OTC Analgesic Market

, 15 May 2019 -- OTC Analgesic Market grows due to the higher demand, presence of major pharmaceutical product manufacturers, better health care reforms in terms of patient care

Analgesics are counter pain drugs, which assist in regulating pain for a period of time, until and unless it is completely eliminated. OTC analgesic drugs are used by individuals devoid of the need for any prescription. Drugs that do not require prescription are classified as OTC analgesics. OTC analgesics are available in brand and generic formulations as tablets, capsules, creams, sprays, and patches.

Browse Report Summary:

The international association for the study of pain defines pain as a discomfort experience due to a possible tissue injury. Pain is classified into three categories: mild, moderate, and severe. Typical conditions associated with pain are headache, musculoskeletal injuries, dysmenorrhea, and others such as toothache. Various kinds of OTC pain relief products are available in the market. These constitute three active ingredients: paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin.

Paracetamol is the commonly used OTC analgesic. Its analgesic property is analogous to that of aspirin and ibuprofen. It does not carry any anti-inflammatory effects. Paracetamol inhibits prostaglandin synthesis within the central nervous system. It is the first choice of analgesic for pain management. Prolonged use of paracetamol may enhance the anticoagulant effect of coumarins. Common side-effects associated with paracetamol are hypersensitivity, rare cases of blood dyscrasias (including thrombocytopenia and agranulocytosis). Aspirin is another common OTC analgesic. Aspirin is analgesic, antipyretic, antiplatelet, and anti-inflammatory. The inhibition of cyclooxygenase results in analgesic effect of aspirin. Antagonistic effects of aspirin are epigastric pain, gastrointestinal ulceration, nausea and vomiting, hypersensitivity, and gout.

The OTC analgesic drugs market can be segmented based on route of administration, distribution channel, and geography. In terms of route of administration, the OTC analgesics drugs market can be classified into oral, topical, intramuscular administration, and intravenous. Based on distribution channel, OTC analgesics drugs market can be divided into hospital pharmacies, drug stores, retail drug stores, and e-commerce.

Side-effects such as constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, and heart attack associated with OTC analgesic drugs is one of the key restraints of the market. OTC analgesic drugs may also cause serious damage to the brain in rare cases. Long-term usage of painkillers or analgesics can lead to addiction and drug overdose. According to a study, painkillers are the second most abused substances, after marijuana, in the U.S. Therefore, uncertainty regarding increase in stringent regulations on OTC analgesics is expected to significantly hamper the OTC analgesic market.
