Abstract:  It is apparent that the quality assurance program of a compounding pharmacy cannot adhere to the strict requirements of some of the general chapters in the United States Pharmacopeia. Those chapters containing such strict requirements that may impact pharmacy compounding should be studied thoroughly by the appropriate United States Pharmacopeia expert committee. Afterward, a determination should be made of which standards are reasonable and which can be modified and implemented to ensure timely preparation of quality compounded medications.
