You are easily fooled John
It has no sedative properties
Pain killer yes
Sedative no

I have already stated that Calpol is not a sedative?  However it encourages sleep by relieving pain!!

Whether the McCann's used drugs or not, remains unknown.

Witnesses do not always tell the truth.

The use of Calpol with children is common place.

I've never heard of an adult using it, as a painkiller.

Don't understand what you mean when you say 'never heard of an adult using it as a painkiller'    an adult would use Paracetamol or another pain killer for adults.

Can anyone believe that the McCann's would give an overdose of Calpol to their children?   A build up of Paracetemol in the liver is very dangerous and can cause a very painful death.

There was no sign that the McCann's children were being drugged,  they were not sluggish at nursery or the Nannies would have reported it.

That Lace was my point.

Adults don't use Calpol.

Was there Calpol in the apartment where the Mccanns stayed ?

..and we don't know if the McCann's children were drugged or sedated, do we ?
The McCanns were solely responsible for their childcare arrangements and there is no one else to blame.

S and S, two more amateurs making money from a disappeared child, and clearly without a clue.

Correct in detail, but the essential point is that the drug has no sleep-inducing properties.

Actually, one of two essential points: the other, that the McCanns did not use calpol on that holiday (even though they had it with them).

Some people have difficulty swallowing pills/capsules and will use Calpol instead. My grand daughteer is one such person.  She is a teenager but I can forsee that she will have to continue this into adulthood.

Misty is right.

Paracetamol is paracetamol: an identical drug sold in packages of doses that vary, along with the name.

Adult paracetamol has 500 milligrams of active ingredients per tablet; the identical preparation for children, a much lower dose for each measure of liquid.

What about soluble Paracetemal, is your grand daughter able to take that?

If Paracetemal made you sleepy it would say 'do not operate machinery'  as it does on antihistamine tablets.

To stop them being moody or irritable?

I rather think doctors would be better-informed.
