The pill is to boost women’s sexual desire. The “little pink pill” is one step closer to going on the market. After saying no twice, an FDA panel finally recommended the first medication for female sexual dysfunction. Unlike drugs for men, like Viagra, which improve blood flow, Flibanserin is an anti-depressant that works on the pleasure center of the brain.
The pill, however, comes with side effects, which include insomnia, nausea and dizziness. As always, women will need to decide whether the risks versus the benefits compared to other treatment alternatives are worth it for them.
The panel of Food and Drug Administration advisers voted 18-6 in favor of Sprout Pharmaceutical’s daily pill, flibanserin, on the condition that the company develops a plan to manage its risks.
Neogyn is available from Dr. Susan Kellogg Spadt, located at the Center For Pelvic Medicine.
A new study spearheaded by the Southern California Center for Health & Survivorship Medicine and the Academic Urology Center for Pelvic Medicine concludes that the vulvar-soothing cream Neogyn meaningfully alleviates these symptoms in otherwise-healthy post-menopausal women.
Dr. Susan Kellogg Spadt, PhD, sexual health expert and Director of Female Sexual Medicine at the Academic Urology Center for Pelvic Medicine outside of Philadelphia, and another of the study’s authors, points out that any woman might develop vaginal pain and discomfort, but the following categories of women are especially vulnerable: menopausal and post-menopausal women, birth control users, cancer survivors and women with certain chronic medical conditions.
