Disclosures Between Parties – Compounded Medications
It is important to us that prescribers and patients are informed about the regulatory environment that relates to prescribed compounded medications. Recently, there have been many changes and challenges to National and State regulations that govern compounding pharmacies, physicians, and patients who use compounded medications.
Regulatory and legal requirements surrounding compounded medications suggest “full disclosure” be made between all parties in the patient-physician-pharmacist triad. As part of our disclosure, we want to reinforce that there are two basic categories of drugs that can be ordered via prescription; commercially available drugs and compounded medications (the term medication is used to further differentiate compounded drugs from commercially available drugs).
Commercially available drugs (e.g. Synthroid, Lasix, and Inderal) are:
- Manufactured by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspected firms that are compliant with Current Good Manufacturing Practices enforced by the FDA.
- Available by prescription and are usually obtained at retail pharmacies such as Wal-Mart, Rite Aid, and CVS.
- Reviewed and approved by the FDA for safety and efficacy.
- Approved by the FDA for one or more specific indications and contain package inserts that may explain usage, contraindications, warnings, precautions, adverse reactions, and drug incompatibilities.
Compounded medications are:
- Prepared by pharmacies that operate under state law, United States Pharmacopeia (USP) requirements, and USP Good Compounding Guidelines.
- Available by prescription from licensed pharmacies that are equipped to compound drugs, such as Coast to Coast Compounding LLC
- Not reviewed by the FDA or State Boards of Pharmacy for safety and efficacy.
- Not approved by the FDA for any indication and do not contain FDA reviewed package inserts that may explain usage, contraindications, warnings, precautions, adverse reactions, and drug incompatibilities.
We wish to emphasize that the FDA has not reviewed compounded medications for safety and efficacy via the New Drug Application process. Health care professionals should also take appropriate steps to educate their patients when a compounded medication is prescribed. The physician should inform the patient that a physician has the right to prescribe compounded medications based upon his/her knowledge of the patient’s health and his/her professional knowledge of the medication prescribed.
Additionally, the patient should be advised that the compounded medication:
- Is provided based upon the medical need of the individual patient.
- Is prepared by a licensed pharmacy.
- Has not undergone the FDA’s New Drug Application process and has not been reviewed or approved by the FDA for safety or efficacy.
