Executive Summary

Focuses on the role pharmacists can play in helping consumers choose OTC medicines. "Your pharmacist can advise you about selecting nonprescription ('over-the-counter') medications and products for your family," the site tells consumers under the heading "Your Household's Medication Inventory." Pharmacists "can provide you with valuable information when treating minor ailments or mishaps at home," it adds. The site also includes topics such as "Ask your Pharmacist about Nonprescription Medicines"; "Guide to Educating Children About Medicines"; "Making Your Medications Work Better"; "Understanding Your Medicines" and "Avoiding Medication Errors." The section dedicated to OTCs says if consumers are "still not sure which medicine to take after reading the label" it is "time to ask your pharmacist for help"
