This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To examine published Cochrane reviews for information about the efficacy of pain medicines available without prescription in the UK. Licensing of analgesics available without prescription in the UK is broadly similar to that in the USA, Australia, and much of Europe. It would also be our aim to provide sufficient information for individuals to work out for themselves what the efficacy may be for specific over-the-counter (OTC) products not included by name in the review.
