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