h o u s e c a l l s { fall 2016 } 23 A utumn is at our doorstep, and, along with cooler temps, we'll usher in school-acquired sniffles, indigestion caused by indulgent eating, headaches from holiday guests, scrapes from sports fumbles, bouts of the common cold, and on. Good thing you have a perfectly polished medicine cabinet ready and waiting to mend minor maladies, right? Or maybe—just maybe—you're like the rest of us, and anytime you need a quick fix you open your medicine cabinet only to find shelves cluttered with expired over-the-counters and odd-shaped Band-Aids. If you're part of the latter group, no worries. Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital clinical pharmacist Doug Hammond and Roper St. Francis affiliated family medicine doctor Todd Detar are here to help. With a bit of clearing out and straightening up, your medicine cabinet will be stocked and ready to face any and all at-home illnesses and injuries. DID YOU KNOW? ACCORDING TO THE CONSUMER HEALTHCARE PRODUCTS ASSOCIATION, THE AVERAGE AMERICAN HOUSEHOLD COUGHS UP ROUGHLY $ 3 3 8 ANNUALLY ON OVER-THE-COUNTER (OTC) PRODUCTS.
