Hello doctor,

My daughter is 50 days old. Can I give her Cyp L drops to my baby? If yes, what is the dosage? My baby is not sleeping well, so please suggest.



Welcome to

Cyp L drops (Cyproheptadine, Tricholine Citrate, and Sorbitol) is used to increase appetite and has side-effect of sleepiness. It is not used for putting a child to sleep. And I would not recommend giving this drops to a 50-day old child. Children below the age of 6 months stay awake at night and sleep throughout the day which is why you feel the child is not sleeping well. But, it is normal. So, do not worry.
