The hazards of taking certain OTC Drugs is so prevalent that Dr.Oz has dedicated a recent show to discussing what dangers may lurk in every medicine cabinet. He points out that some OTC drug side effects can be fatal, and the public needs to be aware of this. Dr. Oz explained how there are over 600 OTC medications that contain Tylenol, also known as APAP and Acetaminophen. This compound may be found in: Dayquil, Excedrin and Midol, along with many others. If a person takes more than one product containing Tylenol, the increased dosage can result in potentially fatal liver damage, which requires a liver transplant. For this same reason, the Ace Innovation Group created OCT Plus, a free mobile app. This app houses a great deal of useful medical information on over the counter medications allowing the user to research OTC medications and avoid an accidental overdose.
OTC Plus seems to be the solution to this dilemma. Until now, there was no way for the average person to know how to decide which OTC medication was best for their symptoms. Consumers no longer have to stroll down a pharmacy aisle and gamble on which OTC medication to buy. They only need to input their symptoms into the OTC Plus app, and recommended medications will appear. The OTC Plus mobile app is available for both iPhone/iPad and Android platforms. Not only is this app potentially lifesaving but it also saves money too. The app gives access to coupons for many of the OTC drugs as well.
ACE Innovation Group has loaded their free app with a huge selection of OTC-Medications and their accompanying data. This lifesaving free mobile app has been heralded by various drug hazard watch groups as an ingenious solution to over the counter medications being wrongfully used and given to family members.
The doctor behind this new app is Sandeep Grewal, M.D., and the developer of this new App was Myo Sandar Nwe, BE. Dr. Grewal is Board Certified in Internal Medicine. Dr. Grewal was given an Innovation in Healthcare Award 2013 by The Charlotte Business Journal, who also named him to the Top Forty under Forty List. Dr. Grewal has over 10 years of experience in medicine and technology, and is a Board Member of several reputable hospitals and technology companies. He is also well known as a noted author and inventor.
