Compound Drugs

Our primary goal is your safety. TRICARE is looking at the safety of compound drug prescriptions.

  • Your pharmacist makes compound prescriptions for you specifically.
  • These compounds may contain bulk chemicals.
  • Many bulk chemicals aren't approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • The FDA is currently reviewing a new law concerning the safety of compound drugs. Once the FDA implements key aspects of the new law, we will re-examine our policy.

We will post new information on this page as it’s available.
