IACP Files Comments for FDA's Draft Guidance Compounded Drug Products That Are Essentially Copies

IACP has submitted comments to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the Draft Guidance:Compounded Drug Products That Are Essentially Copies of a Commercially Available Drug Product Under Section 503A of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act



 "IACP understands and supports the need to protect public health. However, when providing guidance, it is essential that FDA adheres to the plain language of statutes and Congressional intent to preserve patient and prescriber access to vital compounded medications. Providing clear direction as to the FDA’s thoughts regarding this important subject help not only guide Agency investigators during inspections but gives additional insight to the pharmacy industry as a whole on what the FDA expects from this practice of pharmacy.  


IACP is concerned with several main points of the proposed guidance, which we outline below, and we look forward to starting a dialog with the Agency on proposed solutions to the issues raised by our Academy."

Folks, these are some PANSY arguments from IACP. I expect much more forceful representation. These jokers are trying to gut our profession, which I have worked in for over 25 years and we all face going back to retail or retiring. I didn't work for NECC, didn't kill anyone nor did I overcharge or dispense crappy products, yet I get punished, along with every patient and doctor in America for one companies illegal behavior. If the FDA gave a CRAP about public health, they would recognize that pharmacists are quite capable of making MANY products with BETTER quality, BETTER design and BETTER PRICES than their jacked up system of tyranny. Do something, while there still is an IACP. You are on borrowed time, just like us.
