Brief Answer:
Paracetamol at 15 mg/kg per dose

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.

Calpol contains paracetamol drug which is used for fever.
Paracetamol is given in dosage of 15 mg/kg per dose.
Calpol drops contain Paracetamol 100 mg in 1 ml. So, you have to calculate dosage according to weight.
Other trade names are T98 drops, crocin drops.
I hope this will help you.
Take care.
