An investigational drug for depression failed in clinical trials, but an unintended side effect might translate to marketability of this drug as a libido enhancer for ladies.
Boehringer Ingleheim conducted clinical trials of Flibanserin in North America, and findings indicate that taking 100mg of drug per day over 24 weeks elicited patient reports of significant increase of libido and number of satisfactory sexual encounters.
Recall that Viagra was first tested for hypertension, found wanting, and was then made famous as a “pick me up” for men. The same compound is also used to treat pulmonary hypertension.
Flibanserin is still only an investigational drug. Patience, gurrrls.
