Think First before Taking Saridon

The Wikipedia says “Saridon is an analgesic combination indicated for the management of headache. The currently global base formulation contains 135mg of propyphenazone, 260 mg of paracetamol and 55 mg of caffeine.

The combination is designed and said to produce effective analgesia with fast onset of action in 15 minutes, as compared to paracetamol, ibuprofen, or aspirin alone”


As far as I remember the TV and online ad of Saridon has adult scenes. However, I read an article online that Saridon is safe to take. I wonder what Department of Health would explain about Saridon.

The last time I ran a 42KM run I felt pain so I took a pain reliever but I didn’t try to take Saridon as a remedy. I had Alaxan instead.

Why? I am so scared of the possible side effects it might cause.

Saridon is prescribed to relieve diferent pains: migraine pain, persistent headache, muscle ache, arthritis pain, backache, dental troubles, common cold and fever.

It also relieves minor arthritis without decreasing the inflammation or swelling of the joints.

Saridon is banned in Sri Lanka, Korea, Malaysia and Turkey. because it has Propyphenazone content.
But it is available in drugstores here in the Philippines.

How hazardous is Propyphenazone? Propyphenazone is derived from pyrazolone and is related to phenazone. It has antipyretic and analgesic properties.

According to some of my friends who is into pharmaceutical field Saridon is accessible to drug stores nationwide.

There are side effects people should know before buting Saridon it includes;
nausea, low fever, vomiting, stomach ache, loss of appetite, dark urine, tarry stool, yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Plus there are allergic reactions, chest pain, difficulty in breathing, swelling of the throat, lips, tongue and face.

As a matter of fact I’ve seen some blogs which has ads of Saridon. It means it is very well promoted here in the Philippines

Saridon is sold at very affordable price here. DOH and Bayer should do something about this.
Saridon, Is it Safe?

    3. Better look for alternatives. Propyphenazone has severe side effects if you consume for quite some time.

  17. Saridon is a good medicine for Head Ache and I have been taking this medicine past 10 years. I found no other substitute for Saridon and am not affected by any Side Effects till date.
    NB: If any medicine is taken as nominal dosage 1-3 tablet per month there will be no issues, but I am not aware of the condition taking more 5+ tablet per occasion.

  20. I have been using Saridon for the past 6-7 years for my headache. I have always found relief within 15-20 minutes of consuming the pill. Moreover, I haven't taken more than 2 pills in a month. So although I am not a doctor, I believe saridon to be safe IF CONSUMED WITHIN PERMISSIBLE LIMITS.

  21. All medicines have POSSIBLE side effects. Saridon has possible side effects but it doesn't mean that you will have these effects. Some may have it, some don't. If you experience any of the side effects after taking Saridon, then don't take it again. That applies to all medicines.

  22. I've taken Saridon for my migraine for almost 18 months (3-4 times almost every week). Instant relief without adverse effect. BUT on the 19th month onward, I started experiencing swelling of my lips with itchiness and rashes around the area. Since then I never taken Saridon again.
