Product details

As children get older their needs can change. That's why Calpol have created CALPOL® SIXPLUS™ Fastmelts. The only dissolve-in-the-mouth tablet with a fruity strawberry flavour, to provide on-the-go pain relief for kids 6 years and over. It's not always convenient to carry liquid pain relief that can be messy to dispense. So Calpol have designed Fastmelts to be convenient to carry around and easy to use. Great when your travelling and on the go.

They're formulated with more than twice the strength of infant paracetamol to provide effective, soothing relief from pain and fever and start to work on fever in just 15 minutes, whilst being gentle on your child's tummy. Colour and sugar free. CONTAINS PARACETAMOL. View Calpol SixPlus Fast Melts Patient Information Leaflet Here

    My nephew can't swallow tablets very well so these are his go to pain killers for headaches etc. Also good for children when you're out and about, as opposed to liquid Calpol!
