DUBLIN, Oct. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Over-the-Counter (OTC) Drugs and Dietary Supplements: Opportunities for Consumer Goods Distributors" report has been added to's offering.

Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and dietary supplements will change the landscape of primary healthcare in the coming years. Initiatives such as the encouraging of self-medication, the increasing support from governments to add more products into safe-to-use OTC classifications and the efforts by drug manufacturers to expand their product ranges in different markets will favor growth.
