  • What is Saridon®?
    Saridon is an analgesic specially made for treating headaches.

    What is Saridon® used for?
    Saridon provides fast and effective relief from mild to severe headaches.

    What are Saridon®’s ingredients?
    Each Saridon tablet contains:
    Paracetamol                             250 mg
    Propyphenazone                      150 mg
    Caffeine                                     50 mg

    Paracetamol helps reduce fever and pain while providing long lasting relief.
    Propyphenazone is an anti-inflammatory used to treat mild to moderate pain, like headaches, quickly.
    Caffeine, when combined with other analgesics, improves their effects.

    How do Paracetamol, Propyphenazone and Caffeine work together?
