Eton Pharmaceuticals Inc. on Tuesday said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the company's Rezipres ephedrine hydrochloride injection for the treatment of clinically important hypotension occurring in the setting of anesthesia.

The Deer Park, Ill., drugmaker said Rezipres marks its second FDA-approved ready-to-use hospital injectable product.

Eton last month said the FDA had turned away its application for approval of a dehydrated alcohol injection for the treatment of methanol poisoning, saying it couldn't approve the application in its current form. Eton at the time said it believes it can address the agency's concerns in the coming months.

Trading in shares of Eton was halted Tuesday morning.
