Female Viagra: Worth A Try Or Too Risky?

It looks like we ladies finally have our version of what I’m sure is going to be called the female Viagra, but before we start jumping up and down with excitement, a new study says that the new drug has its limited benefits and possible negative side effects.

THE FDA has approved Addyi, a drug produced by Sprout Pharmaceuticals. And while it might help women get into the groove of things, it comes with a warning label.

Addyi’s label has a boxed warning — the strongest kind — saying the drug should not be used by those who drink alcohol, since that can increase the risk of severely low blood pressure and fainting. It is also not to be used with certain other drugs and by people with liver impairment.

The pill can be prescribed or dispensed only by doctors and pharmacists who watch an online slide presentation and pass a test of their comprehension. Women are advised to stop using the drug if they see no effect after eight weeks.

The most common side effects were dizziness, sleepiness, nausea and fatigue, which is why the pill is recommended for use before bed.

The pill was originally formulated as an antidepressant. While it failed to treat depression, researchers noticed that it did increase sexual desire. Sprout Pharmaceuticals then tested it for safety and effectiveness in more than 11,000 women before winning FDA approval.
