What Kind of Vein Treatment Medications Are Used?
Many clients want to know what kind of vein treatment medications are used during their vein treatment procedures and if they’re FDA approved products.
At Vein911, only FDA approved medications are used to treat your spider veins and varicose veins.
Ask your vein care physician if they use FDA approved medications or if they use products made in a compounding pharmacy. Many vein care practitioners use compounded medications to increase profit. Below is a quote from the FDA:
“Pharmacy compounding is an age-old practice in which pharmacists combine, mix, or alter ingredients to create unique medications that meet specific needs of individual patients. It’s also a practice that is under FDA scrutiny—mainly because of instances where compounded drugs have endangered public health. In its traditional form, pharmacy compounding is a vital service that helps many people, including those who are allergic to inactive ingredients in FDA-approved medicines. But consumers need to be aware that compounded drugs are not FDA-approved. This means that FDA has not verified their safety and effectiveness. Poor practices on the part of drug compounders can result in contamination or in products that don’t possess the strength, quality, and purity required.”
The FDA does not approve compounded medications.
