Self-care Product Survey

There are many options to treat most bothersome symptoms for children. For some women, nonprescription drugs are first-line options to treat uncomplicated vaginal infections, and patient preference is preferred in product selection. Women are able to self-treat for common menstrual issues and the pharmacist can support optimal self-care management.

Self-care survey redux

This section of Pharmacy Today’s Self-Care Product Survey is reprinted from the full survey results published in the August 2023 issue of the magazine and available online at pharmacytoday.org.

The current survey was conducted by BrandSpark/Newsweek International using a scientifically valid methodology, and lists those nonprescription products most often recommended by pharmacists in the United States to consumers.

The winners were selected based on a survey of 1,716 pharmacists practicing in the United States who gave their unaided write-in opinions on which brands they’d recommend to patients in 86 categories. The highest share of citations as most trusted in the category determined the winner. If the margin of citation share between the leading brands did not exceed the estimate of sampling error at 90% statistical confidence, then a tie was declared.
