Abstract

Frequent users are more likely than infrequent users to report that they would seek care for minor symptoms. Infrequent users tend to self-treat for 3 to 7 days, after which time physician advice is sought. Efforts to teach patients optimal timing of use for different symptoms may be an effective intervention.
