Drug New drugs thread

new drugs onthe market are added to the step1 exam, and biggest evidense is that FA is updating from 2011 to 2012 with new drugs,
i.e Cilostazol, which isnt in FA 2011 but is in 2012
and since the question pool is being change during the middle of may till the end of june [this has actually started... scary SH*T]...... if any of the test takers recall any drugs not in FA, could u please list it here, even if u dont recall the actual question about it

i dont intend to cause panic by this thread,,, but everybody will benefit from it in the few upcoming weeks, especially for people not using uptodate firstaid,, and since uworld also needs some time to catch up with new questions on the exam
i'm so bad i make medicine sick,
Imma show you how great i am

New drugs need at least 5 years to be in the market with established side effects profile and indications before they appear in USMLE exam.

You don't need to panic about them, just read your FA
