Cold, Flu and Allergy Sufferers Can Select the Best Over-the-Counter Medications with Help from Pharmacists
Date:2/27/2012

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With cold and flu season still active and allergy season on its way, the American Pharmacists Association(APhA) encourages patients to actively seek their pharmacist's advice about the proper use of medications. Pharmacists are the most accessible health care provider and are available to help the public choose the best over-the-counter (OTC) medication for cold, flu and allergy symptoms.

As the medication experts, pharmacists are trained in prescription medications, over-the-counter products and dietary and herbal supplements, and can provide patients with important information about how those medications and products may interact with certain foods or one another. Pharmacists can help patients determine whether they are suffering from a cold, flu or allergies and select products that address their individual needs, or recommend a patient see a doctor or other health care provider when symptoms warrant. A pharmacist can also provide a patient and their family with a flu vaccination and, in many states, other immunizations that prevent the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases.

Treating and preventing cold, flu and allergy-related symptoms are common inquiries for a pharmacist, especially at this time of year. The listing below highlights the #1 recommended products** from the 2011 Pharmacy Today Over-The-Counter Product Survey in the adult allergy, sinus and decongestant product categories.

  • Adult Antihistamines – Claritin (27% of 3,976 pharmacist recommendations)
  • Adult Antitussives - Dextromethorphan – Delsym (41% of 2,984 pharmacist recommendations)
