I’m stunned by the extremes to which a pharmaceutical company will go when attempting to get FDA approval for some new drug. Take a look at the latest offering from privately-held Sprout Pharmaceuticals, who claim they now have a “female Viagra.” Yes, really. It is called Addyi. This drug is potentially dangerous, with some frightening side effects. They include an increased risk of syncope—temporary loss of consciousness—as well as severe low blood sugar, insomnia, dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness, sedation, and anxiety. Manufacturers warn if you decide to use it, not to drink alcohol. I wouldn’t touch Addyi with a ten foot pole. Addyi is actually Flibanserin—a failed antidepressant. Unlike Viagra, which is designed to bring more blood flow to male genitals if a man chooses to use it temporarily, Addyi is supposed to be used every day—long-term by women. It claims to enhance a woman’s sexual impulses by targeting, not your genitals but your brain. Flibanserin is similar to other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac. Ironically these drugs are notorious not for increasing libido, but for blunting it. Some time ago, Big Pharma invented a whole new “illness” known as Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, defined as “persistently or recurrently deficient (or absent) sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity.” Addyi is supposed to treat this. Originally developed by family-owned Boehringer Ingelheim in Germany Flibanserin, after lengthy trails was judged to be ineffective as an antidepressant. Boehringer had submitted this drug to the FDA for approval in 2011. It was refused. Out of 1300 women who took part in trials, 15% dropped out due to unpleasant side effects. The FDA rejected the appeal, saying that whatever the drugs drug’s minor benefits might be they could not justify its nasty side effects. So Boehringer sold their invention to Sprout Pharmaceuticals in 2011. Who tried their luck with the FDA in 2013 and also got nowhere. However, Sprout’s persistence, massive lobbying and and financial investments amassed more than 60,000 supporting signatures so finally won FDA’s approval for the drug in August of 2015. This FDA approval stands next to many other applications which have won FDA approval in the past, showing that, when companies spend enough money, they can, in effect, force the FDA to approve many useless or dangerous drugs. Adriane Fugh-Berman MD, Pharmacology Professor at Georgetown University, describes Addyi as "a mediocre aphrodisiac with scary side-effects.” She adds, “The only thing that’s different is a clever, aggressive public relations campaign that Sprout Pharmaceuticals waged successfully.” Meanwhile, the outspoken Dr Mark Sircus makes his own assessment of the situation, which is well worth listening to. Sircus says, “Most doctors and medical associations just do not get that women are different from men sexually. They do not have genitals that function independent of their hearts and minds. The feminine principle is pretty much dead in modern civilization and especially at the FDA, which runs like the SS, a medical Gestapo. The FDA again proves what type of organization it is exposing women in America to the dangers and horrors of pharmaceutical drugs. They are the most unnatural organization in the world poisoning people instead of helping.” Need I say more? If you want to learn about safe natural aphrodisiacs that not only work but are a delight to use, I’ll be covering some of my favorites on our next two videocasts. Look forward to seeing you then.

Update May work by restoring prefrontal cortex control over the brain's motivation/rewards structures enabling sexual desire to manifest; this may occur by increasing dopamine and norepinephrine while transiently decreasing serotonin in the brain's prefrontal cortex, which may be accomplished by reduced glutamate transmission.

WASHINGTON, DC — The first prescription pill to treat low sexual desire in women was finally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday. The little pink pill will be sold under the brand name Addyi and manufactured by Sprout Pharmaceuticals, a privately held company. It will only be available through certified and specially trained healthcare professionals and pharmacies due to its potentially dangerous side effects. Addyi, whose generic name is flibanserin, is designed to help women get their groove back. The pill is designed for premenopausal women who suffer from hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). The FDA rejected flibanserin twice in the past, but finally caved after a heavy lobbying campaign by Sprout and women's groups. Women who took Addyi in a clinical study had an increase of about one orgasm a month, so that means a whopping 12 extra orgasms a year. Only problem is you need to take Addyi every day. Addyi can cause low blood pressure, fainting, nausea, dizziness, sleepiness and shouldn't be taken with booze, but otherwise it's completely safe. ------------------------------------------------------------- Daily videos brought to you by THE Taiwanese Animators behind the infamous Tiger Woods animation.

