Senokot Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Senna glycoside, also known as sennoside or senna, is a medication used to treat constipation and empty the large intestine before surgery. The medication is taken by mouth or via the rectum. It typically begins working in minutes when given by rectum and within twelve hours when given by mouth. It is a weaker laxative than bisacodyl or castor oil.
A patient mentioned, "Senokot is an unpredictable laxative. I take pain pills for chronic pain. For years I took Magnesium Oxide which worked like a charm. However, I had to keep adjusting the dose & it finally stopped working altogether. After trying other laxatives unsuccessfully, I tried Senokot. Began with 2 pills: nothing. 3 pills: nothing. I finally took 4 pills & next day excruciating cramps & went 4 times. Stools were not soft &I had to strain despite taking stool softness (these have never worked alone but read that taken with Senokot helped). At my wits end because nothing aside from enemas work. I eat prunes, plenty of fruit, dried figs & tons of vegetables. I can't take the cramping side effect which I never had with Magnesium Oxide."
Calibration Technician (Former Employee) says"I became sick working in Purdue pharma and I still am after leaving that crazy place for almost a year. Purdue was the real meaning of Modern Slavery."
Senior HRIS Manager (Former Employee) says"Very Hardworking employees. Upper Management does not know how to manage down and are losing some of their most valuable assets - their tenured employees."
Pain Management Sales Specialist (Current Employee) says"Purdue continues to create an opiate epidemic worldwide by launching non abuse detterent formulations outside the US via Mudi Pharma, even though they manufacture Oxycontin in an abuse deterrent formulation that was substituted in the US in 2010."
Professional Sales Representative (Former Employee) says"Working here is like living in a Stephen Cons: Everything, you have been warned."
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee) says"This company is now out of business. It was taken over by First Horizon."
Master Data Analyst (Current Employee) says"Poor Higher Management. Lack a Vision . With One product company , sales declining & looking to survival as sales are declining now. see if t will survive next 5 years Cons: Higher management"
Consultant (Former Employee) says"Company is under siege due to opiod crisis. Management doesn't know how to downsize as they promise people it is over and then continue to announce layoffs. Everyone is petrified and can't do their jobs effectively. Cons: Not employee friendly"
Territory Business Manager (Former Employee) says"No pipeline, no future. I would not recommend anyone work for this company. There is no long term plans and the future looks bleak. They have had multiple rounds of layoffs over the past year and more to come."
Senior Production Operator (Former Employee) says"To be quite honest, I'm glad to be out of there. The well documented legal problems the company has had to deal with over the last number of years has taken its toll on a once great employer. Very poor management in manufacturing created a toxic work environment."
Pharmaceutical Territory Sales Representative (Current Employee) says"If you are in a state with good managed care it is a good place to work. Cons: not responive to ideas from field sales"
Territory Business Manager (Current Employee) says"Purdue could be so much more, but poor decisions and years of reliance on one product to pay the bills have put the company on shaky ground. The only product being promoted now is a late-to-market me too (the money maker isn't even promoted now). Upper sales management reads too many books on how to manage instead of leading. Territory Business Manager is a joke of a title, as district managers often live to micromanage and are with reps far too often. No rhyme or reason as to how job performance played into a recent layoff, as recent award winners were let go while average to marginal representatives were kept. Cons: lack of management accountability, no vision by upper management"
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) says"The benefits are great, and the salary is good for the work location, however there was a lot of bullying and passive aggressive behavior. The environment was silently toxic, If you made a complaint to Hr in confidence, it would go back to the person you discussed depending on their friendship and this would be used to prevent career growth. Cons: Toxic Environment, a lot of unprofessional behavior, clicques. Hard work is not valued."
Anonymous (Current Employee) says"I have been working at Purdue Pharma for more than 2 years. The company is currently facing a difficult time with over a 1000 lawsuit and the pending closure of the Durham plant."
Hospital Specialty Representative (Former Employee) says"No job security Cons: Reputation, lack of products"
Sr Admin Asst to Sr Dir, Mky Research (Former Employee) says"Senior management went to jail over Oxycontin. That says it all, in my opinion. Cons: Run by crooks"
Process Technician (Current Employee) says"Compensation is outstanding. Benefits are ok. 4 day work week is wonderful. The culture must be addicted to the pain management products they make. Shaky job security with all the pending lawsuits for the opioid crisis. It’s difficult to give this company 100% because you will not get it in return. Cons: Culture, buddy system that degrades workforce talent levels."
Finance (Current Employee) says"Management creates fire drills that end up showing there is no strategy. Cons: no work life balance. Old school mentality"
Client Services Technical Associate (Current Employee) says"A typical day of work is busy which is great because the day flies by. Cons: supporting aloof end users and management"
Territory Business Manager (Former Employee) says"Great salary. Unreal expectations. Management is sub par. Goals were inflated. No real direction with company. Entitled management with no leadership skills."
Quality Specialist II (Current Employee) says"The department I am working on has no experienced manager and the poor quality management skills affect my life and my performance."
Former Employee - Finance says"I worked at Purdue Pharma full-time for more than 8 years Cons: Now brutal & beyond cutthroat. Unfair to employees who dedicated their lives & families future to selfish & greedy power hungry phonies who pretend to support M Timney. Laughable business plan. Just sad & wrong in so many ways. Continue to deceive & destroy so many American communities & people. Don't be so proud of your profits. Fake & unethical. Generics may destroy America, but Purdue Pharma should no longer be the the beneficiary. Go back to Betadine, Senokot, & Fibermed. Honest business & profit at least... Steer clear of PPLP if you know what's best."
