Italian term or phrase: medicinale da banco
In general terms, when calling a pharmaceutical product a "medicinale da banco" is the writer referring to an "over the counter" (OTC) drug?

Thanks very much!

agree  esoft: over the counter remedy/medicine is not available for self-serve. It means that you have to request it from the pharmacist although no prescription is required.