It's not at all like male viagra... Now that 'female viagra' or Addyi, is available by prescription, we imagined what it might be like for doctors around the world.... Patient : Oh, yes – I would like female Viagra please. Doctor: Err, do you mean Addyi? – it’s generic name is flibanserin Patient: Uhm – I mean like – the magic sex drug. I saw that theres this pill -- like male viagra -- and you can have amazing sex on it, so if boys can have it, girls should be able to have it too, so i want it. I mean, more is more right? Doctor: Well, Hmm. See, male Viagra – what you are referring to – is actually very different. It sends blood to the male genitals – and uhh, this is actually totally different to the female version – which works on your brain chemistry to increase labido. So, it’s really not like Viagra at all. Patient: But it’s a sex drug, right? Can you – write me a prescription. Doctor See, Flibanserin, the generic name – is actually for people with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). You don’t just pop it, if you want to have more sex. It’s a treatment for a condition. Patient : So, what are the symptoms of that – condition. Doctor : Uhh – low libido – Patient : Low libido! that’s totally me. Doctor : Really? Because, that’s not what you said originally. I think you said “more is more”. Patient : Oh, I was talking about eyebrows.But in terms of low libido – that’s totally me. Doctor : Can you tell me a little bit about that? Patient : Well, yeah sure. Well like the other night I was drunk at TAO, and this hot guy came up to me – and he had those abdomen muscles like Brad Pitt in fight club – and then we caught an uber back to his place in Flatbush – and it was like, I mean – let’s just say I felt sorry for the driver – but anyway – when I woke up the next day – I still had my skiiny jeans on. Doctor : Umm. Okay. This is mainly meant to help people with issues in intimate relationships. Patient : And the other day – the delivery guy from los tacos, we’re like – pretty close, if you know what I mean – like, Domingo is really special to me, I mean I see him basically everytime I order tacos – and the other night – he asked me if I wanted anything else – and like – “I was like, you know what – I just wanted to eat my quesadilla and watch Orange is the New Black.” Doctor : Okay, well. Let’s do a medical check, and see that this is right for you. Are you currently on any other medication? Patient : Just the pill. – For my T-zone. Doctor : Are you allergic to any medications? Patient : Umm. Not really. I did feel nautious last time I took Plan B. But that was like – in summer-ish. Doctor : How many sexual partners do you have? Patient : Pass. Doctor : Are you currently pregnant? Patient : I hope not! I’m pretty sure – no? Wait. When was the Marquee opening? How definitive of an answer do you need for that? Doctor : Umm – when was the first day of your last period? Patient :Oh – I have my diary – I can work this out...Monday! Doctor : So you’re on your period now? Patient :Yes! So I’m defiantly not pregnant. Doctor : Okay – so – just – take this to the pharmacy. Now, you can’t consume alcohol while you are on these. Patient :Ugh, god – it’s like being on antibiotics. Doctor : Well yes – it kind of is, because it’s prescription medication. Patient : Oh. I’ll save it for special occasions. Like champagne! But not. Doctor : You actually have to take this medication every day. Patient : Oh. What happens if you don’t? Doctor : It won’t be effective. Patient : What happens if I accidentally – like say, if someone spiked my drink – with vodka. Doctor: You’ll suffer negative side effects. Dizziness, nausea… Patient : Any hallucinating? Doctor : Not typically, no. Patient : Oh. Well, this should be good anyway. Thanks so much doctor. Doctor : Is there anything else I can help you with today? Patient : No thanks. Oh; you guys don’t do medical marujana here do you? This video is presented by Jayde Lovell, produced and edited by Solvi Haugseth, at Youtube Space NYC.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a libido-enhancing drug for women that has been dubbed "female Viagra". Flibanserin, a drug produced by Sprout Pharmaceuticals, recently passed an FDA advisory committee meeting. The pill is designed to assist premenopausal women regain their sex drive by boosting levels of certain brain chemicals, but critics say it has limited effects. Elaine Jung reports.

