Why rate health products?  Americans are increasingly relying on the Web–and each other–to make everyday health decisions, such as which headache medication to buy.
But pharmacists possess a wealth of knowledge, largely untapped by consumers, about which over-the-counter products are best suited to a particular health need.  Top Recommended Health Products brings the collective recommendations of thousands of pharmacists directly to consumers.

For example, by visiting the "Cough, Cold, and Allergy Products" page, cold, flu, and allergy sufferers can now use this resource to find the No.1 pharmacist-recommended remedy for their symptoms.

"We hope to make that trip to the drugstore a little more informed and a little less confusing," says Lindsay Lyon, Senior Editor of Health & Wellness at U.S. News & World Report.In gathering OTC data, Pharmacy Times conducted a proprietary annual survey that reaches a significant portion of the publication's 170,000 pharmacist readers to collect feedback about more than 1,000 OTC products.  In addition to publication on the U.S. News website, the list of No. 1 pharmacist-recommended products is published by Pharmacy Times at www.otcguide.net and in the annual OTC Guide print edition available this month.

"Pharmacists are in the unique position to help consumers make educated choices about which over-the-counter products best meet their needs," said Tighe Blazier, President of Pharmacy Times. "By working with U.S. News & World Report, we're thrilled to be able to bring this expertise to consumers."
