Yeah, ethanol = alcohol
This particular one from b&m contains ethanol
I'd check ingredients, I think I was once given this as a calpol alternative at a chemist, however, contained alcohol, and couldn't give it to my little boy as he has a liver disease.

Could be a different brand, but always worth a check.
Great choice of name.... not
Although it's cherry and Calpol is strawberry.

A great price for what is an extortionate product.

We have been using these when our daughter develops a blocked nose, but have recently baulked at the cost when they became hard to track down for less than £6.

We replaced them with a cheap ultrasonic diffuser for around £11 and find that 10 drops of essential oil or Olbas oil is enough for a full night of pleasant vapours

Not just Nurofen most other medicine. Unless you buy one that’s still under protection there probably isn’t one that doesn’t have a generic version. Take cold tablets just read the ingredient list compare products they will either be the same exactly only difference could be the percentage of the active ingredients but pick up another packet and it could have exactly the same or even more.

youre welcome
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

I'll stick to giving them Alcohol, it will get there bodies used to it if nothing else
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.
Edited by: "madtrekker" 28th Apr 2017
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!

why not just get it free from your GP on a prescription?



Because it probably costs more to the NHS than £1.69

Do you go to the GP if you want a 15p pack of paracetamol?

Of course theres also the fact I would rather pay £1 than ring to make an app, go to the GP, sit around waiting to be seen, be seen, come out, go to chemist, go home.

Sorry to be blunt but what is your point? Many discoveries have been … Sorry to be blunt but what is your point? Many discoveries have been accidental. Viagra was originally meant to be used to treat high blood pressure, now look at it. The safety of aspartame has been proven many times so whatever happened in the US almost half a century ago isn't really relevant particulalry when it's been found safe by multiple independent organisations such as the WHO and FSA. As I mentioned with the Pepsi example, they removed it and put it back and there is public concern with it for no real reason. It seems to be one of those internet "urban myths" that just won't seem to subside. The EFSA carried out a thorough re-evaluation of it's safety because of public concern and found it to be safe, again. These companies would be replacing one artificial sweetener with another, I doubt it will significantly increase sales and profit with Pepsi's venture being a good example but who knows. Companies reformulating, which happens all the time anyway, is not evidence of an issue in my opinion.



What does the body do when it rejects something? You are sick or go to the toilet a lot.

The fact that most artificially sweetened products carry a 'laxative effect' warning might suggest that your body is trying rid of it out of the system.

The scientist accidentally touched food and found had a sweet taste. It was rushed through in the US into food as the money and profit potential from a zero calorie sweetener was realised. Some big brand supermarkets banned aspartame from the own brand versions of their food due to conducting research among their customers. Big brand drinks companies have also started to replace aspartame with sucralose.

If anything, because both are artificial sweeteners anyway, I suspect … If anything, because both are artificial sweeteners anyway, I suspect costs/profit margins factor are the reason, not an admittance or proof it's bad or should be removed from sale etc. Pepsi recently removed aspartame from their Diet version in the USA because they thought that's what their customers wanted as sales were dropping. According to their CEO:"“If you go and poll consumers today and read all the social media reports, there’s still trepidation about aspartame,” said Nooyi. “There’s no scientific reason for that, but people are somehow worried about aspartame.” - I blame the internet. However sales continued to drop even quicker so they soon reversed the decision and and brought back the "Classic" Diet Pepsi so they can satisfy more customers.

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!
