    Default Dymadon vs Panadol

    Is there a difference? Last night I was talking to the pharmacy assistant, as Milo refuses to take infant panadol.

    She said he's old enough for the 1-5, and that it came in 2 flavours, but that all panadol tastes horrible, and he might like Dymadon better as the flavour is nicer.



    So is dymadon essentially the same as panadol?
    Does anyone use it?

    Yep they are both paracetamol - which means that their active ingredients are identical... - you may just have to double check the quantities to give for the different brand - because one brand might be more concentrated than the other.

    Thanks!
    I didn't even know dymadon existed til yesterday, I thought there was only panadol or neurofen (and we won't use ibuprofen).

    Lets hope that he likes it!

    Hi Rayray... as everyone else has said there isn't a difference.... my daughter hates the taste of panadol but loves the chemist own panadol (which is cheaper but obviously the cost doesn't matter at all)

    I just get the chemits own version and it seems better tasting. My DD#2 has a passion for Demazin syrup!! Every time she has the hint of a cold she insists she needs Demazin LOL
