  • Off-Label Drug Use: Pros and Cons

    What I’m going to do is talk about how the FDA got its start, what labeling means, what off-label means, give you some examples of some of those off-labeled uses, and then give, from my perspective, some of the pros and cons of off-label drug use. I admit I do not have all the answers by any means, but at least hopefully I’ll have some food for thought. And then if we have the time I’ll talk about some specific off-label uses of drugs that we use in our endocrinology practice without really thinking too much about it because it just makes so much sense to do.
