US approves first drug to boost women’s sex drive

first_imgWASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — US regulators approved Tuesday the first drug designed to boost women’s sex drive, a pill that has been nicknamed the “female Viagra” but is known by the trade name Addyi.Also known as flibanserin, the drug is made by Sprout Pharmaceuticals in North Carolina and is aimed at premenopausal women who have lost interest in sex.“Today’s approval provides women distressed by their low sexual desire with an approved treatment option,” said Janet Woodcock, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.The FDA approved Addyi specifically for a condition known as “acquired, generalised hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD),” the agency said in a statement.“Prior to Addyi’s approval, there were no FDA-approved treatments for sexual desire disorders in men or women.”The disorder can develop in women who previously were sexually active, causing distress and relationship problems, “and is not due to a co-existing medical or psychiatric condition, problems within the relationship, or the effects of a medication or other drug substance,” the FDA said.The drug must not be taken with alcohol, and will only be available at certified pharmacies because of the potentially serious interaction with alcohol, including risks such as fainting and severely low blood pressure.“Patients and prescribers should fully understand the risks associated with the use of Addyi before considering treatment,” Woodcock added.

Ferguson denied Ronaldo Man U captaincy — Neville

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Gary Neville claimed Sir Alex Ferguson was reluctant to name Cristiano Ronaldo as captain of Manchester United over fears it would damage the squad’s morale.Neville was appointed United captain when Roy Keane left Old Trafford in November 2005, only to grow disenchanted in the role as a result of injury problems.The former right-back subsequently approached Ferguson and suggested handing over the armband to one of the club’s biggest names, such as Ronaldo.But Neville said the Scot instantly shut down the idea, insisting it could upset the apple cart in the dressing room.“I got injured a year after taking the captaincy and that became really difficult for me,” he told Sky Sports.“It felt as though I wasn’t contributing like a captain should be for my last four years.“I actually went to see Sir Alex in pre-season about the third year I was captain.“We had an amazing team: Ronaldo, [Wayne] Rooney, [Carlos] Tevez, [Ryan] Giggs, [Paul] Scholes, [Michael] Carrick, [Rio] Ferdinand, [Nemanja] Vidic, [Patrice] Evra, [Edwin] van der Sar… there were some great personalities and players in that group.“I went over to Sir Alex walking onto the training pitch and said: ‘I don’t feel worthy of keeping the captaincy anymore. This team is to a level I can’t compete at.’“He said: ‘You’ll keep that f-ing armband, son.’ The reason he gave me: ‘You and Giggs will rotate it. If I give it to Ronaldo, Rooney will kick off. If I give it to Rooney, Ronaldo will kick off. If I give it to Vidic, Ferdinand won’t be happy.’“So literally I think me and Giggsy kept it for three or four years beyond that just purely because of the fact of the camaraderie in the dressing room.“We were the policemen if you like, the older statesmen.“Sir Alex wanted to make sure the team came first.“Even though I felt unworthy as a captain at that stage.”Neville and Giggs led United to two Premier League titles as captains, as well as Champions League and League Cup successes.They also claimed the 2008 Club World Cup having become European champions in the 2007/08 campaign.Tags: CaptaincyCristiano RonaldoManchester UnitedSir Alex Fergusonlast_img read more
