๐Ÿ’Š What is Off-Label Prescribing?

The FDA requires that drugs go through a clinical testing process to establish that theyโ€™re safe and effective to treat a particular condition. Healthcare providers generally may prescribe the drug for an unapproved use when they judge that it is medically appropriate for their patient. This type of prescribing is called โ€œoff-labelโ€ prescribing. Off-label prescribing practices are sometimes validated by clinical experience and research and may be a widely recognized clinical practice. Roman-affiliated providers have the discretion to prescribe certain drugs off-label based a patientโ€™s unique medical history, symptoms, and preferences.
