Rachel Deakin from Tyldesley in Greater Manchester posted a message on Facebook after her six-month-old daughter Autumn “instantly started screaming and gagging” after taking some of the medicine. Deakin contacted Nurofen and the Co-op from which it was bought, and the medicine has now been taken off the shelves.

NHS doctors may be stopped from providing travel vaccinations and prescriptions for hayfever tablets, indigestion remedies and omega 3 supplements under major cost-cutting plans. Coeliacs could also have to buy their own gluten-free food, which will no longer be available on the NHS as part of a proposed crackdown on “low value” prescription items available in supermarkets and over the counter for a fraction of the cost. NHS England hopes to save up to £400m a year under new national guidelines.
Social media is one of the most major tools, joys, and evils of our time. @nakedwithanxiety, hit Instagram with a pair of side-by-side photos that show just how much reality those filters can obscure — and how damaging that can be for folks who feel they need to hide their mental health issues on social media (and throughout their lives, for that matter).
