Overall, adult analgesics recorded a sharper increase in demand due to the pandemic. Consumers increased their consumption of OTC analgesics in order to prepare themselves for the lockdown which occurred in Ireland, as consumers bought pain medications to treat themselves and those in their household at home instead of going to the doctor.
However, the massive effect of stockpiling was prevented as the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU) warned members of the public not to stockpile medicine amid the initial panic advising that there were adequate stocks of medicine for people throughout Covid-19 precautions and that, people were allowed to have one month’s supply of any medicines that they require.
