Along with other brands, Anadin's paracetamol tablets have been criticised for being overpriced compared to non-branded versions (e.g. 16 Anadin Paracetamol tablets each containing 500 mg of paracetamol cost around £2.09 while non-branded equivalents retail for around £0.35). Over the past five years Anadin sales have dropped significantly with people favouring purchase of non-branded versions and the Nurofen brand of painkillers which has seen increased sales due to marketing.
As with many proprietary painkillers, the addition of caffeine to Anadin products may also make them slightly addictive or even induce headaches once people stop taking them.
In popular culture
Ahead of the band Sunscreem's second studio album, the group released a variety of tracks under alternative names including a selection of 12-inch singles referred to as the Anna Series. This included the instrumental "Angel Dub," which was credited to Anna Din, and was featured on many compilations such as Renaissance: The Mix Collection by Sasha & John Digweed.
A close up of a 1973 Anadin package appears in season 2, episode 1 of the BBC series Life on Mars.
