Over-the-Counter Medications & Drugs

Over the Counter Drugs

From headaches to colds and fevers to upset stomachs, chances are you have taken over-the-counter medications like:

  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, and other brand names)
  • Aspirin (Bayer, Ecotrin, and other brand names)
  • Cold and flu medications
  • Cold remedy and prevention medications (including Zicam)
  • Allergy medicines (Claritin, Benadryl, Zyrtec, Sudafed, and Allegra)
  • Medications for upset stomachs (Mylanta, Tums, Pepto-Bismol, Maalox, Pepcid AC, Zantac 75, etc.)
  • Dietary supplements and vitamins
  • And many more

Always read the directions and side effect warnings before taking any over-the-counter medications or giving them to your kids. Only take the amount listed on the container, within the proper time frame. Ask a pharmacist if you have questions.

But what if you took an over-the-counter drug exactly as you should have and were seriously hurt? While medications are regulated and monitored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the companies that make the drugs, sometimes they can cause damaging long-term effects or severe medical problems and illnesses.
