Quinacrine and FDA Approval

The FDA has approved the drug Quinacrine for many uses. However, the FDA has not yet approved Quinacrine for female sterilization. Therefore, Quinacrine Sterilization is currently an 'off-label' use. Using an off-label drug is a perfectly legal, acceptable, and common practice.
For example, doctors have treated Lupus patients with off-label Quinacrine for many years.
