Drugs

Many drugs are sold over-the-counter (no prescription necessary) and intended for medicinal use at home. Drugs for fever, cough, stuffy nose, runny nose, diarrhea, and allergies are common drugs which are especially helpful during times of illness. All medications should be kept out of the reach of children.
