Just another local deal. Our local has the 6+ Calpol reduced to £1.14 at the minute. All I got as a toddler was half a asprin or paracetamol crushed and given me in a glass of water (so that would be 32 doses in a packet that costs around 25p today).
Go to your local pharmacy and ask for it under 'Care at the Chemist'. You will get it free.

Not this again, draining the NHS for cheap bits you should really be buying yourself
Why? You pay NI and living in a welfare state, you should expect to receive services like this. This is because of the politicians that we have to spent extra over paying NI (and other taxes). The want to spent money on wars and go out to look for aliens instead of spending same money on NHS or any other public services.
PS: I agree that you should just get cheaper generic medicines rather than more expensive branded ones.
NHS funds would be better spent on ensuring high provision of services, surgery etc as well as reducing waiting times and investment into research. This scheme may be a drop in the ocean in the NHS but there's no doubt that that money could be used more efficiently instead of Mumsnet types scrounging free Calpol and plasters they can afford.

If you need your child to be given calpol at nursery or school if they are not feeling 100% it must be prescribed otherwise they will refuse it administer. I hardly think this constitutes as scrounging. Also I get things on prescription that I can buy over the counter. I buy a prepay certificate because I need a lot of meds, I don't see anything wrong in me getting a box of paracetamol, ibuprofen or allergy tablets. My doctor encourages me to get things on prescription as I take lots of different things and it helps when monitoring and reviewing medication as I forget to mention them also it means when I am unable to leave home due to illness I haven't got to struggle up the road for pain relief or scrounge a pack from a neighbour.
You can get coupons for money of calpol anyways making it affordable!
Boots own brand is £2.24.
You couldn't pay that?

I've bought the sachets a few times and also the bottles. Don't bother with the bottles though as once opened you have a month (maybe 6 weeks?) to use it. No child should consume a whole bottle over that period so every single bottle sold won't get used. Sachets are much better.
with most solutions/suspensions that are not freshly made and your storage conditions are good ( under 25C and in a cupboard/fridge) once opened 90 days is the recommend time to keep the liquid
I'm sure you are correct but I'm not about to go against the instructions on the bottle when giving it to my 1 or 3 year old.
I wont say thats incorrect but you will have to tell me which brand it says that on, as im looking through the Calpol right now, I cant see it anywhere stating those times to discard the medication after, and this is just out of curiosity :) everyone decides whats best for their family :)
Apologies, you're totally right! I was confusing this with Neurofen for kids but checked that too and no info on how soon to use after opening. I must have been looking at something different.
The sachets are definitely a lot more convenient that the bottles though.

Decent price. Worth buying rather than using minor ailments at local pharmacy. They give non-branded and without the much easier to use syringe.
only difference between this and the non branded is the price they charge oh and the syringe which though supposed to give the better dose with older kids its easier to use a spoon.
I beg to differ, syringe is far easier unless by older you mean over 4. I haven't had that experience yet ;)

yes over 4, with a dose bigger than a single syringe and you have to either get the child to keep their mouth open or use another syringe but they only come with one and in some of the medicines you have to have 3 syringes. With a spoon you don't have any issues, except why they went down the syringe route because parents cant administer medicine correctly or so the government thinks. In the same way as they think we shouldn't give cough or cold medicine to under 5 any more because some parents couldn't dose their children correctly.


Syringe is far easier to give a wriggling baby with tooth ache.

Spoon over syringe for my 3yo any day, she can keep still!
Be careful with this, some children can be allergic to this medicine. Gave this to our 2 year old and she developed a very very irritating rash all over her body. She was miserable and even the doctors couldn't find what was wrong. As soon as we stopped this, she was back to normal within a day. Hope this doesn't happen to anyone.

Just a tip. For around the same or less than the price of this you can buy beeswax and oils to make your own vapo rub. There's recipes all over the net. I have never looked back. There's no night light of course but a nice wee back and foot massage with it has worked miracles on my 2 when poorly

You know exactly what's in it, takes 5 minutes to make and you avoid petroleum!
Also honey really is nature's little miracle when it comes to taming a cough. I use raw organic tropical honey but squeezy supermarket stuff will work too!
Note that bubbies aren't allowed honey til they're how ever many months old though

onlineo
no shelf edge label,scans at£3 and will not reduce price

Like I said in my OP, that's what happened to me. But the half price label was there for both, and as I bought 4xCalpol at £1.50 and 2xNurofen at £1.65, the manager gave me a £9.30 credit for the £18.60 I'd been charged. Wonder why there was no price tag at your store? M&S are sometimes a bit inaccurate with their promotions when it comes to paying -- with many food deals, I've often found the promotion hasn't gone through at the till. The staff in my local store are a bit sick of me complaining, but this kind of thing does happen quite often in there...
Oneday77
As for calpol being more effective, sorry it may taste better. However any balancing agents that help keep it down would be part of the registered licence number, which I don't believe it has. It is paracetamol registered and nothing else.

