The “Burden” of Occasional Constipation Creates Buzz in Penn Station
According to a survey of 1,150 men and women age 50 or older taking at least one prescription medication for common medical conditions, 84% of those polled didn’t realize that their medication could cause occasional constipation prior to speaking with a healthcare provider. The survey, conducted by Russell Research for Purdue Products, showed that about one-third of respondents (35%) who were advised about possible side effects of their medications were told occasional constipation might occur with the medication they are taking.(1)
To help raise awareness about the “burden” of occasional constipation, on September 6, the Senokot® Brand will install a 20′ pill bottle in Penn Station to drive home the point that certain medications can cause occasional constipation, and let consumers know there is relief for this condition. Consumers will be encouraged to enter the Senokot®/ Senokot-S® Overnight Relief Sweepstakes on-site at Penn Station. Consumers will also be able to get their picture taken with the “Giant Bottle” and share it with friends and family via social media. For more information on the Senokot®/Senokot®-S Overnight Relief Sweepstakes, and the Giant Bottle event at Penn Station, visit www.SenokotOvernightRelief.com and follow it on Twitter @SenokotSweeps.