http://www.dailyrxnews.com/flibanserin-recommended-approval-fda-advisory-panel An advisory panel for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted to recommend approval of a drug to treat lack of sexual desire in women by an 18-6 margin last week. The move doesn't constitute official approval by the FDA, which is expected to make a final decision on the approval of flibanserin by an Aug. 18 deadline. The vote instead serves as a recommendation, and the agency tends to follow the panel's lead, according to The Washington Post. Outside of the advisory panel, public support for the drug — which has been compared to Viagra, which treats erectile dysfunction in men — has been generally positive and has even included backing from several women's groups. As committee member and Rutgers University drug safety expert Dr. Tobias Gerhard put it to The New York Times, "The unmet need seems to be so strong that even for a drug with rather modest benefit, I think approving the product with strong limitations seems to be the right step at this point." Those limitations may include a requirement that doctors warn patients of potential side effects like low blood pressure, fainting, nausea and dizziness. There's also a possibility that doctors might have to become certified to prescribe flibanserin.

Tagalog/Eng/Nat Viagra, the headline grabbing anti-impotency pill, is now on sale in the Philippines. Pfizer, who manufacture the drug, have started delivering to local drugstores in Manila, two weeks after the local Bureau of Food and Drug gave its approval for its sale in the country. Pharmacies in the Philippines have finally begun to receive their stocks of Viagra. The manufacturer Pfizer, started deliveries of the new wonder drug at drugstores in Manila this week. Some stores already began selling the drug on Tuesday. With Viagra becoming the talk of the town, drugstore owners are anticipating a huge demand. Pharmacy owner Bhoyette Vizconde sold five tablets on the first day. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I already hoard (laughs) stocks because I'm really expecting that being the first to have Viagra here in our vicinity, I'm sure a lot of people will come here and inquire or buy Viagra." SUPER CAPTION: Bhoyette Vizconde, Owner of Marcelo's Pharmacy Pharmacy Plus received its first supply early this week. Owner James Sandoval, who owns several stores in the capital, put a few boxes of the pill on the shelf to show clients that the drug is now available. But before the drug was put on sale in his stores, Sandoval issued a memo to all his store managers to ensure that safety precautions are practiced before the drug is dispensed to patients. The B-F-A-D says it is important the pill is only sold to patients who come with a legitimate prescription from their doctors. Each pill comes with a leaflet giving warnings of possible side-effects if the drug is not taken properly. Pfizer warned that the drug should not be taken by people being treated with nitrate-based medication for heart problems. While he expects a huge demand for the drug, Sandoval said Filipino men may be a little shy of asking for the drug themselves. He says the men here will probably not want to admit they need Viagra and so he is arranging a home delivery service to put them out of their misery. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Because maybe at the secrecy of their own home, they can acquire the product because they might be too embarrassed to come forward to admit that they have a sexual problem. Any person that comes forward asking about the product - they're so defensive, they say right away "Hey listen I don't have a problem with this. I'm just inquiring". That goes to tell you how sensitive the issue is." SUPER CAPTION: James Sandoval, Owner of A-B Sandoval Drugstore Dr. Jesus Mendoza is a local doctor who has been checking out the testing of the Viagra drug. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well, I was pretty excited and wanted to find out whether it was really going to work. Of course, there was some degree of skepticism at first. But when we started seeing back the patients who were on the study, then it was confirmed that my gosh, this works." SUPER CAPTION: Dr. Jesus Mendoza, Urologist In a press conference early this month, Pfizer said the approval from B-F-A-D came after they completed a six-month study of its effects on 500 men from six Asian countries, including the Philippines. The man who discovered Viagra, Dr. Peter Ellis, was in Manila last week and spoke of how his drug differs from the others already available in the market. SOUNDBITE: (English) "And I think the beauty of the drug is that it works to enhance the natural process. All the other products that are out there, you take the product, you get an erection. But Viagra, you take the product, you don't get an erection but it's only when sexually aroused. So it's basically enhancing a perfectly natural function and restoring it back to normal."

YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first prescription drug designed to boost sexual desire in women, a milestone long sought by a pharmaceutical industry eager to replicate the blockbuster success of impotence drugs for men. But stringent safety measures on the daily pill called Addyi mean it will probably never achieve the sales of Viagra, which has generated billions of dollars since the late 1990s. The drug's label will bear a boxed warning - the most serious type - alerting doctors and patients to the risks of dangerously low blood pressure and fainting, especially when the pill is combined with alcohol. The same problems can occur when taking the drug with other commonly prescribed medications, including antifungals used to treat yeast infections. "Patients and prescribers should fully understand the risks associated with the use of Addyi before considering treatment," said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's drug center, in a statement announcing the approval Tuesday. Under an FDA-imposed safety plan, doctors will only be able to prescribe Addyi after completing an online certification process that requires counseling patients about Addyi's risks. Pharmacists will also need certification and will be required to remind patients not to drink alcohol while taking the drug. Opponents of the drug say it's not worth the side effects, which also include nausea, drowsiness and dizziness. They point out that the FDA rejected the drug twice, in 2010 and 2013, due to these risks. "This is not a drug you take an hour before you have sex. You have to take it for weeks and months in order to see any benefit at all," said Leonore Tiefer, a psychologist and sex therapist who organized a petition last month calling on the FDA to reject the drug. Patients should stop taking the drug after eight weeks if they do not see any improvement, notes the FDA release. Sprout Pharmaceutical's drug is intended to treat women who report emotional stress due to a lack of libido. Its approval marks a turnaround for the FDA, which previously rejected the drug twice due to lackluster effectiveness and side effects. The decision represents a compromise of sorts between two camps that have publicly feuded over the drug for years. On one side, Sprout and its supporters have argued that women desperately need FDA-approved medicines to treat sexual problems. On the other side, safety advocates and pharmaceutical critics warn that Addyi is a problem-prone drug for a questionable medical condition. Beginning with the drug's launch in mid-October, doctors who see patients complaining about a loss of sexual appetite will have a new option. "Women are grasping, and I feel like we need to offer them something that acknowledges that, and that we can feel safe and comfortable with," said Dr. Cheryl Iglesia, a surgeon and official with the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Iglesia said she has occasionally resorted to prescribing testosterone creams to boost women's libido, a use not approved by the FDA. The search for a pill to treat women's sexual difficulties has been something of a holy grail for the pharmaceutical industry. It was pursued and later abandoned by Pfizer, Bayer and Procter Gamble, among others. But drugs that act on blood flow, hormones and other biological functions all proved ineffective. Addyi, known generically as flibanserin, is the first drug that acts on brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite. Women and their doctors will have to decide whether the drug's modest benefits warrant taking a psychiatric pill on a daily basis. Company trials showed women taking the drug generally reported one extra "sexually satisfying event" per month, and scored higher on questionnaires measuring desire. Tiefer and other critics said the FDA was pressured into approving the drug by a feminist-themed lobbying campaign funded by Sprout and other drugmakers. "It's just a mishmash of politics and science and sex and money," Tiefer said. The lobbying group, dubbed Even the Score, began publicizing the lack of drugs for female sexual dysfunction as a women's rights issue last year. "Women deserve equal treatment when it comes to sex," the group states in an online petition to the FDA, which attracted more than 60,000 supporters. Women's groups, including the National Organization for Women, signed on to the effort, though it was funded by Sprout and other companies working on female sex drugs. At an FDA meeting in June, more than 30 members of the public called for the drug's approval, frequently citing the Even the Score campaign. They vastly outnumbered speakers who spoke in opposition to the drug. At the meeting's conclusion, the panel of FDA advisers voted 18-6 to recommend approving the drug, with safety restrictions. Sprout declined to comment on how much it spent on the campaign. For now, execu

