Before a medicine can be widely used in the UK, it must first be granted a license. While no medicine is completely safe, a license indicates all the proper checks have been carried out and the benefits of a medicine are believed to outweigh the risks. This license is also known as a marketing authorisation. The license says what conditions the medicine has been approved to treat.
There are a number of reasons why a medicine may be unlicensed in the UK.
It may be waiting for a license to be granted by the Medicines Agency
It may still be undergoing testing in a clinical trial
The need for the medicine may be so limited that it is not economic for the manufacturers to apply for a license(which is an expensive process)
The medicine may be licensed in another country, and needs to be imported to the UK
The medicine may need to be made up as a ‘special product’ because it is not readily available. (this is often the case for liquid formulations of medicines which only have a license for the tablet form)
'Off-label’ use means that the medicine has a license for treating some conditions, but that the manufacturer of the medicine has not applied for a license for it to be used to treat your condition. In other words, the medicine may not have undergone clinical trials to see if it is effective and safe in treating your condition.
Your prescriber will consider all medical evidence available before prescribing an unlicensed medication or a medication 'off-label'. No medicine is completely free of side-effects and your prescriber will balance any risk of these against any benefits you may get, in consultation with you.
If you want to buy weight loss treatment from Quick Meds the process is discreet and efficient.
