Over-the-Counter Medications

Make sure safety seals are in place before you buy

(HealthDayNews) -- When shopping for and taking over-the-counter medications, play it safe.

The University of Iowa offers these tips:

  • Check that all safety seals and tamper-proof features are in place before buying the medications.
  • Follow the directions on the label. They're there for your protection.
  • Store medications in cool, dry places that kids can't reach.
  • Throw out expired medications; they may have lost their potency.
