Drugs Inactive Ingredients Database

$79 / year

The Inactive Ingredient Database provides information on inactive ingredients present in Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drug products. This information can be used by industry as an aid in developing drug products.

Complexity

The Inactive Ingredient Database provides information on inactive ingredients present in Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drug products. For new drug development purposes, once an inactive ingredient has appeared in an approved drug product for a particular route of administration, the inactive ingredient is not considered new and may require a less extensive review the next time it is included in a new drug product. For example, if a particular inactive ingredient has been approved in a certain dosage form at a certain potency, a sponsor could consider it safe for use in a similar manner for a similar type of product.
