Welcome to the "OTC Guide to Common Medical Conditions". My name is Daniel C. Mizzi and I am a registered clinical pharmacist who understands the medical concerns of consumers. Unfortunately, due to many time constraints and other distractions, pharmacists often do not have the opportunity to properly counsel patients and evaluate their drug therapies. Thus, in response to the reality of pharmacy practice today, I created this blog-site to help improve consumer awareness, education, safety and healthcare outcomes. Ultimately, I hope this blog-site will help consumers make rational decisions about OTC medications and natural therapies used to treat common medical conditions.
