U.S. Congress and FDA, Congressman Edward J. Markey
Jan Chambers, President, National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association
Oversee the safe manufacture of generic and compounded medications.
Millions of people rely on safely made medications. For much of its history, the FDA has approved and scrutinized only the development of new drugs. The FDA has largely ignored compounding pharmacies by leaving their regulation mostly in the hands of state pharmacy boards, which have created a patchwork of rules and standards.
