Overuse of over the counter meds

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Shelia Clasbey is concerned about the overuse of OTC (over the counter) medicines for allergies.

Pay attention to the medicine label. People don't realize that acetaminophen and tylenol are the same thing and too much can cause serious liver damage.

So many drugs have different brand names.

Let your doctor know all the medicines you take even on an occasional basis.
