Loss of appetite is a common side effect of some medicines. If given, Cyprosin Drop will help resolve this issue by boosting your child’s appetite and hunger. This will thereby improve your child’s nutritional status. But do make sure to speak to your child’s doctor before giving Cyprosin Drop to your child as that will help decide the perfect dosing and duration. It usually takes around a few days to weeks to show results. Make sure to inform the doctor if your child is taking any other medicines.

No. It is true that Cyprosin Drop causes drowsiness as a side effect, but you should never give Cyprosin Drop to induce sleep in children. Consult your doctor if you have any queries regarding the use of this medicine or if your child is experiencing sleeplessness as it could be due to some other underlying disease.

Cyprosin Drop should be stored at room temperature, in a dry place, away from direct heat and light. Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children to avoid any accidental intake.
