ABSTRACT
The article presents updates about the drug approval decisions of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Asenaphine has been approved for treating schizophrenia and bipolar I disorder in adults. This is expected to carry a warning regarding increased mortality in elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis. Meanwhile, the agency lowered the approved age limit for levocetirizine to 6 months for children with chronic hives and perennial allergic rhinitis and two years for children with seasonal allergic rhinitis.
