Does the FDA approve compounded medications?

In the 1930's, the FDA was created to regulate manufacturers that produced and distributed drugs to the mass market. Compounding pharmacies do not produce or distribute to the mass market. State laws regulate compounding pharmacies. The chemicals that are used by compounding pharmacies are obtained from FDA approved and inspected facilities.
