    I'm pretty sure it's okay because nurofen doesn't contain paracetamol

    Hope she feels better soon x

    She had her tonsils out yesterday and is in a bit of pain. But She refused the pain stop earlier and the nurses said to give her nurofen if she would take that. I didnt think to ask if i can give her the pain stop at bedtime.

    Oh poor thing!
    Yeah like I said I'm pretty sure nurofen and PainStop are okay.
    You just cant give PainStop and panadol/paracetamol.

    Maybe just ring nurse on call if you want to be double sure

    Absolutely you can. DD has them both for acute tonsillitis and also for her recent HFM. Nurofen is ibuprofen and painstop is paracetamol based with a little codiene.


    Brain, brain, gone away, will come back another day.

    Painstop is the baby version of panadeine - it contains paracetamol and codeine, and the night version also contains an antihistamine to help with sleep.

    Nurofen contains ibuprofen - which does not share any ingredients in common with painstop, and works in a different way. It's fine to 'piggyback' them (use them at the same time) if you're following dosage advices and ensuring that you're not giving them too frequently.

    Absolutely it's ok. Just a tip tho, painstop tastes awful so if she definitely won't take it, panadol is better than nothing, hope she's feeling better

    Thanks ladies.
    I managed to get her to take a bit of pain stop so she could get some sleep last night.
