Misuse of OTC medicine sales

WE often see people buying various medicines from pharmacies without a doctor's prescription.

This is a risky practice and should be avoided as far as possible. The practice is riskier for people who buy antibiotics from medicine shops without consulting a doctor.

In medical terminology this is called over the counter sales or OTC.

OTC is very restricted in the developed countries and any violation of OTC rules is punishable under law.
