N.B. convenience stores told to stop selling some nonprescription drugs, like Tylenol

Gas stations and convenience stores across New Brunswick have been told to stop selling some nonprescription drugs. 

CTV Atlantic reports some of the drugs include popular medications like Gravol, Advil, Aspirin, and Tylenol. 

Stores are being asked to return the drugs on the list provided by the New Brunswick College of Pharmacists. 

The college tells CTV Atlantic the move is meant to protect the public. 

Pharmacist Dennis Abud says it's all about better patient safety as some people may not realize a drug could interact with something they're already taking.

According to the New Brunswick Pharmacy Act, wholesalers were prohibited from selling limited access drugs to anyone that is not registered with the college.  

Unregulated stores could face a fine if they don't stop selling the products.
