What should I do if my doctor prescribes a drug for off label use?
Ask about the risks and benefits - Ask if the drug has been approved for your condition and about the potential benefits and risks involved.
Talk to the pharmacist - Ask the pharmacist to review the package insert with you before filling the prescription.
Do some research - Look up the drug in medical reference book or on the Internet. Check whether your condition is an approved use, what the proper dose is, and what the proper duration of use is.
Inquire about other options - If you are not comfortable with a drug that does not meet FDA-approval for your condition, tell your doctor.
