Nurofen For Children Orange
Advantages: Takes away pain, fast acting, children love it
This has got to be the best most effective medicine on the market. It is a known fact that children do not have a fully formed immune system until they are 5 years old so they will suffer from cold after cold. You can keep taking them to the doctor and they will just advise that it is teeth cutting or a general cold that is causing the symptoms and to give them childrens paracetamol.
I used bottle after bottle of medicin with my first child he must have had a cold every week but nothing that I used seemed to help him. Have you every tried to give them medicine from a spoon at a young age? How hard is it?
I visited my local pharmacy who advised me to try this brand Nurofen it hadn't long been on the market so I decided to give it a go since nothing else was working. It came in two flavours orange and strawberry, due to using strawberry flavourd paracetamol with him I was sure he would take this better.
The dosage of this medicine is lower that the paracetamol brands due to it containing Ibrobuphen which is stronger than paracetamol. It also came in bottle which in the top there is a plug that doesnt let the medicin run out and will fit a suringe that is supplied in the pack to be able to admininster the medication.
The advantage to this administer is that the child is so taken by this unusual thing that they will just pop it in their mouth and down it goes. When they get older though they like to do it for themselves that can get messy.
I have accidently picked up the wrong flavour at times but my children do not seem to mind which one they have now and will refuse to take any medicine from a spoon now. I have also tried the sachets which do come with spoons but there is 5ml in each pack so when they are able to take that ammount I give them that sachet and the suck it all out themselves.
It has bought my childrens high temperatures down very quickly and helped them sleep at night eventhough it is non drowsy. They have usually been jumping around like normal within 3 to 5 days, they haven't cried as much and managed to have a good nights sleep which they need when they are ill.
I would recomend this to any parent with a child who suffers with colds or sever teething problems. It will cost around £3.59 from pharmacy and you do not have to ask the pharmacist for it in may places it will be on a shelf for you to pick up.
