Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments As an allergy sufferer and an individual who is employed in the healthcare arena, I am all for making these medications OTC. In the argument that the OTC's that make us sleepy are safe but the non-drowsy medications are not safe for OTC sale, I fail to see the logic. Although I find it hard to believe, I find myself siding with the Insurance companies on this one! Make them OTC and allow more consumers to obtain relief from their symptoms for a reasonable price. (After all, $85 dollars for a one month supply of Allegra is ridiculous!)
