Panadol is a well trusted pain reliever here in Australia. It is a very effective medication that provides temporary relief from fever and pain that is related to teething, headache (even migraine), immunisation, ear ache and colds and flu symptoms.
Children's Panadol is highly recommended for children 12 years and younger. I never run out of Panadol in my medicine cabinet. I always make sure that I buy a new one before I finish the one I have at home. As a parent it is worrisome when the kids feel sic, have fever or complaining from pain or headache. Panadol gives me the assurance that my kid will feel better in just a short moment. The fact that Panadol helps get rid of my kids pain and fever makes me feel better too as a mom because I know that I am giving my kids the right medication that they need for immediate relief.
In case of fever, I administer Panadol to my kids every 5-6 hours until the fever goes away, or as advised by our family doctor when kids have influenza.
Panadol is very effective and yet very gentle to stomachs. My kids love the colorfree suspension with fruity yummy flavor.
Update On Jun 05, 2010: Yesterday I bought another bottle of Panadol because there was just a little left at home. My daughter came from school with severe headache a day earlier and she consumed 3 dosages until yesterday morning. I went to the pharmacy and I got a 100ml-bottle at only $10.50 which is 50cents cheaper than the usual price. As a bonus, the pharmacy also gave me a Panadol CD entitled "Soothing Sounds" with a cute cleeping baby dragon design on the cover. They say the soothing music in the CD will help ease child's pain and anxiety. The CD contains 8 tracks including the music of Beethoven- Symphony No. 6, Clair De Lune Moonlight, Sheep May Safely Graze, Concerto in G Major, Last Spring, The Messiah, and Piano Concerto No. 2 and 5. What a great gift to a loyal consumer like me!
