This monograph explains why some currently marketed drugs that are dispensed by pharmacists have not been approved by the FDA. The process through which the FDA is currently reviewing unapproved drugs is discussed. Legal case studies are used to illustrate the factors that can lead to the marketing of unapproved drugs and the challenges faced in pharmacy when evaluating the safety and efficacy of unapproved drugs in the care of specific patients.
