cyp l syrup belongs to a group of combination medicines called ‘appetite enhancer’ used to stimulate the appetite and treat alimentary tract and metabolism problems. Cyp L syrup helps treat lack of appetite, weight loss, and anorexia nervosa (an eating disorder with low body weight).
Lack of appetite results in missing meals. This in turn may cause a lack of some essential and nonessential nutrients. Taking cyp l syrup enhances food consumption and hence helps in fulfilling nutritional needs.
cyp l syrup is a combination of three medicines: cyproheptadine, sorbitol, and tricholine. Cyproheptadine is an appetite-enhancer. It works by decreasing the effect of a chemical messenger (serotonin) in the hypothalamus, a portion of the brain which controls appetite.
Sorbitol behaves as a syrup base and as an osmotic laxative to reduce constipation. On the other hand, Tricholine is a bile acid-binding agent that eliminates bile acids from the body. The liver then generates more bile acids using cholesterol, due to which cholesterol level is reduced.
Take cyp l syrup as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take syrup for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical conditions. You may experience dryness in the mouth, constipation, sleepiness, drowsiness, and blurred vision.
Most of these side effects of cyp l syrup do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
Inform your doctor before taking cyp l syrup if you have asthma, hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, intraocular (eye) pressure, or heart problems. Consult your doctor before taking cyp l syrup if you are pregnant. It is not recommended to take syrup if you are breastfeeding.
Cyp L syrup may cause drowsiness, so drive with caution. Avoid consumption of alcohol while taking syrup as it may cause increased drowsiness. Keep your doctor informed about all the medicines and your health condition to rule out any side-effects.
