English term or phrase: misbranded drug
A prescription drug that is dispensed without a valild prescription
Susanne Lysinger
German translation:verschreibungspflichtiges Medikament, das ohne das erforderliche Rezept erworben [abgegeben] wird
Explanation:
Going strictly by the very narrow definition of misbranded drugs that you gave above. I'm not sure that there is a short and pithy German term for it, you might need to use a longer phrase.
The choice of the verb would depend on the point of view (consumer / dispensery).

I'm not sure that Zulassung would be appropriate here, the definition of misbranded drugs does not refer so much to the approval process as it does to the misrepresentation of the active ingredients, and/or the validity of the prescription.

Under current law, a prescription drug is misbranded if it (1) contains any quantity of certain substances, (2) is one of certain habit-forming drugs, (3) has a toxic or harmful effect or its method of use is unsafe, or (4) is a cosmetic limited to use under the professional supervision of a licensed professional or sold under a prescription. Under the act, a prescription drug is misbranded if it is not administered, dispensed, prescribed, or otherwise possessed or distributed in accordance with federal and state law (see BACKGROUND).
