Morphine Sulfate & Epinephrine added to COVID-19 Compounding List
FDA has updated two guidance documents that describe temporary policies for the compounding of certain human drugs during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The updates add morphine sulfate and epinephrine to the list of drugs covered by the guidance documents that are being issued to address shortages and access concerns affecting some drugs urgently needed for hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Below are the links to the updated guidance documents:
