The drug flibanserin (Addyi), better known as Viagra but female, first approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). UU in 2015, it is proven that it can improve sexual desire, excitement, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction and pain in pre-menopausal women.
The pill modifies three key chemicals for the brain, increasing dopamine and norepinephrine and decreasing serotonin, which increases libido in women and their sexual desire.
From the FDA they argue the need to combat hypoactive sexual desire because it can cause “anguish” in some women, so making an “effective pharmacological treatment” available can bring benefits.
Low sexual desire can be worrisome, and affect the self-esteem and sexual life of a woman, but there are safe and effective treatments, such as the use of this medication for example, for most women, medical treatment is just a aspect of the resolution of the problem, it is still not known exactly how Addyi works, but many scientists who have studied the divisions of this drug say that it seems to alter serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that can affect mood and many functions more bodily
The scientists evaluated data from five studies already disseminated and three not yet published in which a total of 5,914 women participated. “The evaluation of these data indicates that the changes promised by flibanserin are minimal” says the study.
For the same study, it is noteworthy that the researchers collected data in the Australian country more than 2900 women who are within a foot of the less participated in three studies of 6 months that compared Addyi with another type of drug (Placebo) that could Help keep your sexual desires more active. All the women had a hypoactive sexual desire disorder, this means that their sexual desire was insufficiently high to worry them, or to have a negative impact on a relationship.
It was the FDA that last August 18 approved the commercialization of flibanserin in this country after receiving the recommendation of a panel.
Is Addyi (Flibanserin) really works?
Addyi, unlike Viagra, does not modify in any direct way the performance of women in their sexual relations, but increases their sexual appetite, which has led part of the scientific community to doubt about its nature, compared to In a placebo, women who took a daily dose of Flibanserin reported a significant improvement in desire and in the other function areas evaluated by the index.
In what do coincide Ady supporters and detractors is to alert to the possible side effects of the pill, mainly responsible for delayed approval for several months.
According to studies, this pill has more negative than positive effects. The effects of the pill to increase sexual desire in Addyi women, which can be purchased half a year ago in the United States, are low, but the side effects are notorious.
On average, taking the pill involved just one more successful sexual intercourse in the space of two months, researchers in the Netherlands and Belgium reported. In contrast, among the side effects of ‘pink Viagra’ there is a clear increase in dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and exhaustion.
The pill should be taken daily. During the intake, you should not drink alcohol, because this can increase side effects.
The researchers recommend that before prescribing the pill to patients, there must be more studies. In addition, one should consider prescribing Addyi only as a part of the treatment, which should also include, for example, psychotherapy.
The pill is sold by prescription between USD 30 and USD 75.
