Experimental Antidepressant Increases Women’s Sexual Desire

Similar to the mistake that made Pfizer millions, an experimental drug that was tested as an antidepressant may actually increase sexual desire and the number of satisfying sexual encounters in women.

Research, presented in France, introduced the drug flibanserin at a Congress for Sexual Medicine. Fans of this drug, called Flibanserin, have hailed it as the new female Viagra, while critics denounce the sexual side-effects as too minimal.

Researchers who have studied flibanserin have noticed that neurotransmitters in the central nervous system in the female research subjects altered sexual desire in a positive way.

For the study, 1,378 pre-menopausal women were given 100 milligrams of the drug or a placebo during a 6 month period across Europe and North America. The women were asked to record any satisfying sexual events and any absence of sexual desire accompanied by distress by the patient. The women all were in stable relationships and were all diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder.

After compiling data, researchers found that patients on medication increased their amount of sexually satisfying encounters from 2.8 in the first month to 4.5 in the final month. Patients on the placebo only had an increase of 2.7 to 3.7.

The study also picked up on an improvement in sexual functioning and distress related to sexual issues after taking the drug.

The most commonly reported side-effects included daytime tiredness, dizziness, anxiety and fatigue.

Clinical trials are being continued by Boehringer Ingelheim on the antidepressant drug that coincidently improves sexual desire. There has been no comment as to how long trials may last or if the FDA expects to approve the drug.
