New drugs that the FDA are studying and may aprove

Posted by football on April 7, 2007, at 0:01:26

"It takes on average 12 years and over US$350 million to get a new drug from the laboratory onto the pharmacy shelf. Once a company develops a drug, it undergoes around three and a half years of laboratory testing, before an application is made to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) to begin testing the drug in humans. Only one in 1000 of the compounds that enter laboratory testing will ever make it to human testing."


Possible future useful drugs for us:

Nuvigil - Just like Provigil, except that it works twice as long. Sounds great, as long they don't decide to charge twice as much, as well.

Zenvia - The company behind ii is trying to get it approved for "involuntary emotional expression disorder." I have no idea what the hell that is, but it sounds anxiety/depression related, so maybe it could be helpful.

Pristiq - A new SNRI being developed for major depression. Can be taken be by males and females, but has the additional benefit of helping with menopause problems in females.

Bifeprunox - A new atypical antipsychotic that produces far fewer side effects then its rival drugs.

Silenor - New sleep aid that has no possibility of dependency or abuse.

Invega - Already approved by the FDA, Invega is another atypical anti psychotic.

SPD465 - The drug company is trying to get it approved for adult ADHD. Has the same active ingredients as Adderall XR, but works for 16 hours.

Indiplon - Another sleep aid.
