How can I INCREASE my weight?

Ok, so here's my question:
My appetite lately has been very poor, and as a result I am losing weight... (I'm already very thin, and tall)... It concerns me because my family notices everything. When I'm at a healthy weight and my clothes fit, they notice and compliment me on how good I look. As soon as I lose 5 or 6 lbs, everyone starts asking, "are you ok?", or "are you eating?"... I'm so small now that my collar bone is showing and so I don't feel good about myself.

Is there anything I can do, or take (preferably something natural) that will help increase my appetite, and subsequently help to gain some weight??
Thanks! :o)

P.S. I have Devic's, a form of multiple sclerosis, and I take a hefty amount of drugs. I would normally blame my loss of appetite on my illness, but this time I think something else is causing it...
