OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS
These are medicines that can be purchased at a pharmacy without the need for a prescription. They include medicines for many skin conditions, conjunctivitis, allergies, emergency contraception, constipation and diarrhoea, to name a few. Pharmacists are trained to deal with many ‘self-limiting’ conditions and an appointment is not needed. Some pharmacies are open late and at weekends.
Sometimes your doctor or nurse will suggest one of these medicines when they see you.
