Why are compounds not approved by the FDA?

There are benefits associated with compounding, many of which focus on providing patients with pharmaceutical products that have been customized to fit their own unique needs when standard marketed drugs fail to do so. Compounding primarily occurs in pharmacies by licensed pharmacists. As each prescription is tailored to each patient, the compound has not undergone specific premarket review, therefore it is not FDA approved.
