Executive Summary

One in four adults exceeds the recommended dose of OTC analgesics, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen, and 31 percent of 47,283 people polled online admitted to not following carefully labeling directions for those drugs, according to a May 6 Consumer Reports release. Consumers commonly over-use nonprescription drugs, which can exacerbate the problem, the Consumers Union publication adds. It also notes that in a survey of 6,000 respondents, 73 percent keep acetaminophen or ibuprofen on hand and 69 percent have aspirin in their medicine cabinets
