Addyi is the latest limbo stimulant for women. This pill was designed and formulated to aid in sexual dysfunction in women, much like the infamous Viagra for men for sexual dysfunction such as erectile dysfunction. Addyi works on a woman’s brain chemistry to boost her desire for sex, while Viagra for the male works on the mechanics involved in a man achieving an erection. Addyi is packaged in a pink and gray pinstriped bottle of peach colored pills. Addyi is the first medication receiving medical approval for sexual dysfunction in women that have not reached menopause yet.
How Do You Get The Addyi Medication
This is just a pill, with undocumented claims, sitting in the aftermarket pill section of your local drug store or WalMart. This is a medication that can only get obtained with a physician’s prescription. This use of the medication should be preceded by a thorough examination by your physician. Your physician should check your blood pressure, hormonal balance, and the functions of your kidneys and liver, as possible side effects from the medication could affect those functions. The list of possible warnings should be reviewed by your doctor and your pharmacist before starting this medication. Also, use of alcohol when on the medication should be avoided as dizziness and fainting can be some of the side effects. Most physicians will have the patient sign a consent form not to intake alcohol when using Addyi.
Does It Work?
Before the FDA granted approval for use on Addyi, research showed that the drug brought about arousal in women for sex, in their body and in the brain. This is accomplished by the chemical sildenafil, an active ingredient in Addyi. Another chemical is also used in Addyi, bremelanotide is a manmade hormone that triggers the active receptors neurologically in the female.
The jury is still out on how well this Addyi works. That being said, Addyi, does mark the fact this is first prescription approved by the FDA for female sexual dysfunction. Only time, like Viagra for men it’s first years, will show how well it works.
