You can speak with our pharmacist to discuss the symptoms you're trying to treat in order to find the best over the counter medication for you. They can make sure you don't duplicate ingredients and that the product is appropriate for the age and weight of the person.
Recommending Generic Alternatives
Our pharmacist can advise you if there is a generic option that is less expensive than a brand name drug. The key difference between generic and a brand name medication is the cost, but not all generics are alike.