A US government panel has urged regulators to approve a drug to treat low sexual desire in women, nicknamed the "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". http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-33020349#sa-ns_mchannel=rss&ns_source=PublicRSS20-sa http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. WASHINGTON (CBS NEWS) -- Most women with low sexual desire won't rush to get the first prescription drug to boost female libido when it becomes available on Saturday. But they may have more options down the road. Addyi is a daily medication that can't be taken with alcohol or certain other drugs, which will likely limit its use. But experts believe those restrictions could spur development of better treatments for women's sexual problems after more than a decade of neglect by most of the world's large drugmakers. Kim Wallen, a psychology professor at Emory University, says Addyi represents a historic milestone that may open the door to more drugs targeting desire in men and women. Where Viagra and other men's erectile dysfunction drugs work by increasing blood flow to the genitals, Addyi acts on brain chemicals associated with desire. "This is the first time that a drug, for either men or women, has been approved strictly to increase sexual desire," Wallen says. "That legitimizes many other drugs that are in development." Treatments for women's libido issues are an untapped financial opportunity for drugmakers. Analysts estimate the market could be worth over billion, based on academic estimates that between 5 million and 9 million U.S. women may suffer from desire disorders. But the area hasn't been a research priority for drugmakers in many years. Beginning in the 1990s, Pfizer, Bayer and Procter Gamble all studied - then discarded - drugs targeting female libido. Addyi itself was developed by the German conglomerate, Boehringer Ingelheim, then sold to Sprout Pharmaceuticals after the Food and Drug Administration rejected the medication due to lackluster effectiveness and issues like nausea, fatigue and dizziness. It took Sprout four years to win FDA approval for Addyi, which was finally granted in August, on the third try. "They really struggled with this, even agonized over the decision," said CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook. "Because they said the benefits were kind of modest and there were some significant side effects they were worried about: dizziness, sleepiness, and when used with alcohol, fainting." The drug, which acts on brain chemicals associated with mood and appetite, will come with a bold warning label about the risks of fainting if combined with alcohol or certain medications. Additionally, doctors and pharmacists must complete an online certification process to show they understand the drug's risks. Dr. Lisa Dabney says several patients have asked her about Addyi, but they generally lose interest after she explains they cannot drink alcohol while taking the daily medication. "It's definitely an option that's going to help patients," says Dabney, of New York's Mt. Sinai hospital. "But it's going to have a limited patient audience because of the alcohol restrictions and the fact that you have to take it every day." Still, some women credit the drug with saving their relationships. Amanda Parrish, 52, had been married for three years when she realized she was avoiding sex with her husband. Her doctor said it was natural to lose sexual interest with age and suggested she try a vibrator. But nothing worked until Parrish enrolled in a trial of Addyi, which was studied in women who report distress due to a lack of libido. "It just brought me back to where I was as far as being flirty and playful," says Parrish, who lives in Nashville. "I went back to the days of leaving notes on his window, in his car, on his mirror in the morning." Sheri Mike, a 34-year-old mother of two, told CBS News she hopes it will make a difference for her. "I've tried vitamins, me and my husband have tried counseling, I've tried hypnotherapy, but none of those have worked," she said."The lack of desire, the lack of sexual thoughts, no libido -- it's just this one area that's kind of holding us back from being truly happy." Experts generally describe Addyi's effect as "modest." In company studies, women taking the drug that's also called flibanserin reported a slight uptick in sexually satisfying events each month. Their answers to separate questionnaires indicated they experienced a slight increase in desire and a slight decrease in stress. Analysts from Evercore ISI estimate Addyi could generate sales of 00 million annually. That's far below the blockbuster numbers once discussed by experts and the billion that Valeant Pharmaceuticals recently agreed to purchase Sprout. But the buyout has revived interest in a handful of competitors developing alternate treatments. Those products include nasal sprays, injections and antidepressant pills. It could be years before any of them reach patients. That's because the field of women's sexual medicine remains a small one, comprised of tiny companies with limited resources. Leading the field is Cranbury, N.J.-based Palatin Technologies Inc. which is studying an injectable
