OTC drugs get boost in FDA budget request

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The Obama administration's $457.8 million fiscal year 2010 budget request for FDA's human drugs activities includes $15.1 million for over-the-counter products, which would represent a 1.1 percent increase over the fiscal 2009 appropriation of $14.9 million, according to the Department of Health and Human Services justification of estimates for appropriations committees document. Among FDA's planned activities for fiscal 2010, it intends to make "significant progress" on five OTC drug monographs and act on 100 percent of all Rx-to-OTC switch applications within 10 months of receipt, the agency says in its performance appendix. An FDA spokesman was unable to break the OTC drug request number down into more specific activities
