Texas Supreme Court States Office-Use is a Dispensing Activity

In a closely watched case for compounders, the Texas Supreme Court upheld both that pharmacists and compounding are covered under the state's Medical Liability Act as well as confirms that the practice of office-use as provided for within Texas Law are considered "dispensing."  

Accordingly, we hold that a pharmacist who compounds a drug for office use pursuant to a
practitioner’s lawful order, as authorized by the Pharmacy Act, is “dispensing” the drug whether or
not the order identifies the patients to whom the drug will be administered.

The case is Randol Mill Pharmacy, et. al., v. Miller. Please click here for a copy of the ruling.

This ruling is especially pertinent in light of the ongoing interpretation by the FDA that office-use is not a dispensing activity and is prohibited by the Drug Quality & Security Act.
