There may be new relief on the way for people who suffer from migraines.

The FDA recently approved a new patch with a medication called Sumatriptan. It's already found in pills and nasal sprays to treat migraines, but this is the first time it's being used in patch form.

There are a few side effects, including skin irritation. The patch likely won't hit stores until the end of the year.
