'Viagra for Women' Shows Promise

Erika Schwartz, M.D By Friday, 31 October 2014 04:45 PM Current | Bio | Archive

In what researchers are describing as a kind of “Viagra for women,” Case Western Reserve University scientists have identified an experimental drug that increases libido and sexual satisfaction in postmenopausal women.
 
The drug — known as melanocortin-receptor-4- agonist bremelanotide — was found to reduce sex-related distress and increase sex drive and satisfying sexual experiences of women treated with it.
 
The study, recently presented at a meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in Chicago, involved several hundred women treated with various doses of the drug over 12 weeks, and nearly 100 women who received a placebo.
 
The results showed women taking the highest doses of the drug reported the highest levels of satisfaction and the lowest levels of sexual dysfunction, when compared with those taking lower doses or the placebo.
 
Researchers are awaiting approval from the Food and Drug Administration to do further testing.
