Are compounded drugs approved by the FDA?

The FDA approval process is intended for mass-produced drugs made by manufacturers. Because compounded medications are personalized for individual patients, the federal government has approved the use of compounded medications for those individuals who have received a prescription for that specific compounded medication. All pharmacists and pharmacies engaged in compounding are subject to oversight by both federal and state authorities.
