Can it be used to claim the self-medication tax deduction (special case of medical expenses deduction relating to switch OTC medicine)?
You cannot use both the medical expenses tax deduction and the self-medication tax deduction at the same time. You must choose between the two for your tax return. Please note that switch OTC medicine which qualifies for the self-medication tax deduction is not included in a Medical Expenses Notification because it is not covered by health insurance.
