FDA’s “Additional Condition for Nonprescription Use” proposal is all about information which won’t be printed on DFLs but will be integral to whether some switch proposals’ approval.

In this episode, HBW Insight speaks to Victoria Nichols, project director of Free the Pill, a campaign supporting increased OTC oral contraceptive access in the US. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v.
