Loss of Appetite

I have a friend who underwent radiation treatment (he's in his 80s), and has now lost his sense of taste and his appetite. Is there any vitamin/herbal/nutritional supplement that he can take to help induce appetite?

Vitamin B12 is a good appetite stimulant, especially when given by injection. It can be given in a dose of 1000 mcg. daily indefinitely. The best B12 is methylcobalamine.
