Description

Calpol SixPlus Sugar Free Suspension Strawberry Flavour is a reliable and widely recognized over-the-counter medication that addresses the discomfort of pain and fever in children aged 6 years and older. Developed with utmost care and adherence to stringent safety standards, this oral suspension is a go-to solution for parents and caregivers seeking effective relief for their children. The formulation of Calpol SixPlus has been meticulously designed to provide gentle yet potent relief from mild to moderate pain and fever, commonly stemming from conditions like colds, flu, and post-immunization reactions.

The hallmark of Calpol SixPlus lies not only in its efficacy but also in its user-friendly presentation. Each box contains conveniently packaged single-use sachets, each containing 5ml of the sugar-free strawberry-flavored suspension. This thoughtful design not only ensures accurate dosing but also eliminates the need for measuring cups or spoons, simplifying the administration process.

This exceptional formulation is underpinned by the active ingredient paracetamol, a stalwart in the realm of pain relief and fever reduction. Each 5ml sachet contains 250mg of paracetamol, expertly calibrated to provide optimal relief while minimizing the risk of adverse effects. Paracetamol is widely recognized for its ability to alleviate pain and reduce fever by acting on certain areas of the brain responsible for temperature regulation and pain perception. This mode of action makes Calpol SixPlus an effective remedy for the discomfort and distress often associated with childhood illnesses.
