Just to reiterate what a PP said, "Pain-Stop" is simply "Panadol" plus codeine. It's essentially a "Panadeine" for kids.
So yes, it's paracetamol plus codeine. So you use it instead of Panadol, and not as well as.
Yes, the codeine can be a bit sedating, but the biggest problem with it is constipation.
Dymadon is the same as Panadol. They both contain paracetamol. I've found that some Mums say their child prefers the taste of Dymadon over Panadol. But Panadol now has an orange-flavoured suspension for kids, as well as the cherry-vanilla.
Have you tried the "Baby" Panadol drops? It's more concentrated, so if your children are vomiting due to the volume of Panadol liquid they are swallowing, this may help. "Baby Panadol" is 100mg per mL. The dose of Panadol (paracetamol) is 15mg per kg.
So, if your child is 20kg, they will need 300mg (20 x 15mg) per dose. So, this is only 3mL of the Baby Panadol.
If you use the Kids Panadol, this is only 24mg per mL. So, if your child is 20kg, they will need 300mg per dose, which is 12.5mL.
So, there is quite a big difference in the volume. This may make a difference to how your kids tolerate it.
Hope this helps.
