What happened, Misdee? What does it say on the side of the Calpol box? If she's still in pain, I'd carry on with it, with the dose recommended. Which of the DD's is it?

Oh, the poor little monkey. She must be in agony. Here's from the Calpol website Best wishes. (BTW from your AN group, i have Sylvia the same age as S.)

Ouch! It'll probably hurt for a good few days more.

GI would advise to gradually reduce it down to an as-needed dose in 3-4 days' time.

misdee Tue 02-Sep-08 18:06:25
