Please visit ProtectMyCompounds and see how you can help to protect your right to access to compounded medicines. There is a bill in the US Senate right now that would have devastating effects on patient access to compounded medicines.

As currently written, this bill could prevent compounding pharmacists from making Estriol products. Estriol is a hormone naturally found in the female body that has been safely compounded for decades, and is a common component of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

 

As written, the bill could prevent compounding pharmacists from making Sustained Release or Slow-Release products. We have been doing this for quite a while now with no problems.

As written, one single person would have the authority to tell all compounding pharmacists what they can or cannot compound.  This would fall in the hands of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, but this person likely has never stepped foot in a compounding pharmacy.

This legislation was written in response to a mishap at a pharmacy in the Northeast that allegedly was manufacturing, not compounding.  The sad part of this whole issue is that this bill would have done NOTHING to prevent the error that occurred at that pharmacy.

Let your voice be heard today!
