Do any of you buy this as a precaution to your kids being ill. Ofcourse when your kids are ill cost is not an issue but do you wait for your child to get unwell before having this in. Hope your kids don't get a fever in the night. Also do you know how stretched our precious nhs is. You are not entitled to it anything, our collective tax pays for it. Go buy it for a £1 and save the NHS £5+. Honestly some of the comments on here are disgusting. The OP is obviously more mindful than any of the opinionated and uneducated on here.

Yeah, let's waste more of the NHS's money! Why spend a quid when you can scrounge it for free?

Do you think branded paracetamol will reduce their temp or their pain more effectively? Or earn you more parent points?

My wife took 2 of our kids to the GP last week together. He prescribed some lotion for one of them and told her to go buy Calpol for the both of them.

Agree with your point completely, but did YOU have to do it in such an opinionated way yourself? And what makes you so certain that those we disagree with are "uneducated". Attack their argument not them personally.

Calpol on prescription,
No wonder the NHS is drowning in debt

Just give them Whisky, that will send them straight to sleep. A double with water should do the trick, doesn't need to be expensive whisky any cheap stuff will do. They will sleep all night and not keep waking you up coughing and crying.

Works with my two kids anyway!

If your child is 6+ they can have half a paracetamol tablet - same ingredients/ dose as this but without the sugar / sweeteners / colours /flavourings. At approx 20p a pack, they're cheaper too.

Of course if your child won't swallow a tablet, then this medicine is cheaper than Calpol and does the same job.

I'll stick to giving them Alcohol, it will get there bodies used to it if nothing else

Cheers, I ve voted hot and picked up two bottles today. I paid £2.69 for similar product few weeks ago....having kids who are always picking up some school illness, ear ache, temperature, tooth ache.....I ve always got some available at home! Thanks
