    • Overview

      This monograph reviews the history of the federal Rood Drug & Cosmetic Act amendment that created two classes of drugs in the United States; RxOnly and OTC. The monograph questions whether the continuation of a two class system can be justified. The steps required for marketing, labeling, packaging, and advertising of OTC drugs are reviewed.

      This monograph can be taken as a standalone 1 credit hour home study in law (ACPE accredited) but is also a component of the Pharmacy Regulatory Specialist curriculum. To qualify as a PRS, one must enroll in each of the five (5) live PRS pharmacy law webinars given throughout the year and successfully complete twenty-six (26) one-credit monographs. Once all requirements have been completed, the participant must pass a final comprehensive exam (70% or higher) and pay $199 for the recording and issuing of the Pharmacy Regulatory Specialist Certificate.
