The article presents the result of a survey conducted by Leo J. Shapiro & Associates about the views of consumers on the issue of access to behind the counter (BTC) drugs in the U.S. Consumers claim that they preferred BTC because of their inability to see a doctor as well as to avail the right prescription of medicine. In fact, BTC could provide patients an alternative way in purchasing medications when physician's prescription is not available.
