What is Addyi?

You’ve probably heard of the “little blue pill,” but what about the “little pink pill”? Addyi is the only FDA-approved medication for treating hypoactive sexual desire (HSDD) in women and it’s available at Austin Urology Institute. 

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) refers to having little or no interest in sex. Addyi (flibanserin) treats low libido in women who haven’t gone through menopause yet. Often referred to as the “viagra for women,” Addyi doesn’t enhance sexual performance but has been shown in clinical studies to increase desire for sexual activity as well as satisfaction. It can also reduce distress that might be associated with low sexual desire. Patients simply take one nightly pill, and will begin noticing results in as little as four weeks. 

If you’re wondering where to buy or how to get Addyi, you’re in the right place. In order to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for Addyi, we’ll schedule an in-person or video consultation to better understand your symptoms. This will give us the opportunity to understand what’s lowering your sex drive, and determine whether or not additional testing is needed to identify a hormonal imbalance. If we think Addyi is the right treatment for you, then we’ll send in your prescription so you can start seeing results. 

How Much Does Addyi Cost?

There’s no generic formulation of Addyi, so it can be more expensive even with insurance. Fortunately, copay cards and patient assistance programs can help lower the cost. People are often concerned about the costs of medication in the United States, and Addyi is no different. Many of our patients will ask us “How much does Addyi cost?” And the answers can differ. If you use a site like GoodRx, you can get Addyi for $489.13. On their website, however, Addyi states: “Don’t be confused by sites like GoodRx, who continue to post potentially misleading pricing information about the medication. As of publishing this article, Addyi is only $20/mo* with insurance coverage and is covered by most major insurance plans. Without insurance, Addyi is never more than $99/mo* (you can even bundle 3 months for the price of 2).”
