Who makes saridon?
The article states that the manufacturer is Roche, where in reality it is Bayer AG. PLease check the link .
Saridon was introduced by Roche, and was produced by them until the early 2000's, when Bayer purchased all of Roches OTD drugs - Saridon, Aspro, Berocca, Bepantehn and many others. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:30, 7 May 2010 (UTC) Jonathan
One of the problems concerning Saridon is that the same brand name is used in different countries to qualify a different product. For instance, you can buy (or you could buy) Saridon in Italy and in Japan (where I lived almost twenty years) but you wouldn't get the same product: among other things, the Italian one contains paracetamol while the Japanese one contains ethanzamide, an antalgic widely used in Asia and unknown in Europe. So, first of all, let's identify the product this article is supposed to talk about. I can confirm that until around year 2000, Roche and its Japanese associate were the manufacturers of the "Japanese" Saridon (Saridon A), a product much more efficient than any other I have tried to relieve headache. This product is still available in Japan, apparently now manufactured by Daiichi-sankyo (www.daiichisankyo-hc.co.jp/). 28 Nov. 2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:00, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
Article is outrageously promotional; needs a heavy edit
I have a very strong hunch that this article was written by someone associated with the makers of Saridon. It has an extremely advertisement-y feel to it -- not to mention the continued use of the ® symbol following every mention of the brand name. (Definitely not in agreement with MOS:TM.) I have neither the time nor the knowledge to repair it, but it definitely needs work. –The Fiddly Leprechaun · Catch Me! 19:12, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
- Update: After reviewing article history it seems the editor responsible for most of these changes is Doctorsaridon. –The Fiddly Leprechaun · Catch Me! 19:23, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
This article should be deleted
There is so much misinformation in here, I don't know where to begin. The most responsible thing would be to delete, there isn't a damn thing worth saving. It seems irresponsible that any encyclopeadia would publish this considering it is a topic pertaining to medicine. :( --Joh — Preceding unsigned comment added by EaggJoh (talk • contribs) 03:56, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
