The marketing and online advertising of both OTC (Over The Counter) and Rx Only (Prescription Use Only) Medical Devices have come under increased FDA scrutiny over the past few years. With recent reactive FDA regulation interpretations, and guidance’s enforced as regulations, advertising and marketing in print and broadcast media, online, and especially via social networking all are being FDA monitored like never before.
With warning letters abound,the FDA is not just limiting their reach to OTC products.
As Rx only devices are promoted to consumers, to talk with their doctors about ‘significant pain reducing’, ‘faster recovery’, and ‘able to detect illnesses in the early stages’, the FDA frequently takes action. Their actions can also result in an increase demand for inspection activity as well as additional oversight and review during concept market submissions.
