What is Formula 82F?

Formula 82F is a hair loss treatment that contains 5% Minoxidil, .25% Finasteride, and a topical steroid. Finasteride is a 5α-reductase inhibitor that works by decreasing the production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in tissues in the scalp. Minoxidil is a solution used to help hair growth in the treatment of male pattern baldness.

What’s the Problem?

An FDA inspection of MasterPharm’s manufacturing plant found conditions that violated the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act or related governing Acts, including:

  • The ISO classified aseptic processing areas have difficult to clean, particle-generating and visibly dirty equipment and surfaces.
  • Non-microbial contamination was observed in the production area.
  • Hazardous drugs were produced without providing adequate containment, segregation, and/or cleaning of work surfaces, utensils, and/or personnel to prevent cross-contamination.
  • The facility design allowed the influx of poor quality air into a higher classified area.
