I never once looked at this thread on the MF, but I can see now that it has its uses. Sorry, I'm getting a bit long in the tooth - I understand opiates, but I thought CDs were silvery round things that you hung up to keep the birds off your vegetables. No?

Yay,
I finally got on! Hope all is well with you folks.

Marcus, what could a bottle of poppers do if a child got hold of them?

I'm still interested in how long sedatives remain detectable in the bloodstream..For example if someone had an accident or similar and a post mortem was carried out...what could be detected after say..6 to 12 hours.

@ mrsdiamondpants and snivelling mole - I am amazed that amitrypteline is prescribed at all for children - I take a low dosage because it does seem to help sciatica, but children...Marcus, what is your view of this?

im amazed too, even the low dose i was on i was off my tits.

i distinctly remember my doctor telling me to give my daughter calpol when she was ill as a baby yet she was under 2 months old which is the rcommended age for giving it to a child.

Medised works very well(almost too well, kiddy hangovers are not fun!), but Phenergan(another anti-hystamine) can go either way, it can work well one night, but if you give it again the next night the kid could be bouncing off the walls within 5mins!

I never heard of Calpol night though, maybe it's just not available here.

Ireland.

Another thing that was recommended to us by a psychologist for our Adhd fella, was synthetic Melatonin. It's not available in the UK or Ireland, but can be purchased in health stores in the US as a 'supplement' as it's not FDA approved as a medicine. Needless to say the lack of FDA approval put us right off that one, altough it is highly affective and based on 'natural medicine' as Melatonin is the hormone that regulates sleep patterns.

New Zealand

I don't know if Calpol Night is available here in New Zealand. I believe that it is available in UK but I may be wrong. I don't know when exactly it was marketed first, or where. Does anyone else?

As Madeleine allegedly screamed for her Daddy for over an hour a couple of nights prior to her disappearance maybe she was given an extra dose of whatever they were using on subsequent nights (IF they were using anything at all, that is).

Melatonin is available in the UK and can be prescribed by a GP

Medised and Calpol night are essentially the same, Pharmacies that refuse to sell Medised but stock and sell Calpol night freely are hypocrites, both have the same active ingredients 120 mg Paracetamol and 12.5 mg Diphenhydramine hydrochloride per 5ml.

Yes I take a low dosage too for sciatica and back pain, I was quite amazed when I read the leaftlet about it being given to children.
To my critics
When I'm in a sober mood, I worry, work and think,
When I'm in a drunken mood, I gamble, play and drink,
But when my moods are over and my time has come to pass,
I hope I'm buried upside down, so the world may kiss my ar*e
