Does it make your baby/child go hyperactive? Miss E was uber hyper last night for 4 hours (even dancing at double time). I asked the pharmacist if she had heard of this and she looked at me like I was crazy.

No it doesn't have that effect on my 2 at all. It makes them happier because I generally don't give it to them unless they're in pain or unwell so it makes them feel better.
It's interesting though.…… hope someone has some experience for you :-)

Nope can't say it's had that effect on either of my kids. If anything it makes them sleepy.

YEP sure does and Panadol to. BUT ...... I thought it was more because it takes their pain away which then makes them return to their happy chappy self.
When I give DD Panadol before bed ONLY when teething is at a peak she takes forever to sleep because she is so hyper.
Hmmm interesting would love to see other replies.

I was going to say yep, would most likely be the colour as colours are most definately known for hyperactive reactions. Even quite sick children can be running around and acting very hyper and just plain weird from colours.
But I saw you used the colourfree. I would say it was the flavour they use. I just checked the ingredients on the website and it just says ingredients are the ibuprofen but its in strawberry or orange flavour. Goodness knows what the flavour is actually made out of.
