Got a headache, cold or other minor illness?
Make sure you use over-the-counter (OTC) medicines safely…
Choose medicine that treats only the issue you have. Extra won’t help you but could cause side effects.
Don’t use medicines with the same active ingredient simultaneously, as too much can hurt you.
Always read the label before using meds to ensure you know what they are and how to use them.
Don’t take more than the recommended dosage.
Keep medicine in its original container, and store it out of reach of children and pets.
Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more OTC medicine safety advice.
