An extensive marketing campaign supported the launch of Tasectan, including, GP, Paediatrician and pharmacy detailing, POS and detail aid development, website, TV, Radio & online advertising, trade competitions etc…
Today Tasectan is sold in over 90% of pharmacies in Ireland including all major chains and is the brand leader in the treatment of diarrhoea for children.
