Disprin is traditionally the most popular brand of soluble aspirin in the UK.
Disprin was successfully launched in November 1948. The brand name Disprin was chosen to link the active ingredient ‘aspirin’ with its dissolving nature, and Disprin quickly became popular with the medical profession – hence the early advertising slogan: "Take an aspirin – I mean a Disprin".
Disprin became an international brand in the 1950s when it appeared on shelves across the globe, including South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It is now available in over 70 countries and has been synonymous with effective analgesia for over half a century.
The Disprin range is now much more than soluble aspirin, however. Although these formats are enormously popular, the range now contains other active ingredients, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen. For instance India now has Disprin Paracetamol and Ireland now has Paracetamol tablets from the makers of Disprin and Ibuprofen tablets from the makers of Disprin. Disprin thus offers the consumer distinctive products with modern formats and a range of effective pain-killing ingredients.
