Bring back the plastic plug

Impossible to use without the plastic plug. I just spilt about half a bottle trying to measure it Show details

Disappointing change of bottle

Dymadon was my go to. Other brands cherry vanilla flavour is revolting.
However I just can’t fathom why they would get rid of the plastic stopper. WHAT A MESS AND A WASTE. We use nurofen for everything now. Show details

Disappointing change to a great product

This has been my go-to pain relief brand for my baby since she was born however the last few bottles I have purchase have been without the syringe insert which enables you to draw the medicine into the syringe. What is further infuriating is this is still shown on the box as an ‘easy dosing method’ however it’s actually messy and causes wasted product especially when you’re getting down to the last few doses in the bottle. To be honest I’d pay whatever the extra cost is to have it back if that’s the reason behind it being changed. Please bring it back!

False advertising, no easy dosing device

This used to be a great product until the dosing stopper was removed. So much mess and product waste now. Not happy Show details

No easy dose plug on top despite packaging and website showing there is

Packaging carton shows an easy dose lid, where you can insert the syringe and draw the dose out.
Dymadon website shows the same.
The actual product just has a normal lid, so it makes a mess, and a lot of medicine is wasted in the process of trying to fill the syringe.
It seems to be pot luck as to whether the bottle has the easy dose lid or not.
Poor quality control for a pharmaceutical product, and will never buy again Show details

No more plug. Can you get more greedy

They have changed the packaging to no longer include a plug. They promise this does not change the effectiveness (because why would it?) but it does change convenience. I now leave about 1/5 of the bottle because it is impossible to get. Will be moving away Show details

My daughter takes this willingly and it works well, but I've taken off 3 stars for the fact they've decided (in their infinite wisdom) to remove one of the best features- the thing that sits in the lid so you can stick the syringe in there and tip the bottle upside down. It meant mess-free dosing and no waste. But now its a messy and wasteful exercise, which means less value for money. Very disappointing and ill be switching back to nurofen. Show details

Loving the applicator

This used to come in a plain bottle so even if you used a syringe you'd waste a lot because it's quite viscous and syringes never reach to the bottom. The newer packaging is more like Nurofen (invert the bottle to draw into syringe), great improvement!
Sometimes I'd prefer a plastic bottle (tile floors) but you can't have everything.

Ideal for babies

Bought panadol because my 8 month old was sick - no go, she puked it up straight away and hated us for hours.

Looked online and asked the pharmacist. Bought Dymadon - went down like a treat, stayed down and mostly importantly worked.

Panadol is going in the bin... Show details

Kids hate it but I like the price

I love that there is another option to panadol since all the marketing we see as parents is panadol panadol panadol. This is cheaper and just as effective. Only issue is my kids hate it, I can’t get them to take this. Not sure if it’s because they’ve been bought up on panadol, but the flavour is definitely heavier or stronger or something. Show details

It's ok but it's not as strong

Better flavour however it's half the strength per mL compared to Panadol and most generics so I have to battle trying to get my son to take twice the amount of liquid. Good if your child likes the flavour but my baby boy fusses either way so I'd rather struggle with 1.5mL not 3.

Best paracetamol out there

Tastes SO much better than that awful vanilla cherry flavor Panadol and most generics use, finally I can get my daughter to take it without a battle every time. Also costs less which is a bonus, and the dosing device is easy to use. Highly recommend this product to anyone struggling to get their little one to take Panadol. My daughter actually asks for more!

Cost effective and good taste

Dymadon literally costs half the price of it's competitors because the dosage needed is less than the others.

Tried Panadol and my daughter hated the flavour. Dymadon is always easy to administer (although need to convince her she doesn't need more) and tastes much nicer.

Worth a try if Panadol isn't readily accepted.

Questions & Answers


When's the dosing stopper coming back? You're going to lose your most marketable feature, and a bunch of customers. This can't seriously be a cost savings measure?!

Why don’t they come with the plastic stopper anymore?

I also threw my last bottle of before getting a new one sans plug. What was the reason?


My dymadon bottle doesn’t have the plug/stopper that you’re meant to put the syringe into so you can tip the bottle upside down. I’m guessing it’s still ok to use and I just draw the correct dosage upwards into the syringe as I obviously can’t tip the bottle upside down as it would all pour out?
