Saridon is an analgesic combination containing 150 mg of propyphenazone, 250 mg of paracetamol and 50 mg of caffeine. The combination is designed to produce effective analgesia with fast onset, as compared to paracetamol, ibuprofen, or aspirin alone. In the United States, a similar fast-acting analgesic is marketed under the brand name Excedrin.
Additional recommended knowledge
Saridon is manufactured by F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG of Switzerland and was introduced in 1930.
Originally, Saridon contained phenacetin. However, when it was discovered that phenacetin was carcinogenic and had a link to analgesic-induced nephropathy, Saridon was reformulated without this ingredient.
