Where does this information come from?
Product rankings provided come from the 2019 Pharmacy Times Survey of Pharmacists’ OTC Recommendations, which is an annual event polling thousands of U.S. Pharmacists. Detailed product information comes primarily from the National Library of Medicine (NLM), using their database of over-the-counter (OTC) product labels. Please note that not all product label information is available, including vitamins, dietary supplements, homeopathic products, and durable medical goods. We are adding additional product information regularly, but if you see something missing, please let us know at info@pharmacytimes.com.
Are generic products in the survey?
The Pharmacy Times Survey of Pharmacists’ OTC Recommendations specifically asks pharmacists just about OTC brands that represent the most recognizable products in their respective classes. While generic products can meet your needs, please consult your pharmacist about selecting one that is right for you.
Where is my favorite product?
The database of products in the website is limited to those that are included in the 2019 Pharmacy Times Survey of Pharmacists’ OTC Recommendations, which included more than 800 products from 135 categories. While this covers many available products, it is not an exhaustive list. If there is something missing, let us know by sending us a note at info@pharmacytimes.com.
