Child had fever. Does ciphon have side effects?

Hi , I have a 23 month old baby boy,he weight 12 kg. my query is sometimes my son eats very well for 10 to 15 days but after that for another 15 days he stop eating. sometimes he don t eat any thing for whole day only have 1-2 cup of milk. so we stared giving him Ciphon syrup after that he started eating very nicely. but in last week he got fever for 2-3 days. so according to Dr suggestion we gave him antibiotic . now again he has started stop eating. is that fine if we give Ciphon for long time? is there any side effects of that? or should we wait for that he starts eating automatically? but being a mother i cant see him without eating! but dr says he will start eating automatically. dont worry! what to do?

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Kids around this age will eat in this type of pattern only.
If the child is active and healthy, nothing to worry.
Personally I don't suggest Cypon for increasing appetite as it has side effect of drowsiness which will interfere with his activity and oral intake.
You can wait as the child eats whenever he is hungry.
Hope I have answered your query.
