Sprout Phamaceuticals is touting the development of  a “female Viagara”, brand name Addyi (generic, Flibanserin). If it were a better drug, this could be a tremendous help to a lot of couples. Unfortunately, there are significant reasons for concern.

The problem is that it is hard to argue that the very modest benefits of the drug (4.4 satisfying sexual experiences per month on the drug versus 3.7 satisfying sexual experiences without it) justify the risk of the significant side effects which include dangerously low blood pressure and fainting, especially when used in combination with alcohol or with certain other common medications including antifungals used to treat yeast infections. Other common side effects include nausea, drowsiness and dizziness.

At her Catholic Patheos blog, Seasons of Grace, Kathy Schiffer has an excellent post on everything you need to know about Addyi and, more importantly, a much more effective approach to treating the very real problem of female Inhibited Sexual Desire Disorder.  It’s a terrific piece and I encourage you to check it out!

AND to learn more about effective, faithful solutions to a multitude of sexual problems, I invite you to pick up a copy of Holy Sex! The Catholic Guide to Toe-Curling, Mind-Blowing, Infallible Loving.
