Over the Counter Medications
Non-prescription drugs, OTC medicines are drugs you can buy without a doctors prescription. Some OTC medicines relieve aches, pains and itches.
Some prevent or cure diseases, like tooth decay and athlete's foot. Others help manage recurring problems, like migraines.
Taking Over the Counter medicines still has risks. Some OTC interact with other medicines, supplements, foods or drinks. Others cause problems for people with certain disorders or medical conditions. If you're pregnant, please talk to your health care provider before taking any medicines.
