I know this is not a subject that most people want to talk about, but sadly it’s a part of life. Constipation happens, no matter what your age or how healthy you are. There are many things that can cause this uncomfortable condition to happen from diet and exercise (even lack of exercise) to medication and illnesses. Some people are just more prone to it than others. Our son seems to have constipation frequently. Usually increasing his fiber intake and forcing him to be more active helps a lot. Sometimes We have to result to a little help from an over the counter medication.
According to a recent survey conducted by Russell Research for Purdue Products, 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 health care provider. That is why it’s important to discuss side effects with your doctor and pharmacist. You should also read the literature that most pharmacies provide you when you pick up your medication.
One way to help with occasional constipation is to take a product such as Senokot Tablets. They provide overnight relief to those who occasionally suffer from constipation which may be associated with diet and lifestyle changes, stress and travel. If your constipation is a result of medication you are taking, Senokot-S Tablets are a great option. They help to provide overnight relief to those who occasionally suffer from constipation which may be associated with certain medications.
This month Senokot Tablets and Senokot-S Tablets is launching a sweepstakes that some readers might be interested in. It’s called the Senokot/Senokot-S Overnight Relief Sweepstakes.
This is a three‐month national sweepstakes promotion open to anyone age 18 or older. Entrants can win an array of awesome prizes including Hyatt Hotel gift cards, Phillips 22” flat-screen TVs, Kindle Touches, iPod Nanos and much more.
“We created the Senokot/Senokot-S Overnight Relief Sweepstakes to provide relief to the millions of Americans who suffer from occasional constipation,” explains Charlene Bailey, Director, Product Management, Purdue Products L.P., a leader in providing products for relief of occasional constipation. “We also want to remind consumers that Senokot products are made with a natural vegetable laxative ingredient and provide gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation.”
During the sweepstakes a grand total of $50,000 in prizes will be given away to lucky entrants. Winners will be selected randomly on a daily basis.
You can enter the Senokot/Senokot-S Overnight Relief Sweepstakes as many times as you like by visiting a promotional website, www.SenokotOvernightRelief.com. The promotion kicked off August 12, 2012, with a coupon in more than 46,000,000 newspapers across the country. The coupon features a special QR code providing smart phone users a quick link to the sweepstakes entry page. The sweepstakes will end on November 11, 2012.
To help raise awareness about the “burden” of occasional constipation, Senokot Brand will install a 20’ pill bottle in Penn Station on September 6, 2012, to drive home the point that certain medications can cause occasional constipation, and to let consumers know there is relief for this condition. This should be interesting. I can’t wait to see what the bottle looks like. 🙂 Additionally, consumers will be encouraged to enter the sweepstakes on-site at Penn Station and they will also be able to get their picture taken on the red carpet with the “Giant Bottle,” and share it with friends and family via social media. If you live in NYC or will happen to be in the city on that day you should check it out.
