Female Viagra“, as a catchy headline grabber has been in the news this week because a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ‘Advisory Committee‘ voted to give the go ahead to a drug called ‘flibanserin‘ made by Sprout Pharmaceuticals.

Well, Sprout Pharmaceuticals Flibanserin is ALL that Viagra is NOT!

So to call it ‘female Viagra’ or ‘Viagra for Women’ is wrong, dead wrong and very misleading.

Here is one quick way to explain it pictorially (using a diagram I created).

See the HUGE difference. Viagra, Sildenafil, is basically a ‘plumbing’ medication. It increases blood flow. Yes, women can take it and it will increase blood flow to the genital area giving women a nice glow and ‘buzz’ down below. But that is IT!

Viagra, Sildenafil, in men or women in NO WAY helps with desire or arousal. IF you think that Viagra is an aphrodisiac you are going to be in for one heck of a disappointment.

Viagra does one and ONLY one thing and it does it WELL. It facilitates increased blood flow (in the pelvic area) which in men will usually result in an erection. While an erection is always a great start a erection alone has NOTHING, but nothing, to do with sexual satisfaction. You need an orgasm for that. Viagra does NOTHING in the orgasm department. If you are a man, Viagra, with luck, will give you a good solid erection BUT with that YOU are on your own. If you cannot have an orgasm Viagra does NOT want to know. That is not its job. Viagra is really like that adage about leading a horse to water.

I talked about THIS, at length, as item #61 in “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia“. Hence my easy familiarity with it. Check it out.

Flibanserin, on the other hand, has nothing to do with increasing blood flow.

It is actually a REPURPOSED antidepressant medication!

It wasn’t as efficacious as they wanted it to be in terms of helping with depression but it seemed to help with increasing sexual desire.

OK, to be fair, there is debate as to how effective it is. That is a different matter. The first thing we have to clear up is that it should not be confused with Viagra. OK?

The ‘Pink Pill’ Flibanserin from Sprout Pharmaceuticals. It is very, very different from Viagra.

** As I said 3 days ago I had no doubts, right from the minute I heard about the torn up doctor’s notes, that he was on antidepressants. To me that explained, right away, one of the reasons why he would continue going to see doctors — when he did NOT like what they were telling him. He had to see doctors to renew his antidepressant prescriptions and he would have done that because many of these medications are addictive and he would not have wanted to go without them.

** Yes, Lufthansa will do its utmost to avoid blame on this, citing every conceivable law. And it is possible that they were well within their rights per the prevailing laws.

** I think there were 3 U.S. citizens on board, so U.S. lawyers will be involved and I already saw one on TV talking about it.

** Of course Lufthansa will not want to contemplate unlimited damages. 

** Yes, it will be years, many, many years before a judgement is reached — and then the fun will begin as to whether Lufthansa will be around to pay up. Sad.

** So this is the ‘delicate’ question that everybody is pussyfooting around (for obvious reasons), was co-pilot Andreas Lubitz on one or more antidepressants — and many (if not most, including Fluoxetine (Prozac), Citalopram (Celexa), Sertraline (Zoloft), Paroxetine (Paxil) and Escitalopram (Lexapro)) are now suspect as causing some degree of suicidal tendencies.

** Much is being made of all the sick notes he had, and that to me is what begs the question. Why would he get sick notes and then not use them? To get the sick notes he would have to see a doctor. RIGHT? Agreed? Why would be voluntarily go to see a doctor, that often, IF he wanted to keep his sickness secret? I will tell you. He needed to get prescription renewals for his medication. Now everything adds up. He probably had to go once a month to get a new prescription. He was given a note each time he went.

** If a doctor was prescribing him antidepressants, of course that doctor is guilty — and guilty as heck. He/she should be arrested forthwith. I do NOT buy for a second that a doctor would not know that Lubitz was a pilot. Come on. He has been a pilot for years.

** You have to be able to test for antidepressants use — with a blood or urine test. This has to become mandatory.

** In my reckoning this is likely to have been the THIRD (3rd) aircraft downing due to a pilot wanting to commit suicide in the last 18 months! Yes, I am including Malaysian Air MH370. I guess most of you never heard of the Moza LAM flight 470 that crashed in Namibia in November 2013. Same scenario, only difference was that in this case it was the co-pilot that left to go to the bathroom.
