Has the new “women's Viagra” finally been approved?

by , 04 June 2015

After being rejected twice, the new drug for female sex drive called flibanserin still remains unapproved.

But today, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will once again consider approving it.

Read on to find out what the FDA deems faulty when it comes to this new drug…

hy does the FDA keep rejecting flibanserin?

In a news report earlier this year, the FDA cited a lack of proof for the effectiveness of flibanserin. They also said it causes side effects like sleepiness and nausea, which in the long-term can be bad for a woman’s health.
 
Will it get the stamp of approval this time around?
 

Will flibanserin be another failed attempted of a drug to increase a woman’s sexual drive?

Sprout Pharmaceuticals owns flibanserin. But they’re not the first one to put time and resources into a drug to enhance women’s desire for sex. Pfizer, for example, had been trying to invent a successful female Viagra for over 15 years. They ended up giving up.

Pfizer says developing the drug was just too complicated because a woman’s sexual desire is very different to a man’s.
 

Why do some women have low sex drives anyway?

That’s a subject of debate. A lack of sexual desire can, some experts say, signal non-biological issues like stress or a troubled relationship. Others believe there’s a biological basis for libido.
 
Dr Mary Jane Minkin, a clinical professor at Yale School of Medicine in the US says it would be “nice” for a drug like this to work, because so many women seek better sex. “It’s important to them,” she says.
 
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if the FDA approves the drug later today…
