female viagra A US government panel has urged regulators to approve a drug to treat low sexual desire in women, nicknamed the “female Viagra”.The experts backed flibanserin, but said it must carry warnings about strong possible side effects including fainting and tiredness.The final decision now moves to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)The FDA has rejected the drug twice since 2010 but it usually follows the advice of its experts.Women taking the drug reported between 0.5 and one more sexually satisfying event per month, results experts admitted were “modest”.

One patient who received the drug explained its appeal.

“I want to want my husband, it is that simple,” said Amanda Parrish. “For us, flibanserin is a relationship-saving and life-changing drug.”

Lobbying by the drug’s developer, Sprout Pharmaceuticals, was aided by the women’s rights group even the score, which has accused the FDA of gender bias by approving a number of drugs treating erectile dysfunction in men without passing an equivalent for women.But some criticised the campaign as providing cover for a drug with marginal effects.”To approve this drug will set the worst kind of precedent – that companies that spend enough money can force the FDA to approve useless or dangerous drugs,” said, Dr Adriane Fugh-Berman of Georgetown University.If approved, flibanserin will be aimed at pre-menopausal women. The panel suggested several risk management measures, such as requiring physicians to hold a certificate before prescribing the drug.

How Does Viagra Work?

Viagra works by blocking an enzyme that acts as an inhibitor of blood flow. In men, this can cause penile tissue to swell. When a man takes Viagra, there is an increase in blood flow to the genital areas, which thus helps to treat erectile dysfunction or impotence in men.

The same enzyme inhibitor affecting male sexual dysfunction influences pelvic blood flow in women. The Viagra research team attempted to find a link between arousal in women and pelvic blood flow in the early stages of trials.

However, this attempt failed, and some researchers even suggested that genital arousal in women does not necessarily produce sexual desire in women as it typically does in men. Women may define sexual arousal based on mental and emotional, as well as biological factors.

According to some of the researchers working on the Viagra team, Viagra for women or a Viagra alternative may help women facing sexual dysfunction due to side effects of other medication.

In cases where sexual desire is inhibited due to emotional or psychological factors, a female Viagra solution may not be applicable.
