Generic Makena

What About Compounded Hydroxyprogesterone?

Hydroxyprogesterone injections (sometimes known as 17P injections) have been available through compounding pharmacies for quite some time, long before Makena was approved. These compounded injections cost much less than Makena and have long been used to prevent preterm birth.
 
Usually, once a manufacturer performs all the necessary studies and receives FDA approval, compounding pharmacies are no longer allowed to make such products. However, the FDA recognizes that this is a unique situation and has stated that it will allow compounding pharmacies to continue to make hydroxyprogesterone injections, at least for the time being.
