Calpol 100ml 6+month £1.50 @ Tesco

Just come back from Tesco in Egham, Surrey and they are selling Calpol 100ml bottles for £1.50! Don't know if this is nationwide but that's a bargain. Long expiry date ( till 2012) so I bought 2 bottles ( can only buy 2 at a time because they have that rule in case someone feels like buying them to OD! -)

Edit: just checked tesco grocery website: it is nationwide!

Whilst the may well be a good price, I simply dont understand buying it, pop along to your doctors and just ask for some Capol, of course it comes unbranded, but they will issue you a good size bottle for Free!!

then you need to insist, they are giving you Nurofen I think, as that is white, they do it, dont let them fob you off, it is indentical, last time they gave us 500ML, could not beleive it...

seriously ask for Capol.

Its not nurofen i think is called medinol., i asked for calpol last time and they gave me that.

That's a good price but their own brand paracetamol is £1.56 for 200mls and every bit as good!

(I don't ever bother going the doctors JUST for paracetamol cos I'd be there every week and you have to sit there for at least 2 hours!)

Oh and the paracetamol the chemist gives us on prescription is vile yellow stuff not white or pink, and my kids won't entertain it!! They love Tescos own strawberry flavour one though, don't ever have a problem getting them to take that!

hmmmm not really a good deal to be fair, if you go into a chemist you can ask for it on self care, and get it free. if you explain your child will only take it if its pink they will give you calpol, if they wont its nothing a couple of drops of food colouring cant sort out if you cant get them to take white medcine

Cold for the above reasons. We have just given our Kids a dose within the last 5 mins too. And to be honest if your kids refuse to take Medinol then they are not really that Ill and should not really be given it. If they are really ill they'd not care what colour the Medicine is.

I like this stuff! :)

I sometimes get Calpol for my daughter when she is unwell using the MAS (Minor Ailments Service) at my local pharmacy free of charge. I'm in Scotland if that's of interest since we live in a divided United Kingdom. :roll:

Good deal for calpol.
Once I went to the docs with my poorly 2 yr old and nearly had an argument with one doctor who refused to give me a prescription for calpol, saying they weren't allowed as it's cheap to buy. She gave in in the end.
I went 2 weeks ago with a very poorly 4yr old and the other doc gave me 500ml of the stuff!

If my kids are ill they need Calpol now, not when I can get an appointment.
I would rather pay a couple of quid to make them feel better quickly than letting them suffer from me being a cheap skate.

All prescribers should write a prescription generically unless there is a medical reason why a specific brand has to be taken (allergy with the excipients in the generic for example). Most PCTs have generic prescribing targets with incentives if they are met.

Medinol (if sugar free requested) or Paldesic is normally given as the generic for Calpol. If it's written generically and you ask the pharmacy to supply Calpol expect them to be hesitant as they will only be reimbursed the cost of the generic version.

mosts chemists stock the 6+ strength which can still be given to the under 6 year old [dose in small print].
normally 2.49 for 200ml of strong one which equates to 400ml of the under 6 strength so equivalent price to calpol deal is about 60p - less than half price of tescos calpol.
good unless you have calpol kids of poor parenting!
#19
I added some for my online shop, which is being delivered today.
For the sake of £1.50, it's not worth me dragging the kids to the doctors in a waiting room full of ill people, just to get calpol. I have it here to hand if they are ill.
Thanks

Got 500ml of Junior ParaPaed from doctor yesterday which tastes nice and kids love it.
It still contains 120mg paracetamol / 5ml dose as does Calpol and it's free.

Still got 750ml left from previous visits, so plenty spare for those emergency uses.

Also, as it comes in 200ml bottles, pharmacy gave 2 bottles, plus a seperate 100ml bottle - useful to leave with grandparents etc :-)

This deal - not hot as you shouldn't need to pay for kids mediciine, and with Norovirus (winter vomitting bug), swine flu etc all lurking around every corner these days, your GP will give a sick child priority.

May be OT, but why exactly is it called Infant Suspension?

Also on [url]www.calpol.co.uk[/url] it now says the labels should say NOT for under 6's due to new health reg's
