Max­i­gesic $20k win­ner

Pharmacy Daily - - NEWS -

d z> Laverty, from Prospect in Tas­ma­nia, stared down the bar­rel of a onein-100 chance of be­com­ing an in­stant mil­lion­aire last week­end, thanks to the na­tion­wide Max­i­gesic ‘Chance to win $1 mil­lion’ pro­mo­tion.

The pro­mo­tion was open to Aus­tralian res­i­dents over the age of 18 and at­tracted en­tries from across the en­tire coun­try, with 10 fi­nal­ists drawn at ran­dom from 27,000 en­tries na­tion­wide.

While no-one picked up the $1m en­ve­lope out of the 100 pos­si­ble, the other nine fi­nal­ists picked up a cool $5,000 run­ners’ up prize, but Laverty’s was a $20,000 en­ve­lope.

CEK of AFT Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals and in­ven­tor of Max­i­gesic (ibupro­fen panadol com­bi­na­tion), Dr Hart­ley Atkin­son, said he was thrilled with the re­sponse to the com­pe­ti­tion. “I de­vel­oped Max­i­gesic as an al­ter­na­tive to other anal­gesics, par­tic­u­larly those con­tain­ing codeine, which has been shown to be ex­tremely ad­dic­tive, and not es­pe­cially ef­fec­tive in low doses,” ex­plained Atkin­son.

“Max­i­gesic, on the other hand, is non-habit-form­ing, and has been clin­i­cally proven to be an ef­fec­tive pain re­liever,” he claimed.
