I am both in the pharmaceutical industry and a consumer that uses bio-identical testosterone that is custom made by my pharmacy as prescribed by my doctor based upon test results that determined the right dose for my needs. I simply can't tolerate the dose that the drug companies have determined is benefical for them to produce so they can maximize their profits. My doctor worked with my pharmacist and determined the best medication therapy based ufor my individual needs, this has made a tremendous difference in my life, Should the FDA make compounding medications illegal I will suffer greatly!
I have read reports from the JAMA that suggest 40% of the population can't take medications made by the drug comanies and require their medications be custom made for one reason or another, who will speak for these people? I hope the FDA considers what is right for people and not be influenced by the drug companies and their efforts to monopolize the market based upon their bottom line.
