Do you know why rupatadine is not available in the U.S.? Has the company that produces rupatadine applied for FDA approval and been rejected or has the company simply decided not to apply... and, if so, why?

No sorry I don't know.

It was developed and released in Spain as a generic medication for the world. Unfortunately the FDA does not recognize testing and trials that occur outside the United States and that are not sanctioned in advance by the FDA. Bringing a new medication to market in the United States runs around $20 million plus. At a cost of 20 to 40 cents per tablet, no pharmaceutical company can afford the cost of FDA required drug testing. It can be purchased through Canadian pharmacies.
