Choosing over-the-counter medications
Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs don’t need a prescription, so they can be easier and more convenient than filling a prescription at the pharmacy. You can save time since you won’t have to wait for the pharmacist. You may be able to save money because OTC drugs are usually less expensive than prescription medications.
If your doctor agrees that an OTC drug makes sense for your condition, consider the ways you can save with OTC medications.
