At present, Addyi is only FDA approved for use in premenopausal women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).
There has been a study called the SNOWDROP trial which assessed the effectiveness of flibanserin (Addyi) in over 900 postmenopausal women with HSDD. The results were positive, with flibanserin (Addyi) demonstrating a significant improvement in sexual desire compared to a placebo.
Doctors may still prescribe a drug for an indication for which it is not approved. This is known as "off-label" drug use. If you are postmenopausal and suffer from hypoactive sexual desire disorder, talk to your doctor about your options.
