As health care professionals who are both trusted and accessible, pharmacists are frequently consulted by consumers who rely on their expertise for OTC product recommendations. For the 17th year, Pharmacy Times has conducted its annual Survey of Pharmacists’ OTC Recommendations and published the results, providing a comprehensive resource for pharmacists and consumers. The results are available on OTCGuide.net in an easy-to-navigate, searchable format. This valuable resource organizes OTC products into 14 different categories and reveals the OTC brands that pharmacists who read Pharmacy Times most often recommended.
