Over the counter medications, often referred to as OTC's or OTC products are common items like cough syrup, cold and flu tablets, or general pain relief items found in many stores. The majority of these items are so common that most people may not immediately think of them as medications. It is important to realize that these items are medications with side effects, and drug interactions like any other medication.
Intermountain Healthcare out-patient pharmacies provide a wide variety of OTC medications for the benefit of our patients and patrons. We feel it is important to recognize that although these medications can be purchased without a prescription, they still have the potential of producing adverse reaction when not used appropriately.
If you have questions about selection or proper use of OTC medications our pharmacists will be happy to provide you with information about proper use and potential interactions with other medications or current medical conditions.
