Clinical Question: Does flibanserin improve sexual desire and the number of satisfying sexual episodes for women?

Bottom-line: Flibanserin results in -7 percent improvement in desire and 0.4-1 additional “satisfying” sexual event per month. However^ it is also associated with adverse events like dizziness or somnolence for one in 10-15 women. Concerns regarding hypotension^ syncope^ and interactions with commonly used drugs (particularly alcohol) are worrisome and require further research.
