Because Women Need Lovin' Too

Listen up, ladies! If you are currently taking antidepressants and experiencing sexual dysfunction, a new study may have the answer to your problem. And, it may have been right under your nose in the medicine cabinet of your male counterpart all along. Yes, Viagra®, the savior drug for men, may also be beneficial for women.

According to CBS Evening News medical correspondent, Dr. Jonathan LaPook, sexual dysfunction affects about half of patients on antidepressants (women more than men). A small study on premenopausal women found Viagra helped to achieve the big "O". However, according to the research report published recently in the Journal of the American Medical Association, it did not improve other sex aspects for women, such as desire or arousal.

Although the study shows promise as a treatment for female sexual dysfunction, Pfizer Inc. (the company that manufactures the little blue pill) currently has no plans to pursue FDA approval of Viagra® use for women. The results of the company's own research proved the drug to be safe but inconclusive in treating women, leading to the study's end in 2004.

When is it going to be the women's turn? Sexual dysfunction treatments for men have exploded onto the pharmaceutical market in recent years. The search for a helper for women leads little to be desired. If Viagra® has the potential of helping depressed women achieve an orgasm, it should be explored further. Depression alone is a serious medical condition. When the treatment for depression is coupled with sexual dysfunction, the situation often worsens. Everyone deserves to be happy and sexually satisfied in life and should not settle for anything less...men and women.

Most of the ED drugs carry labels asking women to stay away from the ED drugs. all the ED drugs including viagra are not meant for the women. however, clinical trials are being carried out in order to ascertain whether ED drugs like viagra can yield positive results in the sexual life of women or even otherwise. The women who have participated in the clinical trials have reported positive effects on their sexual lives after the consumption of viagra. However, viagra has still not been declared to be safe for consumption for women. Till now only trials are being conducted. http://www.viagracare.com
