OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS MAY 3, 2018

We sometimes visit our favourite pharmacy to look for over the counter medication, whether it be for minor aches and pains, or sore throats and colds. But, just as prescription medication can sometimes have adverse side effects, the same holds true for some over the counter medications. This is why it’s always a good idea to speak with your pharmacist about your symptoms and the best way for you to treat them. Today our trusted contributor from the Ontario Pharmacists Association Pharmacists, Teresa Dias stops by to tell us what you should be looking for and how OTC’s can interact with other medications and alcohol and much more.
