FDA pharmacists discuss the requirements for providing medication guides

Questions have arisen concerning FDA's recommendations for providing a Medication Guide to a patient when the drug is dispensed to a health care professional who then administers the drug to the patient. In some cases, these drugs are administered to a patient several times a day or several times a week, further confusing healthcare professionals responsible for distributing Medication Guides.

In November of 2011, the FDA published a guidance document with helpful information about when and where to distribute Medication Guides. This guidance document includes a quick-reference table for possible scenarios. The guidance document along with a complete list of drugs that have Medication Guides is available on the following FDA Medication Guides website.
