Several different types of painkiller are sold under the brand. As of April 2009[update], these include:
- Anadin Original – aspirin and caffeine based
- Anadin paracetamol tablets – launched in 1988
- Anadin ibuprofen tablets – launched in 1997
- Anadin Extra – aspirin, paracetamol and caffeine based (ordinary version launched in 1983 and soluble version in 1992)
- Anadin Joint Pain
- Anadin Liquifast (or Anadin Ultra) – ibuprofen-based liquid capsules (ordinary and "Double strength" versions)
Along with other brands, Anadin's paracetamol tablets have been criticised for being overpriced compared to non-branded versions (e.g. in 2008 16 Anadin Paracetamol tablets each containing 500 mg of paracetamol cost around £2.09 while non-branded equivalents retailed for around £0.35).
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.
