A fussy eater. Can I give him Cypon syrup to increase his appetite ?

Hi, my son is a fussy eater. I am worried about his health. He takes pedia sure about 5 oz in sleep refuses to take breakfast . Takes lunch n small quantity and during his afternoon nap I give him pedia sure . Night dinner is cerelac or bread ,finally when he goes to sleep pedia sure about 4 oz . Sometimes During midnight he cries out of hunger when I again give him milk. I know his feed is dis organized because he is so fussy that I only concentrate on somehow giving him healthy food. Can I give him cypon syrup to increase his appetite and organize proper eating schedule. Please advise as I am traumatized for the past 2 years. He is 2 years and 2 months.

Thanks for your query.
Relax,this is normal for a child to behave like this.
You have to be patient with him ,feed him when other family members are eating,use two spoon method that is take one spoon yourself and give him second one.
Give him fruit juices,vegetable soup as they act as natural apetizers.

I will not advise you to do any self medication.
Cypon(cyproheptidine) is anti allergic and increase in appetite is one of its side effects.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless..
