    Default How to find out what drugs are approved/pending in the UK/Europe

    Hi,

    I know in the US you have the FDA database to show which drugs are appoved but is there anything similar for the UK?
    I'm basically trying to find out the status of Sulfacetamide / Sodium Sulfacetamide. I've been waiting for this product for years to treat my seb derm / rosacea. The years keeps going by and still no sign it. I'd love to know why a facial wash thats been available in the US for ages is not available anywhere else?!

    Thanks

    EMEA is the European counterpart to the FDA. But I dont know if the UK has a seperate instance that needs to approve it aswell.

    I've found some interesting information from the EU's Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (which was formerly called the Scientific Committee on Cosmetic Products). I like the EU sources because they provide more details than FDA opinions. http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientifi...y/index_en.htm

    I'm not sure if this is link is what you're looking for, but it might be a good place to start, and I don't how the UK regulates drugs.
