I'll give you a few as there are so many. The first one is called Qutenza. It's used for pain after shingles called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). It's a patch. How it works is you have your doctor apply it to the area that hurts for one hour. They take the patch off after that one hour and it provides up to 12 weeks of pain relief for the patient. The second drug I would like to mention is called Saphris (asenapine). This medication is Subligual and is used for atypical antipsychotic for the treatment of schizophrenia and acute mania or mixed episodes associated with bipolar I disorder. The third drug I would like to mention is called Onsolis (fentanyl). This is used for breakthrough pain in patients that have cancer and are taking a long acting narcotic. There are a lot of new drugs approved by the FDA. has a great website that shows you new drugs that have just been approved by the FDA. Here's the website if you're interested. Hope this helps!
