At long last: Viagra, move over  — Flibanserin is here.  Touted as a cure for hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in women, it’s being called a libido pill by some and Spanish Fly by others.

This drug’s been around awhile, but has twice been kicked back by the FDA as too dangerous (it alters two specific brain chemicals).  Instead of fixing the problems with the pill, Sprout Pharmaceuticals has instead doctored the paperwork, hoping that will suffice.  The FDA’s history says it might.

“The brain plays an important role in regulating a woman’s sexual desire, and one of the root causes of persistent and recurrent low sexual desire, or HSDD, stems from an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain.  Flibanserin is believed to work by correcting this imbalance and providing the appropriate areas of the brain with a more suitable mix of brain chemicals to help restore sexual desire,” Stephen Stahl, a psychiatry professor at the University of California San Diego, School of Medicine explained.

Oh, yeah — no way THAT’s gonna be abused.


Be seeing you.
