About OTC Drugs

OTC drugs are medicines that can be bought without a prescription from a doctor because the US FDA considers them safe for use without medical supervision. These drugs are used to treat conditions that do not necessarily require a doctor's advice, such as pain, itches, cough and cold, sleeping problems, smoking cessation, weight problems, gastrointestinal problems, and tooth decay. They are sold through hospitals, pharmaceutical stores, grocery stores, catalogs, and online retail stores.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global over-the-counter (OTC) drug market to grow at a CAGR of 6.19% during the period 2016-2020.
