I want to express(I'm not sure whether the sentence is correct or not): Instead of spending a long time waiting for the government's approval for a new drug, they can purchase those effective but not approved ones and benefit sooner.

Can I say:

1: they can purchase those effective yet not being approved ones

2: they can purchase those effective yet without approval ones

How to write it in good English?

    Your sentence sounds more natural if you refactor the pre-modifying phrase (effective but not approved) as a post-modifying relative clause: "Instead of spending a long time waiting for the government's approval for a new drug, they can purchase those (drugs) that are effective but not (yet) approved... ." – Shoe Oct 22 at 7:12
