Course Overview:

Dietary supplements are widely available and promoted for a variety of conditions. Federal regulation of dietary supplements is governed by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act and mandates the FDA to treat dietary supplements more as a food than a drug. As a result, marketing of dietary supplements is very different from that of a medication. This course provides information on regulation of dietary supplements, what is required in terms of product labeling and safety, as well as data on recent FDA actions against dietary supplement claims.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this continuing education lesson, the pharmacist will be able to:

  • Discuss the definitions of food, drug, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and medical devices. 
  • Describe the labeling requirements of a dietary supplement. 
  • Explain the implications of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in respect to dietary supplements. 
  • Discuss recent FDA actions taken against various dietary supplements.
