Saridon provides pain relief as fast as 30 minutes, after consumption, due to its
unique triple action formula. Saridon is more efficacious than other analgesics
such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin. It has the advantages of fast onset
of action and a combined analgesic effect. In a comparative study, patients with
moderate to severe acute dentoalveolar pain were divided into five groups. Each
group of patients were given one of the analgesics. The patients treated with saridon
reported pain gone/partly gone and less pain when compared to paracetamol, ibuprofen,
and aspirin 30 to 60 minutes after administering the medication. Therefore, the
study provide that Saridon is a most effective pain killer.
Saridon reduces the pain caused by headache in 3 different ways.
Blocks Prostaglandin secretion:
Prostaglandin is a chemical that is released in tissues whenever there is damage
or inflammation. Prostaglandin once released, activates nerves, which in turn relay
the pain signal to the brain. All three ingredients of Saridon – Paracetamol,
Propyphenazone and Caffeine – block prostaglandin production. In the absence of prostaglandin
the pain signals are not initiated and the person feels relief.
Block pain signal transmission:
Pain can only be felt in the body if the necessary signals reach the brain. The
signals are passed from one nerve to another, till the signal reaches the brain.
Paracetamol present in Saridon blocks this transmission of the signal from one nerve
to another. With no pain signal reaching the brain, the person does not feel
the pain anymore.
Modulates the intensity of pain:
Once the pain signal reaches the brain, the brain decides on the intensity and severity
of pain. Depending on this decision, the person will report the degree with which
he or she is suffering. Paracetamol in Saridon helps to modulate this decision made
by the brain and by doing so, decreases the perceived intensity of pain. Hence,
when you take a Saridon, you will be able to tackle the pain better.
You can take Saridon for the relief of mild to severe headaches, toothache, menstrual
discomfort, postoperative and rheumatic pain, and for pain and fever associated
with colds and flu.
It is available in tablet form in most of the pharmacies and retail outlets.

If necessary, 3 doses may be taken within 24 hours.

If you have liver problems and kidney problems then you should not take Saridon
regularly for a prolonged period as it may affect liver and kidney function and
may lead to analgesic nephropathy and irreversible renal insufficiency. Saridon

because it can cause chronic headaches, asthma, chronic rhinitis or chronic urticaria.
