Frequently Asked Questions for Pharmacists on Product Selection

Q: Must a drug be rated AB in FDA’s Orange Book to be used in product selection in North Carolina?

A: The North Carolina Product Selection Law does not refer to the Orange Book rating published by the Food and Drug Administration. That rating can be useful in determining what is used in product selection but it is not necessarily determinative. The ultimate decision on equivalency is up to the pharmacist.
