Can I take an otc product for my cold and flu symptoms?

The cost factor

Most prescription products that are used to treat the symptoms of cold and flu have an otc counterpart that is very similar to it. If you do not have prescription insurance, it is worthwhile to ask your physician if an otc product is available for your symptoms. This can save you a substantial amount of money. It is always important to talk to your healthcare provider before taking ANY over the counter products on your own.
