We have had NHS "Calpol" and Calprofen" added to prescriptions for other medications by helpful doctors (usually women), but I wouldnt dream of going JUST to get it free.

FYI, you can get an amazing range of things on prescription if it is needed medically; we totally confused our local pharmacy by turning up with a prescription for silk underwear!!
(Our daughter was having allergic skin reactions to everything - including unbleached cotton, after developing a severe egg allergy at age 18 months)

We had already spent £150 on one set of baby grow + leggings + vest to prove its effectiveness before the doctors would prescribe it though.

Back On Topic
For those with no Wilko or Poundland, try any supermarket own brand, they are all pretty much the same.
For those with no WIlko nearby.

Poundworld does this too.

you can usually get this for free either from your gp or from the chemist.
Yes you can but some prefer not to be a drain on NHS funding and resources in effort to prolong its availability.

Agree. My GP offers both to us on free prescription for our little mite, but I and my other half say no. They're not expensive and the NHS is stretched enough as it is. Having worked in the US, I have come to appreciate our NHS even more.

It is actually paid for my the British tax payer, yes that does include you, but wouldn't that be better spent on funding medication /operations /nurses/ and doctors in the event of you or your child, God forbid, ever having a more serious illness. I am on a very tight budget, but would prefer to spend the £1 and not abuse the system.

Very true, when we've had a wee one at the quacks for genuine reasons, they have advised minor ailments. We also go straight to the pharmacy when we feel some is required.

I think you'll find getting a £1 bottle of painkiller for a kid is nothing compared to the ridiculous wastage elsewhere. Maybe if every government body sources purchases as well as HUKD members, we'd all be quids in. We use minor ailments as and when required, whilst paying way more than our due in National Insurance.

Am I misunderstanding or would you really book a GP appointment just to get some free basic medicine? Chemists have to be part of the minor ailments scheme and give things out at their discretion, so usually you have to bring a sick/symptomatic child to a pharmacist not just go stock up at your convenience.
The generic stuff is barely a couple of pounds and is practically an essential. It'll probably cost 10 times that to get a GP to give it for "free".
As long as people don't use it as an, "oh that will come in handy" source. Instead going when it is required is perfectly acceptable. However no one should book a GP appointment just to save £1.


​Costs NHS approx 80 million a year on paracetamol prescriptions, just buy it everyone can afford it adults cost about 25p a pack and kids £1 a bottle from the likes of home n bargain etc

I saw this in Sainsburys too
Watchout Sainsburys Anadin packs contain only 12 as opposed to Asda which come in 16s.

Ok I get your points about paracetamol is paracetamol but this is aspirin and cafeine too all in one for 12p for 2 tabs so I dont have to buy £1 red bull everytime I have a headache.

Agree
You can buy own brand aspirin, paracetamol and caffeine containing painkillers. Just because they're own brand doesn't make them less effective, you're paying more for the brand name, not superior drugs.
15p Paracetamol is the same thing, cold.

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?
D J Fryer
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 :-)

Poor analogy it is about reducing risk, not eliminating it altogether.Didn't think it through did you? One of them "prats" might be your friend or relative.
And you could be the person who bought the packets, Sure you;ll feel great about that..

Unless buying other stuff from the site it will be cheaper to buy at a local store taking the £3 delivery charge into affectAgree the law is stupid as if you are going to do yourself in by taking an overdose you will just got to a few different shops to buy more tablets so this "2 per person" law is stupid as not going to stop people and not a good way to go taking too many of these.
It's even more stupid than that, it's actually "2 per transaction". You can legally buy as many as you like from one shop as long as you stop and pay every 2 packs.



You're missing the point about the restriction. If someone is determined enough and pre plan they can easily buy and consume as many as they like - and that would be difficult to prevent - but that isn't the reason for the limit. The reason is that many suicide attempts are extremely spontaneous with people upset or depressed on the spur of the moment going to the med cabinet and consuming what happens to be there. Having large quantities of the same drug in the house increases that risk. This limits the damage that can do by limiting the maximum amount they are likely to consume so medics are more able to deal with the consequences and save lives.
You're missing the point of me not caring what a handful of prats might get up to.

Boo hoo tragedy etc, people hurl themselves off tall buildings and bridges should we ban them too?

please dont tell me you believed that.....oO
Umm, of course not haha.......ha.....ha...ahem :{

As for the deal, great if you were already ordering something, but it's just to get people to buy from the site as they sell Paracetamol's quite cheap anyway, last time i think i got them for 25p. Hot nonetheless! :D

Most pharmacies will not sell 100 tablets either.
Best is to go to Tesco self-service checkout and see if they all go through (Asda flag up more than 2 packets), if not undertake multiple transactions at the self-service checkout. No human intervention. Great!
According to this study ordinary Panadol tablets take 45 minutes to get to maximum concentration of paracetamol in the blood. Effervescent (dissolvable) tablets take 27 minutes. If time is critical, effervescent tablets represent better value.

To clarify, our “nanny-government here” says paracetamol can only come in packs of up to 16 outside of a pharmacy however up to 100 tablets can be sold at once. You won’t find anywhere other than a pharmacy who would be willing to sell that many though. Interestingly, effervescent tablets have no maximum amount that can be sold and can come in pack sizes up to 30 outside a pharmacy.

Twice the speed of what?

1 minute compared to 2 minutes?
15 seconds compared to 30 seconds?
1 millisecond compared to 2 millseconds?


What are the figures?

Get real?

Does 15 seconds really matter? You spend more than that time getting the tables out.
Remember, if you have to dissolve a tablet you have to wait, you don't wait when you swallow a tablet. You have to wait until it dissolves in your gut. That does not take long!

Why pay 4x-5x the price for a brand name?

Some people are "thick"!

Ask your pharmacist.


I would assume it's all relative due to drugs affecting each person in different ways.

Looks like someone has a headache! :whistling:

Have you analysed the medical data or the independent studies?
Where are the results that prove that these work much faster than generic paracetamol or generic dispersible paracetamol? How much faster? Milliseconds or hours?
Does it occur to you that the active ingredients are the same as generic paracetamol? People on the forum may want to know these are a waste of money. Why pay 10 times the price for the same active ingredients? Hence the posting is highlighting how ignorant the public can be. If you don't like the posting, ignore it. Not everyone is so "thick" they blindly accept claims without quantifying the exact meaning.
Pharmaceutical companies make massive profits through the ignorance of "Joe Public".

Perhaps everyone should by a Ferrari as it accelerates from 0-60 faster than family cars.
But does the extra 5-10 seconds really matter? It's an analogy.

As for Panadol Plus, these are not just paracetamol, so you cannot compare the products.


Well they work for me if its so hard for you to understand.

I'll leave you to spend your precious time dissecting every minor detail to do with this product.

They work for me as well as a lot of other people i know, and better than the tesco's own ones so this is all the proof i need.

If they work for someoen better than other paracetamol then i cant see where your argument comes in. Why not contact Panadol and see what they have to say.

99p for 14 tablets hardly seems like a rip off.
stevey_p7;4656621
Hey i am only quoting what is mentioned on the back of every packet.

No i am not thick and yes these work really well.

If your going to comment please put something worth reading in furute instead of moaning about something that frankly nobody is bothered about.

These are a fast acting way to get rid of headaches and i use these along with Panadol Extra to relieve the stress of 4 night turns.

Just keep your thoughts to yourself unless you have something useful to contribute.
