FDA vs. Over-the-Counter DMSA
Just as we had seen in 2009, the FDA again has declared DMSA to not be a supplement, halting U.S. citizens ability to source it over the counter (OTC) at home. In June, the FDA warned against the use of OTC chelation supplements because there are no FDA approved OTC chelator agents. A check at Vitamin Research Products (VRP) no longer lists DMSA as an available product, and those U.S. based sites that resold DMSA also list the products as out of stock.
