Another prediction and warning from a pharmacist in 2002!!
But Larry Sasich, a pharmacist with the Washington, D.C., consumer group Public Citizen, warns that compounders are laying the foundation for "two classes of prescription drugs in America." One is manufactured drugs, closely monitored by the FDA; the other, compounded drugs, where quality is a matter of trust among doctor, pharmacist and patient.
Sasich sees no grounds for such trust. Pharmacy compounding, he contends, has become a haven for the sale of unapproved, ineffective and potentially dangerous drugs.
