Addyi will be available in pharmacies on October 17th. The medical staff at Maze is all set to prescribe Addyi. We have passed the required exams and are certified prescribers.
We are looking forward to offering this medication when we feel it is appropriate. It does seem this medication works best for women who had a higher desire in their past that has dwindled over time. It by no means is a magic cure nor does it work like viagra does for men. It is a medication that needs to be taken daily and can take 1-2 months to see a change.
As always, our model of care includes treating both the physical and psychological manifestations of female sexual dysfunction. It has been my experience that most women benefit from addressing both. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us!
