Consumer Education: Over-the-Counter Medicine
Over-the-counter medicine is also known as OTC or nonprescription medicine. All these terms refer to medicine that you can buy without a prescription. They are safe and effective when you follow the directions on the label and as directed by your health care professional.

Note that you can choose information with lots of graphics or the same without graphics. You can also get printed copies.
