Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are medicines readily available without a prescription provided by a healthcare professional. These drugs are safe, effective, and well-tolerated when the consumer follows the directions of use on the label or as suggested by a physician. OTC drugs are used for treating conditions such as pain, cough, cold, diarrhea, constipation, acne, recurring migraine, and allergies that do not require direct consultation with a doctor. They also include dietary supplements that provide nutrient and non-nutrient chemicals in the human body. As a result, they are widely available in pharmacies, convenience stores, supermarkets, and gas stations.
