Do you believe that all OTC (over the counter) drugs

are 100% safe and with no side effects? I take them a lot especially analgesics and cold remedies but I find it hard to believe that they are that safe. If not for the smell, I would prefer using bengay or other chinese medicated balms. Do you use them a lot?

I use some OTC especially if I get a really bad sinus headache. Some of them do carry side effects, but you have to read all the fine print to see them. I do believe that they are pretty safe or they wouldn't be OTC.

We don't go to the doctor that much. The only time we did was when I was pregnant. LOL If we are sick, we buy OTC stuff. It's quicker and usually cheaper! Plus those stores are open 24/7. :) Very convenient. Now that we don't have insurance, we'll be doing that more this year. Well I hope not since we don't get sick that often...
