OpenFDA is awesome! I wish we had anything similar here in the UK.

Is there a way to get drug approval dates via the API? I'm interested in knowing what date a drug was approved by the FDA.

I think this exists in the API for devices, but I can't see the information in queries for drugs.

The data exists on the FDA website, but it would be awesome if these could be retrieved through the API too.

  • It does not seem to be available but you can scrape it.

It doesn't look like that information is available. Might want to file a feature request on GitHub.
