Hello rick3rai. The FDA approves all drugs being marketed, manufactured in the United States. Possibly a issue over a patent, or another legal issue. Regards pledge

Even when a drug is approved for specific purposes in other countries, a drug still needs to go through clinical trials, even when they're used in other countries, for whatever illnesses they're used to treat in the other countries, before they can be approved by the FDA for use in this country. Many times drugs that are commonly used in other countries don't even get to the clinical trial phase because there are already so many drugs on the market that are already being used in the US for whatever illness/condition the drug treats. And as Pledge mentioned, sometimes it's also an issue with the patent.

In the early 1990's, It was here in the U.S. I took it for several years, and for me worked really well but they took it off the market.
