OTC Meds, Herbal & Dietary Supplements: Convenient – Yes. Harmless – Not Necessarily.

Since our clients are facing risks and high costs associated with liver injury and chronic kidney disease, we wanted to compile some information pertaining to the impact of over-the-counter (OTC) medications and herbal and dietary supplements (HDS) in these areas. We believe this information will help drive a more proactive approach that better educates and protects employees, members and patients from these often devastating and potentially costly conditions. Particularly when these OTC medications or supplements are mixed with prescriptive drugs, contraindicated in certain health conditions, known to adversely injure certain organs when taken in quantity over time, or combined with foods or drinks that potentiate their effect.
