The following Emergency Alert was released on December 8, 2014:

Pharmacy Compounding (LAC 46:LIII.Chapter 25)

  • Released by the Department of Health and Hospitals Board of Pharmacy
  • Effective December 5, 2014
  • The Board is exercising the emergency provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act  to amend its rules governing the compounding of drugs by pharmacies, especially certain portions of that Rule permitting pharmacists to compound medications intended for administration by practitioners without the necessity of a patient-specific prescription.
  • The preparation of compounds in the absence of a patient-specific prescription is now construed as manufacturing as opposed to compounding. Compounding by pharmacies is regulated by the board. Manufacturing is regulated by the federal FDA.
