A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Addyi is a prescription libido enhancement medication used to restore sex drive for premenopausal women. This medication is an effective low libido treatment for HSDD - hypoactive sexual desire disorder. This is when a woman is increasingly less interested in sex despite an otherwise healthy relationship with her partner, and it is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain. Women should retain a healthy sex drive before they enter their menopause years, and Addyi works well to increase sexual desire for women. This medication can be very beneficial for those who have lost interest in sex.
The standard dosage for this medication is to take 1 Addyi 100mg tablet each day at bedtime, but always take your medication exactly as specified in your prescription.
The active ingredient in Addyi is Flibanserin.
Tell your doctor if you have any history of low blood pressure or liver problems before starting on this medication.
Do not take Addyi if you have had more than 3 standard-size alcoholic drinks during the day leading up to the time you usually take your medication.
Wait at least 1-2 hours before taking Addyi if you have had 1-2 standard-size alcoholic drinks.
Addyi should only be used during pregnancy or when you are breastfeeding if your doctor approves it.
Addyi side effects are uncommon, but some users may experience dizziness, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, nausea, dry mouth, or tiredness. If side effects are seen you may want to discontinue use and speak to your doctor again regarding low libido for women treatment options.
