LegitScript welcomes

LegitScript is pleased to welcome several new online pharmacies over the next few weeks. Today, we’re glad to announce that has been reviewed and approved. Welcome, Triangle!

Triangle Compounding is located in Cary, North Carolina, and is licensed or otherwise permitted to dispense prescription drugs in ten states. Something else we’re glad to note: Triangle Compounding is accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB).

The topic of compounding pharmacies highlights an important issue regarding prescription drug compounding: given some of the tension between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and compounding pharmacies, how should an organization like LegitScript, which is focused on verifying online pharmacies, deal with online pharmacies engaged in prescription drug compounding? A complete answer will be the subject of a future blog, but generally, we like to see pharmacies that are engaged exclusively or primarily in the business of compounding get accredited by PCAB. Of course, pharmacies have traditionally engaged in some amount of compounding (as the FDA has noted, and we don’t necessarily look for PCAB accreditation if a pharmacy engages in some limited amount of extemporaneous compounding.
