Are compound pharmacies safe? 

  • – An outsourcing facility must comply with current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements.

  • – All compounded drugs must be compounded under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist within the facility.

  • – All compounded drugs must be inspected by the FDA.

Outsourcing facilities are a category of compounders established in 2013 by the Drug Quality and Security Act. Outsourcing facilities are inspected by FDA according to a risk-based schedule and are subject to increased quality standards. Drug compounding is often regarded as the process of combining, mixing, or altering ingredients to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient. Compounding includes the combining of two or more drugs. Compounded drugs are not FDA-approved. This means that FDA does not verify the safety or effectiveness of compounded drugs,. Currently, semaglutide, also known as Wegovy, is in short supply due to unprecedented demand after its approval. This has led many provider to offer "generic" or compounded formulations of the drug.​