As an adult with a genetic condition who has taken a LOT of painkillers over the years I do strongly believe that Nurofen (Ibuprofen) does sit better on my stomach and *may* be slightly more effective than generic Ibuprofen. (I am NOT easily swayed by marketing and primarily buy generics, but on the odd occasions I take Nurofen it always feels better to me). I have long pondered that and I *suspect* that the difference may be the excipients that Nurofen uses. These would have a bearing on the uptake of the active ingredient and I'd wager don't have to be registered?

if you need free calpol then you shouldn't be having kids that you can't afford...
Normally I'd agree if it was a more frivolous product ie Pregnacare or vitamins. However I think it's fair enough to get free pain killers for children.
It should be noted that you don't get calpol, you get the cheaper ibuprofen/paracetamol equivalents that do exactly the same thing.
If you want to buy some in for emergencies, don't pay calpol prices.
We get Zero benefits, except child allowance. Claiming the odd non-means tested £1 here or there seems fair enough. We also have free medical insurance through our work so if we need anything serious for the adults we won't be a big drain on the NHS. Min Scotland this is called minor ailments. If a pharmacy can save a doctors appointment that resulted in prescribing rest and pain killers it's a huge saving to the NHS anyway.


​yes but you can grab them in pound shops or asda so why should you get then for free. Again If you have kids then make sure you can afford to look after them

Whatever you do you clearly don't understand the minor ailment service for children. It exists to free up GPs time.
I agree with the above. The minor ailment service is designed to take pressure from the General Practitioners. It is for exactly that, minor ailments, for over the counter medications recommended by the pharmacist. No GP appointment is required.
What you get, whether the branded Calpol, or generic paracetamol is down to the individual local areas policy. I know for FACT that in areas of Leeds Calpol is available on this scheme.
Nevertheless the drug is the same whether Calpol or generic paracetamol. From an NHS perspective they ought to be be precribing the most cost effective.
Calpol prescribed by pharmacists, or generic equivalent, isn't going to break the NHS bank. It's got plenty of other pressures it needs to deal with first........just dont go to your GP with minro ailments. Speak to the pharmacists and ask about the scheme.
(Conflict - I'm not a GP - I'm Hospital Doctor)

I think that the more people who know about the service the better. There's plenty of people on here who are complaining about others taking their freebies (in the grand scale of things it's peanuts) on the NHS and how they would be embarrassed to ask for it. However, those people who know about the scheme are more likely to go along to the pharmacy to ask for advice than bother a GP. It's far cheaper for the NHS for someone to get 'freebies' for their kid's minor ailments than to use a 10 minute GP appointment. Unfortunately, those who have been bashing the users of the service look no further than it being a NHS freebie.

However little a saving generic paracetamol is to Calpol if you roll this out throughout the scope of other meds. (nurofen>ibuprofen etc.) and I bet it'd be in the £Millions.
Indeed. We need, as a society, to get away from the thought that branded tablets are better. There are major NHS savings to be made there.
I had to laugh at he comment above something along the lines of "I'm sorry to hear you all have pre-schoolers who hate generic brands". Indeed!!! Best comment of the thread.

free from the doctor apparently
If you have a baby you don't even need to go to the doctor. They prescribe calpol for everything, it's a panacea you know. No point wasting the doctors time, you know they'll give you calpol so this is a deal. That's why they go to medical college for so many years. First year, learn about calpol, next years get drunk and party. It's awesome being a doctor, also if you don't know anything and you don't because you've been on the p^&s for 5 years, you just can Google it in front of the patient. Probably get about £100K a year too, brilliant.


You are correct. The Doctors do dare to open Google in front of patients and then say "Look this is what I refer to because I am not a specialist Doc".. Funny, isn't it. I said Hey Doc, Why do i need to come to you if I would have got medicines by Googling it. . NHS GPs just s**ks.
it is sold at around £3 in Asda. good price if you can find one.

that silly woman that posted that message that went viral about the minor ailments service is going to bankrupt the NHS. if you cant afford things like paracetamol and ibuprofen for your baby then perhaps you shouldn't be breeding.

Well yea children get free prescriptions, so instead of clogging up the doctor surgery when all is needed is calpol or sudocrem, it makes sense just to allow the pharmacy to give it to you free.
I agree 100% but not sure many people are aware of this.
So I take it you have to show some evidence of state benefit to qualify, ie jsa, housing or council tax benefits etc?


If you are entitled to free prescriptions (except in the case of being a minor), you are issued with a 'certificate' (which is actually a credit card sized piece off plastic with your details on it). The pharmacist would request to see that.

