Do you have any questions about PharmAssist?

What is the difference between OTC to prescription medication?
Rx-to-OTC switch refers to the transfer of proven prescription drugs (Rx) to nonprescription, OTC status. Rx-to-OTC switch is a rigorous scientifically evidence based and highly regulated process. This allows consumers to have access to a growing range of OTC medicines that were available only by prescription less than 40 years ago. Ten of thousands of OTC products are available worldwide. These contain more than 100 OTC active ingredients, numerous strengths and many different indications.
Why do I need to use PharmAssist? Isn't my knowledge for selecting OTC according to my symptoms not enough?
The name OTC medication may be misleading to the people. OTCs contain the same active ingredients as with prescription (Rx) medications. Thus, if OTCs are not used rationally or safely, they may not work and even harm patients. We believe that the adequate training and guidance is required for making safe and efficient decisions and PharmAssist is the right tool to accomplish this.
