Over-the-Counter Medications & Products
Over-the-Counter (OTC) medications/products are medications/products which do not require a prescription to be purchased. Examples of OTCs include Sudafed (psuedoephedrine), Tylenol (acetaminophen), Aleve (naproxen), cold and cough preparations, diabetic supplies, pregnancy tests, vitamins, and bandages etc.
The pharmacy carries a varied selection of OTCs for you to purchase at reasonable costs. View a listing (not all inclusive) of OTC products available. The majority of OTC products that the pharmacy stocks are the generic products to help you save money. A generic product (acetaminophen) contains the same active ingredient(s) as a brandname product (Tylenol) but is less expensive. They are as effective as the brandname product. If there is a specific product that you would like but the pharmacy does not routinely stock, stop by or call (301) 314-8186 to see if it can be special ordered for you.
To purchase Plan B One Step® without a prescription, the buyer must be at least 17 years of age and present proof of age (driver's license or passport) AND a valid University ID card.
The purchase of pseudoephedrine (Sudafed®) and pseudoephedrine-containing products requires a valid driver's license, passport, or other state- or federal-issued identification. There are no exceptions.
A pharmacist is available to help you choose the appropriate OTC product for your needs.
