Good Morning,

I'm not sure about the tablets but we use dissolvable (sp?) paracetamol with water flavourings instead of Lemsip.

Hope you feel better soon:)

Have you tried taking some normal Paracetamol and sipping a warm drink?
That should make you feel more comfortable. Hope you feel better soon.

No - I've been hanging on in the hope that someone would know whether I could take them..

Thank you - will go and get some regular paracetamol inside me and hope that, by the time I'm next able to take something someone will know!

I know you can take sugar free products but for me it was a cough and sore throat, so was given diabetic cough mixture and sugar free strepsils......will put a note up in the mini mods section to see if anyone knows

Thanks Sonkie.. Must admit I had some this afternoon and felt better for it, could finally breath again and stopped sneezing every 5 minutes..
