The Risks Involved In Purchase Of Over The Counter Medications

According to a latest study researchers say health professionals and patients require education programmes in // order effectively manage the risks associated with over the counter drugs. Of the many conditions treated , a headache is one of the most common condition that people choose to treat by themselves by purchasing Over-the-Counter Medications. Some of the other commonly treated ailments include heartburn, migraine, period pain, coughs, colds, and acid stomach.

The report also indicates that the trend towards greater self-treatment is indeed a sensible use of resources however if misused it could be dangerous. Drugs freely available over the counter are also at risk of being overused. Doctors are of the opinion that there is a need to increase education of health professionals and patients so that they would be able to keep pace with the increased availability of drugs over the counter. They also add that it is of great importance that the public realize that just because medicines are available over the counter it does not mean that they are risk-free, hence they say that educational programmes and improved labeling could help people understand how to make the best use of over the counter medicines and thus take control of their illness more effectively. Researchers of the study also suggest that the distribution of a general leaflet made available in pharmacies, describing the trend in over the counter availability and the advantages and disadvantages of over the counter medication might encourage patients to report adverse reactions.
