Lately, Addyi has been taking strides to position itself as a sensational new alternative to Lady Era and effectively lay claim to the hailed title, "female Viagra".
You might be wondering why a medication like Addyi is even referred to as "female Viagra", but some people do believe that's this is because Viagra has arguably set the global benchmark for a consistently potent and compelling product [insert exclamation point].
It may be true that Viagra doesn't work for everyone, but Addyi aims to fill that gap with a solution for women. Even though Addyi is often compared to Viagra, they contain two completely different active ingredients and work in the body differently.
Addyi contains the active ingredient Flibanserin and is designed to increase or restore a woman's libido through treating neurotransmitter imbalances. This medicine reportedly works by increasing dopamine and norepinephrine levels within the brain while simultaneously decreasing serotonin... Not to mention, the functional roles of dopamine and norepinephrine are essential components of a healthy neurological ecosystem.
Viagra, by comparison, contains the active ingredient Sildenafil, which works by increasing blood flow to the genitals.
While Viagra may be time-tested and proven, Flibanserin's mechanism of action is intriguing because it operates at the cerebral level.
Possible CONS of Flibanserin:
[a] Unlike Viagra, which is taken immediately before an encounter, Flibanserin is supposed to be taken daily (before bedtime), which may be an inconvenient way of dosing for some individuals.
[b] Flibanserin reportedly has serious interactions with alcohol - However, if you don't drink then this isn't even a concern.
[c] Known side effects include: nausea, low blood pressure, fainting, dizziness, sleepiness
[a] In clinical trials testing its effectiveness, Flibanserin has reportedly failed or barely passed, whereas only about 10-12% of women in trials benefited from taking it. However, I say "to each their own", as we're all subject to react or respond differently for any number of reasons.

What are your thoughts on Addyi's role as the female Viagra?
Could sexual dysfunction be more attributed to psychology rather than our physiology?
Are more women benefiting from having Addyi as a viable option?
