    Ds is quite ill, temp and miserable.

    He cant have another dose of nurofen til 6.30 pm and HATES panadol, i recon he just spat half of what i gave back at me.

    How did you get your 2 y/o to take oral panadol?

    DD has a little cold and we gave her some panadol last night. I would estimate we got about 50% success rate but it still worked and bought her temp down so she could sleep more comfortably.

    Both kids have been excellent with taking medicine.
    I just keep saying good boy/girl over and over again and they take it. Or I count to three. On three they open and I squirt it in.
    My son just turned 2 and is currently on antibiotics twice a day all I have to do is tell him it's medicine time and he goes to the fridge to get it.

    Panadol does taste revolting ... I use dymadon instead for my kids ... It's cheaper, has a yummier taste and is still paracetamol

    Try the chemists own brand of panadol. My ds refuses panadol but loves any generic brand of paracetamol

    I always use the Nurofen syringe. Otherwise I can't get it in. I put it in the childs mouth at the corner and push the syringe alongside the cheek, then squirt. Better success rate that way.

    Thanks for your replies,
    We use chemist brand panamax.

    Will look into tablets, as a small child i would spit liquid medicine but was happy to chew a tablet up.

    Took ds to see a doctor, its just a virus.
