Over the Counter Drugs and Medications

Drugs that are safe and effective for use by the general public without a prescription are defined as over the counter (OTC) drugs. These OTC drugs are often located on shelves in pharmacies with easy access by patients.
In the U.S., there are more than 80 classes of OTC drugs, ranging from allergy medicines to pain relievers to weight loss products.

A restricted class of OTC drugs also exists in the U.S. This restricted class includes drugs such as pseudoephedrine, emergency contraception, and some Schedule V controlled substances. These products, while considered OTC drugs, are kept behind the pharmacy counter and must be dispensed by a pharmacist pursuant to proper identification, age verification, and patient education.

Over The Counter medications can carry risk. There is the possibility of side effects, drug or food interactions, or harm due to excessive doses. Patients should read the ‘Drug Facts’ label that is found on all OTC products. All consumers, including older patients, pregnant women, and parents of young children should always consult with their pharmacist or other health care provider if they have additional questions concerning OTC drug use.
