In a letter to Representatives Griffith, Green and DeGette, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) today clearly stated it is interpreting 503A to only permit the compounding of prescriptions for individual patients. This is in direct contradiction to Congressional intent as included in several "Statements of the Record" from Senators and Congressmen that nothing in the Drug Quality & Security Act was intended to interfere with state authority over the practice of pharmacy.
