Combining Children’s Panadol with other paracetamol products

It’s important that you do not give your child or baby any other medicines that contain paracetamol at the same time as Children’s Panadol (for example, many common cold and flu medicines may contain paracetamol), as this could cause a paracetamol overdose. Always check the ingredients listed on the product label of any other medication before use alongside Children’s Panadol, and consult a health professional before using any medication alongside Panadol.
