Women’s Viagra May Be Coming



A failed anti-depression drug may end the elusive search for the female version of Viagra.

During its initial clinical testing, flibanserin didn’t cheer women up; rather, many who took it reported “an increased libido that they liked.” This led to a series of studies in which pre-menopausal women in three countries went on a 24-week course of the drug and documented in a diary the intensity of their sexual desires and how many satisfactory sexual encounters they had.
Researchers found 100 milligrams a day of the drug resulted in “significant improvements” on both fronts relative to women who took a placebo. While Viagra and other erectile dysfunction medications work on the blood supply, flibanserin achieves its action on the fairer sex by heading directly for a female’s sexually complicated brain.
