PAGB's OTC Directory



PAGB’s OTC Directory is designed to give health professionals such as GPs, practice nurses and pharmacists a helpful guide to the consumer healthcare products available without a prescription, including over the counter medicines, food supplements and substance based medical devices.

OTC directory of self care products

PAGB’s OTC Directory can help you with recommending suitable products for patients, providing information on how to use products safely and encouraging self care for self treatable conditions.

The OTC Directory has been a firm favourite in GP practices and pharmacies for years and now we’re delighted to bring you an online version.  We’ve launched the OTC Directory Online as a beta site so please contact us with your ideas and experiences of using it and help us develop it further.  Share your feedback by emailing

Healthcare professionals can search the site by category, product or ingredient. You can also refine your search using the options on the left of the screen, and you can show more or fewer results according to your preference. The results appear in alphabetical order but you can filter them by category, sub-category or manufacturer.

Each result can be opened to view more information about the product, including:
