Migraine sufferers are about to get one more treatment option in the form of the new Zelrix Migraine Patch. The Zelrix Migraine Patch has recently been given the green light by the FDA to begin filing for a New Drug Application.
The Zelrix Migraine Patch was created by Pennsylvania-based NuPathe and uses a system called SmartRelief to administer medication. SmartRelief uses a tiny electrical current to move medication through the body in a process known as iontophoresis. All of this may sound a little confusing, but all it means is that a new non-oral migraine medication is on its way.
