Pharmacists are in a unique position with regard to counseling about OTC products. They can explore the various warnings and precautions on a product’s label to help patients decide when a product is inappropriate and a physician should be consulted, a process called pharmacist-assisted self-care triage. Many nonprescription products carry warnings related to the urinary tract, and knowledge of those products and the rationale for the warnings can help pharmacists provide the highest level of care.
