Medised is an over-the-counter pain and fever relief medicine for children in a liquid form. Another mum recommended it to me years ago when my son was only a baby. I told her how I had to struggle every time I gave him Calpol to ease his teething, as he didn't like the taste and I always had to force it down his throat, which used to upset both of us. She told me her daughter was the same with Calpol but that she really liked the taste of Medised and would eagerly take it as if it was a treat. I was a bit sceptical, but had nothing to lose except for a few quid, so I headed for the pharmacy and bought a bottle of the stuff. To my complete amazement, my son readily .

Medised is an infant paracetamol suspension with an added antihistamine (diphenhydramine). The paracetamol part does the usual things - pain-relief, brings down a fever and so on. The antihistamine deals with cold symptoms - it helps with a blocked or runny nose. It also has the wonderful side effect of making your child sleepy. It is sugarfree, which is a shame, as the main disadvantage of this medicine is the taste - they do not like it! It is also colourless, which is useful when they spit it back out again. It is for 3 months up to 12 years, although you'd need to give quite a lot to a 12-year-old. It comes in ... Read the complete review

A good friend of mine advised me to use Medised when my son had an undiagnosed bowel problem and seemed to be permanently in pain, Calpol didn't seem to do the job alone, neither did Nurofen so I went out and bought my first bottle. Now even though my little boys problems are sorted I still make sure we have some in the house! It doesn't have the best taste but it works, also it can be added to a little water if baby won't take it off a spoon. It helps the pain and also helps them get their much needed sleep. I recommend it to many parents, my neighbours daughter was quite poorly one evening and so I passed her some over and converted her too. It isn't overly expensive .. Read the complete review

After many months of teething and sleepless nights relying on calpol and nurofen I was advised of medised and i took the plunge. Medised contains paracetamol(calpol) but also an antihistamine to help your child to sleep. To be honest I was a little dubious as whether to use it or not because it can cause drowsiness and didnt want to be seen as drugging my child. So I used it cautiously. It brought his temperature down brilliantly and although he had the odd niggle slept a lot better. I wont use it frequently and it didnt seem to make him sluggish or tired looking. It is only suitable for children over 3 months and costs aroud £4.90ish. I find its worth it though if only . Read the complete review
