Posted on: 13 Sep 17

The "Global OTC Analgesics Market - Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The market will boost due to the fact that a large percentage of population thinks that branded products do better than generic OTC Analgesic drugs. Further they always choose premium priced branded ones when it comes to relieving aggravating pains. The Private label products are rising in sales at a rate higher than any other branded products.

The FDA reported that a lot of patients tend to consume more than the dosage that is recommended. This increases the potential for adverse reactions.
