Q.

Ponstan or Nurofen

Hi, what is the better pain medicine for a 20 month old - ponstan or baby nurofen ? My little girl seems to like the tast of nurofen (and you only need to give 1/2 a teaspoon), but if ponstan is better / more effective than I will use that.

Both are equally effective. You can certainly continue to use the baby Nurofen when needed for your little girl.
