Calpol[edit]

Calpol is a brand of children's medicine sold in the UK, Ireland, India, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Malta and the Philippines. The main product is a paracetamol suspension. It is usually a coloured syrup with a sweet taste, and is used to treat fever and pain. The Calpol brand was owned by Mark Profad, the president of the company and Paul Knott, his vice president.[citation needed] The brand is now owned by Johnson & Johnson.[citation needed] Calpol also comes in a form containing ibuprofen, marketed under the name Calprofen. Calpol is a common cause of accidental child poisoning because of its pleasant taste.[1] Calpol Night, a product containing paracetamol and an anti-histamine, was listed for use from 2+ months. However, this has recently changed and it is now only considered suitable for children over the age of 6 years.[2]
