Over-the-Counter Products comprise a special category of healthcare products. While these formulations have much in common with their prescription counterparts, they are presented in this series separately because of their development approach taken, labeling considerations required, and support available from suppliers of ingredients in designing these products.

  • solids, liquids, and suspensions
  • practical advice on how to bring manufacturing practices into compliance with regulatory requirements