This is NOT only for children. I am a pharmacist, and can confirm that ANYONE who qualifies for free prescriptions can get these items on the scheme. It does depend whether or not your local area team (an NHS term meaning a group of pharmacies and GP surgeries in a particular Geographical area) is running this scheme. For instance Bedfordshire does not, but 5 miles down the road in Milton Keynes, they do.
So I take it you have to show some evidence of state benefit to qualify, ie jsa, housing or council tax benefits etc?

Although the non branded can be bought for less then £2 as a normal price.

And is probably just as effective
This is still a deal as not everyone is eligible for minor ailment scheme or has access pharmacy first etc. for those that have to buy their paracetamol it's ok price.

Although the non branded can be bought for less then £2 as a normal price.
free in scotland for under 16s on the minor ailments scheme - wont be branded calpol but generic paracetamol, ibuprofen can also be given

You wouldn't give Calpol to your child? It's one of leading pain relief paracetamol for babies and infants on the market.
There has been a lot of negative publicity about Paracetamol lately. Nothing proven, but possibly still best avoided where possible. Also a true bargaineer would just crush up the correct amount of a store-brand paracetomol tablet and dissolve in milk/juice rather than buy Calpol :)


Have you ever tried that? They don't dissolve and it tastes disgusting.

Not all doctors prescribe calpol on prescription because its costs the NHS more than the £2 on the shelf price.

I buy it when it's on offer normally Aldi so always a handy deal for me when it posted
Don't know why people keep paying for this stuff when u can get it for nothing on minor ailments or the doctor
Never ceases to amaze me how some folks expect everything to be given to them on a plate gratis. Just imagine the satifaction in paying for your own child's Calpol. Well, I thought it was worth a try.
We don't have the minor ailment scheme where I am and our doctor would never prescribe calpol. never paid more than 2.00 a bottle though
Minor ailments scheme works in England too. Have never paid for either of these meds for my daughter.

I purchased the 200ml from ASDA for £4.00

Edited By: MsChuple on Sep 11, 2014 22:05
You can you care of the chemist service for children over 12 months to get pain relief such as paracetamol and ibuprofen without having to see a GP which is also free. Yes I can and have purchased pain relief for my child but some people ain't so fortunate sadly
A doctors appointment costs the NHS £45, surely people can take responsibility for their own children and just buy some Calpol, I know this site is for people that like a good deal but you definitely do not need to make a doctors appointment to get your hands on some
Same thing but unbranded available on the free prescription service from the doctors... But for this price it saves the hassle of getting an appointment these days

Went to get some calpol from asda today. It wasn't £2 it was £3. I brought their own brand for £1.60 having 2 babies and an older child it makes more sense as their own brand goes from 3 month - 12 years whereas calpol I would need 3month to 6yrs and a 6yrs + bottle.

Where did you bring it to?

Free for any child under 16..don't get why anyone would buy it..unless its an emergency or you're a designer parent lol

Except you cant get calpol its a black list item, you must be lieing to the doctor as you seem to be stocking up, as opposed to going to the doctor when they truly need it.

Hardly designer parent when it's wasting NHS budget for the sake of some paracetamol.

Calpol is paracetamol branded,,with a bit of colour in it,,paracetamol,,thats all..a GP will prescribe a paracetamol product for general use for any under 16 hardly stocking up for when the world starts to fall apart,,just an item available to children on prescription
got 3 bottles to keep in for my 2 children as my daughter is teething atm .. my doctors are funny about prescribing things.
These threads though.
The NHS argument never fails to get an airing. Outstanding.

lol at "other ingredients"

Not the active ingredient - that's the same in all of these, and for most people (including myself) if I was buying a medicine for my own use, i'd be happy to get the supermarket own brand too.

With kids, they just sometimes won't take to a cheapo version - the taste is not so good. And once they've had that better tasting version (in this case Calpol), then it would be difficult to persuade them back to using unbranded.

Anyway, IF you do buy Calpol normally, it is a good deal. If you prefer buying the cheapest possible, then obviously it isn't! :)

Try this one with kids, good flavour. I have always given that to my daughter

I must be one of the lucky ones. I get this prescribed 2 bottles at a time! Also get kids ibuprofen by the bag load! I'm in the midlands
either your Dr feels sorry for you or wants you out the room ASAP. Either way, it is pretty chavish to make an appointment, wait in the waiting room and use up an appointment slot (costing the state £50-ish) just to save yourself 2 pounds. Good luck to you if you think this is an achievement. As a full time worker with a 3 year old and 6 month old I don't have the time, so I pay over the counter at boots.
I'll have you know I've worked since I was 15 and work full time at 34! I have a 2 year old and one in the way. I have multiple health conditions so I pay for my prescriptions although not at the moment as i am exempt and never complain. I don't have to make an appointment for calpol I simply request a repeat prescription. As my daughter was prescribed it when she was sick. So kindly keep your opinions about my lifestyle to yourself!


