Brief Answer: You can continue Cyp-L drops for maximum 2 months. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for asking query on health care magic. Cyp-L drops can be given maximum for 2 months. It causes drowsiness as it is an anitihistaminic preparation. It is wise to offer foods that child likes and take more time to feed the child with tender loving care and encourage her to eat of her own. Praise the child if eats, but do not get annoyed if she does not. Start giving energy dense foods to enable her to pick up weight even if she eats little. Hope this answer will serve your purpose. Please feel free to ask me any more queries if required, I shall be happy to answer. Take care. Dr.M.V.Subrahmanyam.
