Self-medication is an important pillar of healthcare
… and as with treatment prescribed by a doctor, it should be undertaken on the basis of the available evidence. Evidence for Self-Medication (EfSM) presents compact reviews of relevant studies on OTC medicines and active substances in order to enable pharmacists and other healthcare professionals to provide the best possible – and evidence-based – advice on self-medication.
All EfSM articles have been peer-reviewed. They are available in German and English, and some of them in other languages as well.
