Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - United States Pharmacopoeia


These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

United States Pharmacopoeia
Question: I have been using the drug information you provide, but I do not know what it means when you have a "USP" following a generic name.

Answer: USP refers to a rather large book called United States Pharmacopoeia. This is a complete listing of every approved drug in the United States. There used to be an occasional listing called NF(National Formulary); however, now each drug is USP.
