found out I am underweight Male 17 5'5 100 pounds. If I see a doctor,what you think they might do/prescribe? live in MA for legal reasons.

I don't think I'm depressed or anything but I am never hungry and when I do eat, I can't Finish the food even if its a very small plate. I couldn't finish a bowel of spaghetti tonight after not eating this morning or afternoon.

If you are more physically active it will cause your metabolism to work faster and you will eat more and that will help you gain weight, and muscle as a bonus!

I don't know, but seeing a doctor is probably the right choice. If the doctor does prescribe an antidepressant, take it. They are used in a lot of treatments that aren't strictly "depression" related.

Eat at Mc donnalds for 2weeks and then next thing you know you'll be 110 pounds at least. 1cheese burger and 1med. fries, DAILY.