The question is if we all knew who you were and that you get repeat prescriptions for calculating would you still ask for it or would you get it yourself because deep down you know what you are doing is wrong and you're just playing the system. A system which was made to help those truly in need.

Yes I would still get it. There are other things my daughter needs which go out and pay for. We have to keep liquid antihistamines at all times. I buy this. She suffers with dry skin due to an intolerance I buy her lotion both of which are available on the NHS. If a condition she gets plagued with requires her to have calpol I get it from the GP. (Her child minder won't administer non prescribed medication). So yes I will whilst able to i will continue to get her liquid paracetamol from the GP.

What a splendid, fellow citizen you are. I just wish everyone was like you...

If the NHS is seen as a free buffet, some people really try to load up their plates...A prescpription like this actually costs the NHS a lot more if you include the dispensing fee the pharmacy is paid and the paperwork, not to mention the GP consultation which costs the NHS around £32.

Calpol/Paracetamol is available free on prescription so why would you buy it?

Because it's a complete waste of NHS time and money to get it 'free' from the doctor just so you can keep a bottle in the cupboard.

If a child is genuinely ill and needs to see a doctor then I agree a prescription is part of that consultation but to 'get it free on prescription' as the sole task should be banned IMO.

Heat for the deal!

how many kids do you have?

What's that got to do with anything? My opinion stands whether you have none, one, four or ten.

get your child registered with any pharmacy and get medicines on 'NHS minor ailment' scheme for free.
And people wonder why the NHS is on it's knees.

Another reason why the NHS should be killed off and people pay for all healthcare and I get a reduction on my taxes.
By the way, I have never had any benefit from NHS so far while I am paying a lot of my salary for it. However, NHS is the greatest organisation in the UK. But I agree that some regulations need to be amended like the benefits, the pensions,...etc

I wasn't suggesting that your were. The point I was making was that the NHS is abused in so many ways that the amount of money directed to services that are genuinely needed by people is reduced.

This is just one example of many

This is NOT an abuse. NHS has this scheme for children, preganent women and elderly, where instead of going to GP (who are paid by NHS), you go to your registered pharmacy and get the medicine for free.

NHS pay GPs, this scheme save NHS some money as they don't have to pay to GP instead pay for medicine (mostly generic medicines). It also saves time for GPs. I wonder, how people can abuse this, having medicine instead of food?


Here is a link if you want to have a look in detail.

http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Pharmacy/Pages/Commonconditions.aspx


It's abuse of the system because you don't need a prescription to buy this stuff. It's commonly available anywhere. So the benefit is that someone gets it for free who could and should pay for it. and the NHS foots the bill.

This is NOT an abuse. NHS has this scheme for children, preganent women and elderly, where instead of going to GP (who are paid by NHS), you go to your registered pharmacy and get the medicine for free.

NHS pay GPs, this scheme save NHS some money as they don't have to pay to GP instead pay for medicine (mostly generic medicines). It also saves time for GPs. I wonder, how people can abuse this, having medicine instead of food?


Here is a link if you want to have a look in detail.

Another thing...why is it,normally I could ride a horse over hurdles whilst balancing liquid on a spoon...not a drip will fall off - I'm steady hand Luke .....but as soon as PINK calpol goes on my spoon, it's guaranteed to drip everywhere....I can't figure it out?!

Same here, so I now use the syringe that comes with Nurofen for the Calpol as well.
I used to hate this stuff as a kid. (Always wanted the one for younger kid's that is full of sugar).
because we can afford it,leave the free prescriptions for those that cant afford it!simple!

Why do people pay for it when you can get it free on prescription?

This stuff can work out better value as it basically a higher dose of paracetamol per ml - IIRC 5ml of this is the same as 10ml of regular Calpol or supermarket own brand.

Not true, they have different strengths according to the age of your child, if you buy for the correct age there is no difference between calpol and supermarket brands, just check the mg/ml doses.

Just wondering what on earth possesed the marketing folks to think "Let's make this in sugar free" it might sell better.

Listen up, it's 4.00am, my nipper's crying, he's got a temperature, I'm knackered....it's the 6th time I've been woken up with his crying .......at this stage I don't care what's inside calpol....could be 100% neat alchohol for all I care, so sugar content really is of no concern just GET ME THE CALPOL!!!!!

Have you tried this stuff with your kids? Its so thick my kids gag on it and you could paper your walls with it.


Then the next day while your shattered from being up all night you also have to change the bedding! I always drip it lol.

I also get calpol and ibrofen on prescription as my LO suffers from migraines, so no need to buy thankfully.

Voted hot though as a good price for those who have to purchase this :-)
