Viagra and Combined Weightloss for Women – Coming Soon

pills

A viagra for women could soon be on the  market.

In a development that sounds too good to be  true, scientists are testing a drug that could boost women’s desire for sex –  and also help them lose weight.

The pill, which is being developed with the  help of the people behind Viagra, could be on bedside cabinets by the end of  next year.

And if that isn’t exciting enough, the tablet  could also help men.

With four in ten women saying that their sex  life has lost its sizzle at some point, and Viagra already making up to  £1.5billion a year, drug companies have long tried to create a female  version.

But the strong psychological base to women’s  libido means they have struggled to find the right product. Mike Wyllie, one of  the team who created Viagra, believes the latest drug being developed by British  firm ORLIBID could succeed where others have failed.

The drug, which acts on the brain to increase  desire, is a synthetic version of melatonin, a hormone usually associated with  tanning.

Melatonin also has a role to play in libido –  and appetite.

Drug companies have long known that melatonin  affects sex drive, but have struggled to find a way to package it in a pill, not  a jab.

The new tablet form is more convenient and  has fewer side-effects.

The pills could cause nausea, and regulators  will have to be satisfied that they are not addictive.

However, it is thought that women could  actually need fewer pills as their treatment progresses.

The company plans to carry out three studies  to measure the effects on women, some in Britain. If they show it to be safe and  effective, the drug could be on sale in the UK by the end of 2015.

Taken 15 minutes before sex, the tablets  could boost libido for more than two hours. Studies of a jab with a similar  formula showed it led to satisfying sex more often. Dr Wyllie, who is advising  ORLIBID but will not make any money from sales, said: ‘It will be for everyone  from those where female sexual dysfunction is destroying their relationships to  those just wanting to spice up their sex life.’

It is hoped that at the right dose the drug,  which has the working name ORL101, will restore a flagging libido to normal  levels without ‘supercharging’ it.

And while the pills are designed to increase  sexual desire, they may also curb appetite.

Pricing has yet to be decided but ORL101 is  likely to cost a similar amount to Viagra, which sold for up to £12 a tablet  when launched.

This means that it is unlikely to be widely  prescribed by a health service still struggling to find cash for the treatment  of some life-threatening illnesses.

ORLIBID will also investigate whether the  drug, which acts on the brain, can help impotent men for whom existing drugs,  which  target the body, do not work.

Paula Hall, a sex therapist with Relate, said  that while women would buy a ‘pink’ Viagra, it will not fix a low libido caused  by stress, anxiety or relationship problems.

Dr John Dean, a past president of the  International Society for Sexual Medicine, said a drug may help when no medical  or psychological cause of problems can be found.

He added: ‘Low sexual desire is by no means a  trivial problem. It affects lives, relationships, productivity and  satisfaction.’

    Instead of this :

    Be cool with your partner
    Talk to her
    Go to a good restaurant
    Go to the beach
    Take a sunbath naked with her
    Be imaginative

    It will be better than taking these pills…
