Ruiz Garcia V, et al. Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2013 - Review. PMID 23543530 Free PMC article.
BACKGROUND: This is an updated version of a previously published review in The Cochrane Library (2005, Issue 2) on 'Megestrol acetate for the treatment of anorexia-cachexia syndrome'. Megestrol acetate (MA) is currently used to improve appetite and to increase weight in cancer-associated anorexia. In 1993, MA was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of anorexia, cachexia or unexplained weight loss in patients with AIDS. ...

Use of an ophthalmic formulation of megestrol acetate for the treatment of eosinophilic keratitis in cats.
Stiles J and Coster M. Vet Ophthalmol 2016 - Clinical Trial. PMID 26938779
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate a compounded ophthalmic formulation of 0.5% megestrol acetate to treat eosinophilic keratitis in cats. ...CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The use of an ophthalmic formulation of 0.5% megestrol acetate is a viable option for treating feline eosinophilic keratitis....

Long term use of megestrol acetate by cancer survivors for the treatment of hot flashes.
Quella SK, et al. Cancer 1998 - Clinical Trial. PMID 9576302
Little information has been available regarding the long term use of low dose megestrol acetate for hot flashes. METHODS: Patients previously enrolled on a randomized placebo-controlled trial that evaluated the short term use of megestrol acetate for hot flashes were contacted and interviewed by telephone. ...CONCLUSIONS: A substantial proportion of patients continue to use megestrol acetate for periods of up to 3 years or longer with continued control of hot flashes. ...

Metformin for endometrial hyperplasia
Clement NS, et al. Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2017 - Review. PMID 29077194 Free PMC article.
In terms of adverse effects, three of eight participants (37.5%) in the metformin plus megestrol acetate study arm reported nausea. AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: At present, evidence is insufficient to support or refute the use of metformin alone or in combination with standard therapy - specifically, megestrol acetate - versus megestrol acetate alone, for treatment of endometrial hyperplasia. ...

Randomized double-blind clinical trial of combined treatment with megestrol acetate plus celecoxib versus megestrol acetate alone in cachexia-anorexia syndrome induced by GI cancers.
Kouchaki B, et al. Support Care Cancer 2018 - Clinical Trial. PMID 29442239
We designed this study to test the hypothesis that combination therapy with megestrol acetate (MA) plus celecoxib is superior to MA alone. ...CONCLUSION: Since both MA alone and MA plus celecoxib are associated with improvement of cachexia in GI cancer patients, this study failed to show that adding celecoxib (200 mg/day) to megestrol (320 mg/day) could enhance anti-cachexic effects of megestrol....

Megestrol acetate and mirtazapine for the treatment of unplanned weight loss in the elderly.
Fox CB, et al. Pharmacotherapy 2009 - Review. PMID 19323618
In a comprehensive search of the MEDLINE and International Pharmaceutical Abstracts databases, we identified all published reports on the use of megestrol acetate or mirtazapine for the treatment of weight loss and on any adverse events associated with these drugs. ...Therefore, the use of megestrol acetate or mirtazapine for weight loss should be thoroughly evaluated on an individual basis. ...

Health-related quality of life across cancer cachexia stages
Kasvis P, et al. Ann Palliat Med 2019 - Review. PMID 30525763 Free article.
Specifically, the use of "feeling of wellbeing" (FWB) on the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS) questionnaire and the Distress Thermometer (DT) have been explored. ...Finally, the use of cannabinoids in treating appetite loss was examined, as it has a detrimental effect on FWB; 54 patients underwent cannabinoid treatment for appetite loss within a community-based, physician-lead, medical cannabis clinic. ...
