Nurofen

published

Nurofen syrup must taste good because when bub isn't feeling well he will willingly take the syringe from me and suck this liquid down. The syringe is easy to use and you must invert the bottle, making it easier to get the contents out of the bottom. It has a safety cap making this bottle effectively child proof. It's age range is much larger than other brands and slightly more cost effective. It's been a great product for our family.

Purchased in at Chemist Warehouse Online Store.

Syringe Size Stinks!

published

Syringe size is too small. Any child over 1 needs multiple syringes of Nurofen. Why not make a larger syringe? Is it news that children fight taking medicine? Works well once it's in.

Worked ok for us

published

Worked ok for us when our child was advised to take some from the Professionals, Health Direct.
The medicine worked within about 20 minutes and lasted for around 6 hours so we were happy.
The only issue was that it seems pricey and we couldn't find any alternative brands for comparison and when you
need something fast you don't have time to browse.

Much better than Panadol

published

This is our go-to for fevers in our baby daughter, it tastes amazing and she loves it! It tastes like strawberry marshmellow, some adults we spoke to even prefer Nurofen for Children rather than the adult pills. The included syringe is easy to use, and cools her temps from 39 to 37 in 15 minutes!

Devastated

published

My young fella has taken medicine well in the past and all of a sudden he is avoiding it with a vengeance? After trying to get him to take some Nurofen for Children last night and getting it spilled all over us, I had a taste and was furious to find that it tasted spicy hot as if it had pepper or tobasco added to it. Is this a cruel joke? I feel like the worst mother ever now for making my son take this to feel better, thanks a lot!

My preferred choice of pain relief medication

published

I love this product! It works fast, it tastes great and the syringe plunger is so much easier to use than a dropper or any other dosing device. You don't have to hold the children down to get them to take it! It's easy to clean as well. I was a bit skeptical about giving Nurofen to a child. Had heard it can be a bit strong for little tummies but given on a full stomach, I have had no such problems with it!
Everything!

Half the strength of baby nurofen

published

Nurofen for kids 1-5 years is half the strength of baby nurofen and so twice the volume is required in a dose. What the...?!?! The syringe isn't big enough to hold a single dose (9mL) for my 16 month old son. A traumatic experience for all of us, we won't be repeating it.
If you can get it into them, it does work
Very difficult to administer a dose; half the strength of baby nurofen

Love love love this product!

Trusted name, trusted ingredient, easy to dispense, great taste & it works! What more could you ask for!!

To all those that are worried about the potential for stomach ulcers, if you give it as it is recommended you shouldn't have any problems. Any drug - including paracetamol, will have potential side effects if not taken as recommended.
It works great & is easy to dispense.

Nurofen is a great product as it gives long lasting pain relief. I find it very effective for teething pain and it helps my kids to sleep through the night when they have sore gums. The dosing guide is very easy to use and just uses the child's weight in the range. It's a pleasant taste and my kids never refuse nurofen due to it's taste unlike some other brands.
Pleasant taste
Easy to measure dose in the syringe
Childproof lock
Fast acting to provide pain relief
Easy to use guide on which does to give for weight
Nothing I can think of

Kids like the taste and easy to measure the dose, I even use the syring for other medications such as anti biotics, as they get the whole amount unlike measuring cups where half the dose stays in there.Reasonably priced and a great product.
great for all the family
Havn't found any so far.

Good flavour (well, my child likes it), easy to use and delivers fast, effective pain relief. I love the nurofen syringe. I actually use that to dose a variety of other products (vitamins, fish oil). My daughter will take just about anything as long as it comes out of the nurofen syringe
Very effective for more intense pain and quite good for fevers. I use this only when panadol doesn't give relief as I am a bit cautious of overusing ibuprofen.

Easy to use syringe and no spill bottle.
It is a very small bottle for the price. I have had the no spill stopper come off a few times making it tricky to dose.

I love the opening to this product. I love that it is practically spill proof, and the way you get the medication out of the bottle. I really think someone was thinking when they designed it.
I also loved how quickly it worked and how easy it was to get my child to take the orange flavour.
It works quickly to relieve any pain and discomfort. Tastes great, and has a very easy to use syringe.
My child has a bleeding disorder so we have been advised not to give her ibuprofen.
