Despite a long history of safe use and patient need, the FDA is in the process of reviewing and potentially blocking patient access to ingredients used in compounded medications

“Thousands of patients are at risk of losing access to life-saving compounded medications, and we need your help.”

-The American Association of Naturopahtic Physicians  (AANP)

The FDA’s current position is that if there is an approved pharmaceutical equivalent that will address the condition, the compounded ingredient is not needed. By dismissing why patients need personalized medicine, the FDA is discounting functional medicine uses and only taking into consideration whether an ingredient addresses a specific disease.

“In September, the FDA published a draft rule that – if finalized as currently written – would make 26 ingredients illegal to compound. “

Pleasesubmit comments to the FDA byDECEMBER 4th, 2019 using the link below.  To assist the AANP, please comment ONLY on the 26 ingredients listed – we’ve been informed comments mentioning other ingredients will be ignored by the FDA.
