FDA Approves "Female Viagara" With A Strong Warning

A controversial drug to treat low sexual desire in women won approval from U.S. health regulators on Tuesday, but with a warning about potentially dangerous low blood pressure and fainting when taken with alcohol.

Moreover, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the first approved drug for the condition, to be sold under the brand name Addyi, will only be available through certified health care professionals and pharmacies due to its safety issues.

The drug has been nicknamed "female Viagra" in media reports, even though it does not work like Pfizer Inc's blockbuster Viagra pill for men that in 1998 became the first approved drug for erectile dysfunction.

Flibanserin needs to be taken every day. Unlike Viagra, which affects blood flow to the genitals, flibanserin works on the brain. It is similar to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRI's, that include antidepressants such as Prozac.


Pink Viagra

Umm, no. Just no.

Ladies, you'd have to be a complete and utter moron to take this drug. I wish they would have rejected their application again but as the article states after "strong lobbying" it was finally approved...but with a strong warning.

If you are premenopausal and need head pills to get you in the mood? There is a LOT more going on with you than this can fix...IMHO, most women who have lost their desire have lost it because their SO is a total douche...That's usually the #1 reason. The second reason is because they are EXHAUSTED from working full time, cooking, cleaning, raising the kids, etc. While their douchey SO's kick back, drink beers and watch TV.

Some women spend their entire lives like this. Unhappy, unfulfilled and unsatisfied and that, to me, is SO SAD. Others? They lose 150-200# of douchery and meet someone else which normally takes care of their "mood" or urge problem. Some even stay married but find their satisfaction outside of the marriage...

Now, I am not being all anti-man. I am very happily married and I do not forsee me ever having to take the pink pill, lol. I know it is a two way street. But fella's, listen...If you only knew what a little flirting and kindness, a compliment (an honest one) about her appearance, or heck even doing the dishes or vaccuming does for your lady (and you); you'd be pinching her hind end, telling her she's beautiful AND have a chore chart with YOUR name up top!


Just saddens me that THIS is their supposed fix?? An "SSRI type" of drug?? What a terribly sad world we live in!

Does this surprise me at all? No. Does the FDA practically approve any pharm. drug? Yes. Soon there will be a drug for women to like anal sex more.

People get desperate and will unfortunately go to even dangerous lengths to remedy a problem.
I'm afraid many women will try this drug to get the spark back in their marriages.

You forgot to mention that it is also a side effect of certain medications to manage chemical imbalances in the brain. Through no fault of their own, or their SO, it drops the libido to near zero. How is that the SO's problem? An SO could be the most attentive and loving partner, yet, this side effect has more to do with her conditon that that.

Something smells fishy about this drug. You have to take it for weeks or even months to see an improvement?

Yes, that it works directly on the brain and has certain side effects is troubling, but I'd like to address what you bolded in your OP. I read an article today written by a lady who went through the 8 month trial. From what she described, the will to desire had nothing to do with flirtiness or little things to help "turn her on." Even though she could have orgasms and such, it was simply her desire to be a sexual creature had, in essence, "switched off" and it was the pink pill that stimulated her brain to cause her body to respond sexually, and for her to more easily get in the mood when she had difficultly before.

I'm certainly not advocating drugs, but I just wanted to point out that the perception you seem to have about getting women in the mood might extend to an onset of a mental and biological change and not somethig that her partners is failing to do, at least not in every case.

And since I'm on a mobile device, i really can't articulate better or find the article.

Yeah, right. Change you brain chemistry some more, become dependent, and probably won't even get it paid for like Viagra is. No thanks is right.

The best thing for my desire will always be a desirable man with a desirable mind. In all seriousness though, there are better ways.

Well we know the guys have a problem when they go to the strip club and can't get it up for a skinny blonde with loose morals (just kidding kinda) that a little blue pill may be necessary.
But if a woman can't get it up for a hot sexy stranger with tons of money then maybe she needs a little pink pill too.

Who am I to say women shouldn't want this or would be bad for society. At least it's better than seeing them eat chocolate and ignoring/complaining about men. They could have a little pink pill that makes them wanna have as much fun as their sig other.

This is a win-win

This is a splendid idea. What took so long? I support adding this to all municipal water supplies immediately. Everyone wins.

And that's the last thing anyone would want? Why are you "afraid" of that?

Unless she is sleeping with someone else and doesn't want to sleep with the SO, especially if married.

How long until we start having people blame this drug for causing women to go crazy and get violent?

It's similar to an SSRI, and those are popular scapegoats for mass shootings.

I take "strong lobbying" to be bribes. Business as usual.

This should probably go into RANT LOL. What about the men who do almost everything for their women, but the women still behave like spoiled little turds and use sex as a weapon? Your OP was supposed to be about some ridiculous drug, not some ridiculous stereotypical opinion that I one can usually find on feminazi forums ;-)

Cheers - Dave
