The expensive brands of paracetamol and ibuprofen are just cashing in on peoples ignorance. The active indigent is identical.

It's not just 'ignorance' believe it or not. Years ago I used to tell people this all the time and I would often get the reply, ''oh but Calpol' is obviously much better quality and I wouldn't give my baby that cheap stuff'. So it's not just clothing brands people can be snobbish about, even medicine has to have the right name to grace their shopping basket.

You can antihistamines to that list as well. (and doubtless numerous others)

Haven't bought branded over the counter drugs for years now. Complete waste of money.

To be honest, I'm not too bothered whether it's branded or non branded either, as long as the stuff works on my child! I didn't see the unbranded Morrisons version so got this instead.

Me neither, and remember folks, before this was invented, your mother would grind a simple paracetemol tablet with 2 spoons and mix it with milk or juice for a child.

rated hot....since I've just had a kid i know how helpful this will come in

or a tot of whisky on your dummy ie in scotland we call it calpol night to this day

Nurofen is simply a product name for Ibuprofen,

However not all versions of Nurofen as the same and act in different ways
Extra strength, contains codeine (related to morphine)
Fast acting, is a dihydrate form of ibuprofen
Another version contains a decongestant etc etc

Sometimes it is worth paying that little extra. (In this case a good brand will probably taste a little better, importantr when trying to get a little one to swallow it)

Yip, which is why Scotland has a drink problem I guess. I was an alcoholic by the time I was 3.

Guy's no one has to pay for this or other over the counter medications for your kids... Just ask for it via care of the chemist at any pharmacy and it's free regardless of income.
If you want to know what's included ask for a list includes things for nappy rash to sore throats etc etc.

clare hope

Care of the Chemist is regional (ie depends on your PCT if they offer it of not). Also, very few chemist offer it, and many require a doctor's surgery referral first. I guess just talk to your chemist and see.

True, but Boots, for example, do their own brand of Paracetamol with Codeine, decongestant, and probably fast acting versions too. I bet the pound shop has an equally good selection. The big brands of pain killers, much like the big battery brands are charging massive premiums for the name.
