Maxtra contains some combination drugs, and one of it is known to cause sedation. This is known side effect and you dont have to worry. But, if child is not eating anything then you need to check his hydration status. make sure he pass Urine atleast 4-5 times in 24 hrs, and its not yellow. Morever, illness leads to weakness and child looses interest in surrounding and bodyache in illness is major factor which child cant explain. I hope you are giving Paracetamol along with maxtra for fever, which will treat fever and bodyache.
Next Steps
If child is excessivley sleepy, not eating at all and Irritable, then kindly contact doctor ASAP.
Health Tips
Levocetrizine is better, as anticold medication, as it causes less of sedation

Maxtra 7ml for 2 year child making him sleepy. You can give 2.5ml twice a day for cold.Monocef 0 taste if  its bitter can change it. If he needs antibiotics then rather starting antibiotics investigate him like doing CBC,CRP ,urine test. If everything is normal he may not need antibiotics may be he will just need periodic examination by pediatrician just to keep under observation.
