Proposed rules governing compounding pharmacies inject the
FDA into the patient-physician relationship while doing little to ensure
consumer safety. As currently written, the FDA’s proposals will make it harder
for consumers to get many of the compounded medications they rely on.
Compounding allows doctors and pharmacist to create
medications that are the exact strength, dosage, and ingredient mix best suited
to treat an individual patient. Big pharmaceutical companies stand to greatly
benefit, since compounded drugs are often a cheaper, more individualized
alternative to patent-protected medications. Tell the FDA: protect consumers,
not the profits of Big Pharma!
