Calmolin
An educational psychologist has advised me to put my 5 year old on Calmolin. Is there something else which I can give him which is a bit more child friendly. I am lead to believe that it is a fairly large capsule.

Carla,

Calmolin is an excellent product and I'd avise you to try it. In children under 6 years of age who cannot swallow the Calmolin capsule, it can be snipped open and the contents of the capsule (white paste) removed. This can the be mixed with a little bit of honey, yoghurt or peanut butter on a teaspoon if the taste needs to be modified.
