    Notes: Family and friends are a much larger source of OTC information for Millennials (18-34) than for Gen Xers (35-49) and Baby Boomers (50+), per the study, with word-of-mouth rivaling healthcare practitioners as a resource for the younger generation. By contrast, Baby Boomers – who are the most apt to use OTC drugs – are more likely to rely on product advertising, a result which aligns with prior research on purchase influencers by generation. Overall, healthcare practitioners are the most trusted source of OTC information for each generation.
