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.

This is the introduction to the page that has many links to excellent write-ups and pamphlets from the FDA about OTC medications.

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