More medicines available without a prescription and more responsibility for community pharmacists are two of the goals set out by the UK's new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
Akorn agrees with DoJ to pay $7.9m to settle allegations it deliberately sold three as Rx three ingredients moved to OTC. Mislabeling led Medicare Part D to pay for the drugs for around a year despite the products not being eligible for coverage.
“Who would have said that, looking forward two or three years ago, we would be where we are now?” says FDA OTC office director Theresa Michele. Monograph reform and introducing “additional conditions for nonprescription use” options for NDA OTCs each is a “real gamechanger.”

In this episode, HBW Insight talks to Haleon’s global head of regulatory intelligence and policy, Ian Urquhart, about the innovative and flexible approaches that regulators took to ensuring access to medicines during the coronavirus pandemic.

Strengthening supply chains, Rx-to-OTC switch and e-commerce are all on the agenda for the organization, which has published a series of papers in these areas to inform future self-care policy and regulation across the world.
