Do compounded medications require FDA Approval?
The FDA approval process is intended for mass-produced drugs made by large manufacturers. Since compounded medications are customized to meet the needs of each individual patient, it is not possible to send each formulation through the FDA’s drug approval process. This approval process takes years to complete and is prohibitively expensive, often costing millions of dollars.
At Infinity Pharmacy, we understand that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for a patient’s pharmaceutical needs. A patient may be allergic or sensitive to dyes or fillers in traditional medications or that patient may just have trouble swallowing pills. We use the most advanced compounding techniques to prepare medications that suit any patient’s specific needs. We are able to prepare compounds in a wide variety of dosage forms including: liquids, special flavorings, troches, creams, ointments, sprays, suppositories and much, much more.
