I used to think I was pretty lucky that I didn’t get that much headaches when I was in high school or college. But all that changed when I started working three years ago. I guess the stress and pressure of a 9-to-5 day job is to be blamed for this. Actually, I don’t think it’s my job per se but a combination of factors.
For one, I have a really bad eyesight. I have a -5.00 grade plus astigmatism so you can just imagine how hellish it is. Two, I’m never away from the computer. Working as an editor, I have to be in front of the computer 24/7, write and type, and stare at the monitor some more. I’m such a bookworm too. I read before I go to bed–in bed–which doesn’t do any good to my eyesight ’cause I usually read against the light. I know it’s bad, but I can’t help it. 😀
It was only last year that I started taking over-the-counter medicines to relieve me of my headache but none of them did the job. I’m usually a tough cookie, but it came to the point that I couldn’t concentrate and deliver at work. That was unacceptable to me, so even though I’m a bit iffy about trying other brands, I popped a tab of Saridon that my officemate had in her medicine stash. Yes, she said one tablet was enough and indeed it was.
It was an unfamiliar brand so I head on over to my computer to check out the Saridon brand. Apparently, it’s a brand from Bayer–a familiar name–which was specifically formulated to zero in on persistent headaches. Now that’s more like it, a medicine that doesn’t try to multitask but is simple, straightforward and unpretentious in its objective. It’s super safe too!
It took just about 15 minutes before I felt the pangs dissipate. I didn’t even notice it as I was busy reading through articles talking about how Saridon worked like a dream for them as well.
Saridon is Bayer Healthcare’s international brand of pain relief medication that was specifically formulated to target persistent headaches. Available in more than 80 countries, it has become the trusted brand for effective pain management by millions of people and it continues to sell over 600 Million tablets per year, worldwide.
Saridon has received positive reviews for its fast and long lasting effect—a feat sustained by its three ingredients: paracetamol, propyphenazone, and caffeine.
Today, you’ll spot Saridon in my neat little medicine kit I always carry in my bag! 🙂 I’d like to give a shout-out to my former workmate-slash-guardian-angel who was there when I was nearly dying of headache. If it wasn’t for your own Saridon supply, I would’ve been stuck to a brand that did nothing to help me. 😀
If you get frequent headaches like me, I’m giving you the chance to nab your own supply of Saridon and more from Bayer!
I’m throwing in these awesome face masks from The Face Shop too just ’cause I really do use them while I’m waiting for my headache to subside. Talk about multitasking, huh. 😀
