It's a fact that there is an emerging trend toward self-reliance and consumers are increasingly comfortable managing their own healthcare needs. It is accepted that while there is no substitute for visiting the doctor, more and more of us are taking control of minor medical problems with safe, reliable over-the-counter (OTC) medications. And in some cases it is cheaper to purchase these medications over-the-counter than with a prescription from the doctor.

Here are some simple facts to give you an insight of self care and the self-medication industry, taken from The Proprietary Association of Great Britain:

  • The current value of the UK over-the-counter (OTC) market is £2.3 billion.
  • In 2007, people bought over 976 million packsof OTC medicines to treat themselves, compared with 873 million prescriptions.
  • People find OTC medicines effective and prove it by buying the same products time and again.
  • The ingredients in OTC medicines are well established with well known safety profiles. They have often been on the market for as long as 60-100 years. OTC medicines are regularly reviewed to ensure they continue to be used responsibly for self care and self-medication.
  • The top 10 minor ailments are responsible for 75% of consultation costs and 85% of prescription costs, amounting to £1.62 billion.
