Calpol Six Plus contains a small dose of a common painkiller called paracetamol - 250mg per 5ml.
While the exact mechanism of paracetamol is not fully understood, paracetamol is effective at relieving mild pain, such as tension headaches and earache, and reducing fevers which often occur during bouts of the flu.
The recommended dosage of Calpol Six Plus depends upon the age of the child.
Calpol Six Plus should not be given to children under 6 years old. If your child is under 6, Calpol Infant may be more suitable. Ask a doctor or pharmacist for advice.
|Children under 6 years||Not recommended|
|6 - 8 years||5ml up to 4 times in 24 hours|
|8 - 10 years||7.5ml up to 4 times in 24 hours|
|10 - 12 years||10ml up to 4 times in 24 hours|
Before giving Calpol to your child, make sure to shake the bottle for 10 seconds before measuring out the required dose.

If you are using Sachets, massage the sachet to mix the medicine before administering it to your child.
