    If you read the op, she was sick/teething when it first happened then the OP gave her a small dose to see if it happened again. Panadol is a class a non addictive drug. She was just trying to see if there was another reaction or if the reaction seen previously was to do with illness or teething. I don't see a problem.

    I was just trying to see if it was the panadol or something else... Both doses were much smaller (and still with the same "side effect")

    My son had 2 severe reactions to infant panadol. We didn't know which ingredient he reacted to so we were advised not to use any. Well yesterday my son was very sick and while in emergency the decision was made to give panadol suppositry under medical supervision. He had a temp of 42 that nurofen wasn't breaking. He didn't react to it all. Due to some common ingredients in nurofen , zyrtec and panadol we have concluded its the flavour he reacted to. And apparently its very common.
