addyi just got fda approval today...
"HOW DOES IT WORK? Addyi, known generically as flibanserin, acts on brain chemicals associated with mood and appetite, similar to antidepressant drugs. In fact, it was originally studied as a treatment for depression before being repurposed into a libido drug. It's not entirely clear why the drug increases sexual desire but researchers point to its ability to increase dopamine — a brain chemical associated with appetite — while lowering serotonin — another chemical linked with feelings of satiation."
its also not safe for post menopausal women (those most likely to need/be interested in it)
saw the report on PBS Newshour tonight. thought i'd pass it along. sounds like just another way to mess with our brains.
