How Can Physicians Reduce the Risks Associated With Compounded Intrathecal Medications?
"Medical professionals must be rigorous in evaluating the sources of the compounded medications that they prescribe for intrathecal delivery, said Joshua P. Prager, MD, MS, at the 16th Annual Meeting of the North American Neuromodulation Society. Ideally, prescribers should visit the facilities that compound the medications so that they can evaluate their operations. Dr. Prager, Director of the Center for Rehabilitation of Pain Syndromes at the University of California, Los Angeles, made his remarks in a lecture directed at physicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, pain specialists, neurologists, and any physician who prescribes or uses compounded medications."
