How long must a drug company prove a drug safe and effective to win FDA approval?

When a drug company is trying to get the FDA to approve a new drug, my understanding is that they have to demonstrate that it's clinically effective and not acutely toxic for a finite period of time (weeks or months). But how long?

I Googled for this and, to my surprise, couldn't find it. Thank you!
