General Sales List medicine

A UK term for a medicine which has been deemed safer than the so-called P medicines (“behind-the-counter medicines”) when taken correctly. GSL medicines can be sold—albeit in small quantities (e.g., packages of up to 16 pills for paracetamol)—in general shops with no pharmacy training required for sale. All the products must be sold in manufacturers’ original packs.

GSLs Examples
Ibuprofen, paracetamol, laxative, antihistamines.
