Having the right kinds of OTC medications on hand is important in case of minor illnesses and emergencies. Whether at home, at work or on the go, here are OTC medications that you must have:
For fever, headache, and pain
For stuffy/congested nose due to colds
Note: Many cold remedies contain antihistamines, which cause drowsiness and are best reserved for allergies.
For hyperacidity and heartburn
For itchy rashes, bug bites, and other skin irritations
For minor cuts and burns
Before taking any OTC medication, read the label, especially the dosage, frequency, and precautions sections. Some OTC medications may cause significant side effects and interact with prescription medications and cause harm. When in doubt and if symptoms persist, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
