Skip The Lines And Avoid The Frustration By Getting Your Over The Counter Medications From Your Local Drugstore, The Apothecary Shoppe Pharmacy!
Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines are drugs you can buy without a prescription from your local Drugstore. Some OTC medicines relieve aches, pains and itches. Some prevent or cure diseases, like tooth decay and athlete's foot. Others help manage recurring problems, like migraines. Over the counter medications enable people to relieve many annoying and frustrating symptoms and to cure some illnesses simply and without the cost of seeing a doctor. However, safe use of these drugs requires knowledge, common sense, and responsibility.
Some medicines should only be used by adults or older children. Be sure to read the package instructions carefully or ask a pharmacist at a Drugstore before giving any product to an infant or young child. If you are pregnant, always check with your pharmacist or doctor before using any nonprescription medicine, to make sure it is safe to use during pregnancy. Carefully read the label of any nonprescription drug you use, especially if you also take prescription medicines for other health problems. You can even ask our pharmacists for help in finding the nonprescription drug best suited to your needs!
