    I never knew that was a common problem. Guess it's because I'm not around women that discuss those sort of things. 9 million women? Wow.

    If that pill gets approved we won't have to worry about the oil spill. Between that and ED pills everyone will just fuck each other to death....

    on the one hand, it would be great to help women with genuine sexual problems.

    on the other hand, there's bound to be side effects, and there'll be an attitude from a lot of men that a woman must need 'fixing' if she isn't into sex or stops wanting sex with him.

    would i take it? no. i don't have much of a sex drive but i don't see it as something that needs to be fixed. i see it as part of my personality as a whole...and if a guy doesn't want to live with my personality as a whole, he should just leave.

    Anti depressants can cause loss of libido and so if the pill in the OP was safe to take alongside it chances are it could prove popular.

    Not only would I support a pill that actually worked, but I'd buy stock in the company...simply because of how much I'd be buying for my wife! But the FDA does seem to have serious and well-founded objections about both the efficacy and safety of this drug. And, as anyone who has had a bad reaction to seratonin re-uptake inhibitor drugs will testify, there can be severe side effects when attempting to modify the body's reaction to this neurotransmitter.

    I'm really sceptic about it. Not only from a pharmaceutical or physiological point.
    Sildenafil (Viagra) has a perfectly explainable physiological mechanism; more blood can flow into the penis and a better erection is the result. The pill for women however, would work on the brain. It's been initially tested as an anti-depressant. (Which is, in my opinion, a class more dangerous then most drugs that have an effect when entering the bloodflow.) Medication that influence the brain are NOT a joke. So few people realise this. A lot of those drugs resemble each other because a lot of neurotransmitters resemble each other, and this causes a lot of side-effects. In case of depressed people that need help and suffer a messed up neurotransmitter system in their brain, yes, that may be the only way to help. But giving those drugs to a perfectly healthy woman?

    Also, there's a big psychological issue to it. A lot of women are in stressful situations which lowers their sex drive greatly. In stead of helping relieve that stress, by working on the relationship, helping out with the kids or household, and appreciating what she does, a man would be able to just give her a pill and expect her to want to have sex. If the women wouldn't want that, it would obviously be her fault if the relationship fails. It would be to some extent, emotionally forcing her to have sex...

    the first half of your post was great but the second half of your post kind of reads a lot like a nicely worded assult on womens mental toughness....honestly emotionally forcing her to have sex..how by making her horny? When men are having problems with Erections no one tells the women to try to work on it with him, they just give the guy Viagra...
    And how by the way did you decide that if a woman dosn't want to have sex the reason must be along the lines of the man not helping her with the kids or appreciating her? I'm sorry but the second half of your post is pretty whiney and assumes a lot of facts not in evidence to be honest

    I think a lot of women would be really happy to have access to those pills.

    :smile: You're right, reread it again and it does come off too strong. I really meant this situation as an example rather than a generalisation. Obviously, not all women who suffer stress suffer a lower sex drive also. And how a couple deals with that would be entirely up to themselves and depends on how well they communicate together. I did say "to some extent" :)

    Usually when a couple goes to the doctor with an ED problem, a doctor should always advice not-farmacological solutions to the problem first. And those have a great deal to do with psychologically approaching the situation. Fact is that a lot of couples just ask for it, and doctors will prescribe. Most pharmacies have great brochures about how to deal with it as a couple, too. Well at least in Belgium :rolleyes:
    Fact is, whilst ED is a perfectly clear "dysfunction", the line isn't always as easy to draw concerning women. A lot of doctors blame the pharmaceutical industry of creating a ("hypoactive sexual desire disorder" (HSDD)) hype. Something they did before, and appear to be quite successful at too.
    It's good that the FDA will refuse it. I just worry that with enough lobbying and a big public push towards the allowance of the pills, they would be allowed on the markets without proof of efficacy and lack of serious research of the adverse (or longterm adverse) effects.

    Sometimes there is no Pill to help a relationship that sucks and therefor results in a woman having no sexual desire for the man.

    The drive usually goes way deeper than the surface desire for sex. If a woman has no sex drive ever or way too high of a sex drive where she is never satisfied, there can be psychological or physiological reasons for it. Not an easy fix.

    I dunno...pills these days are a mofo. I was on anti-depressants and they made life a little easier. They also totally erased any thoughts of sex from my mind. It took me about 6 weeks to realize it. :frown1:

    I've been on effexor for years, never affected my sex drive. But i'm one of the lucky ones. My husband was on Wellbutrin and it never affected him either way. When i first took Wellbutrin i was super horny. I hear that is one that has less sexual side effects, but when i tried to take it a 2nd time in my life it made me crazy.

    I am currently weaning myself down on Effexor to eventually not have to take it at all. Just too expensive with the other meds i have to take daily.

    I'm not sure. I guess if I needed it I would. Hopefully I never will!

    Guys are pretty simple and can be fixed with a single blue pill. A women is a much more complicated creature, good luck finding one pill that fixes everything... :smile:

    Well to break down how that really works is: Guys who have really high blood pressure can have impotence, Viagra is really a vasodiolator that lowers the blood pressure so one can have an erection.

    Regular blood pressure medications can also solve this problem, it can even help with the sudden inability to orgasm in women, if it is due to blood pressure.

    A pill to give someone a sex drive is an entirely different issue for men or women. Even guys who can't get an erection still have a sex drive. A woman who has no sex drive can be for multiple other reasons that can't be solved with a pill.

    So if someone has emotional issues or relationship issues that a pill can't fix that because it is all relative.
