Soller RW, Mulvaney M, Rice L, Negerete MJ. Warnings in Nonprescription Drug Print Advertisements. SelfCare 2012;3(3):56-66
There is discordance in how U.S. consumers receive nonprescription and prescription drug warnings in advertising. While video and print advertising of prescription medicines must contain warnings, advertisements for nonprescription medicines do not. To assess health professional views of this discordance, we surveyed California licensed pharmacists and pharmacy students using an online questionnaire in relation to their support for warnings in nonprescription drug print advertising and related matters.
