It is just a digestive enzyme preparation and may not help much in inducing appetite.It is harmless.
If she is improvingn on her own why don't you wait and watch her weight gain.
All the better!

Active ingredients- Diastase Ip (which is a fungal diastase obtained from Aspergilus oryzae) and Pepsin.
it is just enzyme which help to digest food, i think your baby got some indigestion so it is working nicely.
It is just supplying the same enzyme which is in our stomach.
It also have no side effects.
Anyway if you want to stop it then do it gradually may be like that--
