Many people who suffer from migraines have seen the medication Midrin and its equivalents slowly being removed from the market. They are very popular among people as a medication that is able to stop the migraine when you feel it coming on.
The reason why Midrin has been slowly removed from the market is interesting. The drug has been around for such a long time that it was put on the market before the current system for approving drugs was in place. Therefore its contents were not approved as a medical treatment. This was because the required clinical trials were not conducted, simply because they were not needed to be.
All is not lost for those people who find Midrin or its equivalent drugs an effective treatment for migraine. A new company that is based in Texas in the United States has started distributing a drug that is equivalent to Midrin. Unlike its predecessors, this company is working with the FDA to get the drug approved for the market by passing it through the required clinical trial process.
Unfortunately, a few drug companies have previously tried to get their Midrin equivalents though the approval process but the fact they have still been removed from the market suggest that they have been unsuccessful at passing the approval process.
Macoven is the company that is trying to get the drug approved and it seems that they are making significant progress. Those who are hoping to find an equivalent to Midrin should keep an eye on the progress of the FDA approval. The drug is currently on the market but if it fails the FDA process it will be removed.
