HSDD is a condition in which there is a lack or lack of interest or desire for sexual activity, causing significant distress or interfering with human relationships. Women may have been frigid but have acquired frigidity, and it is generally accepted that HSDD develops regardless of partner or situation.

The most common side effects seen with Addyi treatment are dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, fatigue, insomnia and xerostomia. In rare cases, hypotension and fainting were also seen, but these were limited when taking Addyi in the morning or when taking Addyi at the same time as alcohol or other drugs. It is strictly forbidden to take it with alcohol, but in this regard, Sprout plans to take a risk mitigation strategy including approval of prescribers and pharmacists. Sprout will also do more research on ways to mitigate side effects and make Addyi even safer.

Addyi is scheduled to go on sale October 17, 2015, with an exact price undecided, but expected to be comparable to Viagra used for erectile dysfunction. However, while the medicine used for erectile dysfunction is taken from time to time, Addyi needs to be taken every day before going to bed, so I think that it will cost about 400 dollars (about 49,000 yen) monthly. Has been done. It is unclear at this point whether insurance will be applied, but according to Mr. Whitehead, if insurance is applied, it will cost $ 30 to $ 75 a month (about 3700 to 9300 yen).
