Give your child effective relief from pain or fever with Panadol Chewable Tablets for kids aged three years and older – a child-friendly form of chewable Panadol that’s perfect for little ones who either can’t or don’t like to swallow regular tablets.

Whether your child is suffering from a headache, earache or a fever, paracetamol (the active ingredient in Panadol Chewable Tablets) works to relieve pain and reduce fever.

Paracetamol reduces fever in toddlers and young children for up to six hours, and also helps to relieve pain caused by:

  • Teething
  • Immunisation
  • Earache
  • Headache
  • Cold and flu symptoms

Panadol Chewable Tablets can be easily dissolved in the mouth without the use of water, making it a great pain relief option for active little ones when they’re out and about. What’s more, this special form of chewable Panadol is perfect for children who don’t like – or who aren’t able – to swallow regular tablets.
