The Medical Post 2019 Survey on OTC Counselling & Recommendations was fielded between July and October 2018 via an online survey. A total of 594 physicians completed the survey.

Physicians were asked in two open-ended questions: how often they make recommendations on a product category, and what OTC brands they most often recommend in each category. Physicians were not prompted with any brand names.
