A. Should FDA initiate a rulemaking to codify its interpretation of section 503(b) of the action regarding when an active ingredient can be simultaneously marketed in both prescription drug product and an OTC drug product?
See general comment
I am responding to this issue with the "Morning After Pill" in mind. This drug should NOT be available OTC which would allow young people unaware of the consequences to obtain it. Minors would have the opportunity to access this drug without parental knowledge even when they are still living with parents/guardians who are responsible for their health. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THE SALE OF THIS PRODUCT OF THE BARR LAB TO BE SOLD WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION!
Thank you for your attention to this critical health and moral matter.
