FDA has released a list of nominations to its “Demonstrably Difficult to
Compound” (DDC) list, which is supposed to identify drugs that cannot safely be
compounded because of their complexity. Included on this list are certain kinds
of safe, bioidentical hormones such as progesterone (including progesterone
with estradiol), human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), testosterone. If these are
banned, drug companies would then have a government-enforced monopoly—even
though the pharmaceutical versions or their alternative products are often
substandard or even dangerous.
pharmacists say these are not difficult to compound and are not dangerous.
Thirty-eight percent of the nominations came from one of the largest
multinational pharmaceutical companies in the world—GlaxoSmithKline.
