FDA Approves NuPathe Skin Patch to Treat Migraines

Posted Jan 18 2013 10:41pm

It’s not cheap if it is going to be around $59 as the article states that it would be priced around a competitive product that is given by injection. BD 

Below is a little information from the website:    

ZECUITY is not for people with risk factors for heart disease unless a heart exam is done and shows no problem. imageYou have a higher risk for heart disease if you:
 have high blood pressure
 have high cholesterol levels
 smoke
 are overweight
 have diabetes
 have a family history of heart disease
 are a female who has gone through menopause
 are a male over age 40

NuPathe Inc. (PATH), a maker of neurological and psychiatricimage medicines, won U.S. approval to sell the first skin patch to treat migraines.

The Food and Drug Administration cleared the treatment, called Zecuity, which delivers sumatriptan, the most-prescribed migraine headache medication, through a mild electrical current, Conshohocken, Pennsylvania-based NuPathe said yesterday in a statement.

Anido declined to say how much the patch would cost, though he indicated it would be comparable to the $95 that a similar medication costs as an injection.
