She has been refusing to eat thereby losing weight. 2. Is she suppose to b taking blood syrup with the antibiotic. She's nine months + .Thanks
You should keep offering food no matter how small but should the low appetite persists, kindly take the child back to the doctor for a follow up.

Pls don't give blood tonic with antibiotics. Poor appetite is not improved by blood tonic. You can give vitamin Bco.... Loss of appetite is a side effect of many drugs and the illness itself.... As the child gets better, the appetite will improve spontaneously
