Q.

Appetite suppliment

I once posted a question to you about my son who was not eating enough and you suggested Longifene Syrup. I''m using it and he is eating very well thank you. I would like to find out will there come a time where he''ll have enough appetite by himself or he''ll be addicted to it?

You are welcome.Longifene will not cause addiction. It is a safe antihistamine. Once your son is eating well you can try him off the Longifene for 3 or 4 days and see if he maintains his appetite. If he stops eating well then give him Longifene syrup for 3 or 4 days at a time, slowly trying to wean him off this appetite stimulant.
