Last year, the Drug Quality and Security Act, or DQSA, sponsored by Big Drug Companies, gave the FDA increased authority over compounding pharmacies, and the agency has responded by trying to regulate them out of existence. The new legislation passed by Congress in the December 2015 Omnibus Bill will temporarily help to save Estriol and…Details
