Reviews for Addyi

Georgia User · Taken for 1 to 6 months November 17, 2020

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “Started using Addyi 10/12/2020. I'm 45 year old female, 180 lbs ish. I believe I am at the end of pre-menopause, the stretch between cycles has gotten longer. I have completed one full bottle of the medication. I researched and read many reviews so I started with 1/2 a pill for about a week then progressed to a full pill by the weekend so that my spouse was home to watch me. It is a great sleep aid since menopause causes insomnia. I had no severe side effects that many women shared. I am concerned that I may be more emotional now. As far as libido, I have started to be more interested. I have also been using Vit E suppositories (before and during). I hope to come back again to give an additonal update. If it does not work more by end of the 2nd bottle, I will stop.”

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “Such a scam. Only a 'doctor' calling you to push the drugs on you and then leave you 0 contact information. They push you to do 3 months, then require you to redo the process over 3 months and pay again. I have had 0 positive results, only felt worse. They lead you on a merry go round of who to contact. Place the blame on 'your body' or the pharmacy.”

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “I took Addyi a few years ago and had no problems, but it didn't help my sex drive either. Recently I thought I would try it again. The 2 times I took the pill I had severe vomiting the night I took it. I will discontinue. (I had 3 glasses of wine 4 hours before taking it.)”

Frequently asked questions

NLK March 24, 2020

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “Don't get ripped off by this company! I did a paid consult with a dr on 2/18. They found I was eligible and said that it will take 8 weeks to get into my system and that I cannot miss a dose They were offering a free 2 mo trial. I spoke to a rep and they said after the 2 months, it would be $25. On 3/17 I received a text from them at 9am that my new prescription was on its way. By the 3/23 I still didn't receive it and was already out. I called that day and it was NOT sent out and the promotion expired and I would have to charge the $25. That was against what was promised and I would be starting all over again because I would miss doses. I wrote to Sprout Pharma and they responded that everything changed THAT DAY on the 3/17 right after they sent that text, that they didn't talk to my insurance and wasn't even sure what my co-pay would be (although day 1 I was told $25 and yesterday I was also told $25). So basically, the company is a huge rip off.I wished I read reviews before trying.”

In love but not into it · Taken for 1 to 6 months December 27, 2017

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “Did nothing but put me to sleep. Within 30-40 minutes of taking it I was so tired I could not keep my eyes open. There was zero change in my desire. Even with a savings card it was $150 a month so it relieved me of $450 before I gave up on this very expensive sleeping pill.”

Anonymous · Taken for 1 to 6 months October 8, 2017

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “Addyi started to work at about the third week of taking it but that only lasted for about a week. I was told it works like an anti depressant and could take up to six weeks to work. I kept taking it, even though my blood pressure dropped. Half way through the third month of taking it I stopped because it was doing nothing at that point and I didn't want to spend the $150.00 every month. After I stopped taking it I developed cysts in my left breast and had to have them surgically removed. Very disappointed”

GAgirl42 · Taken for 1 to 6 months March 13, 2021

For Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: “This is NOT female Viagra. Trust me. It doesn’t work. Only succeeded in making me tired, almost like taking some NyQuil or 2 Benadryl, which completely defeats the purpose of treating low libido if all you can do is sleep. Stuck with it for 8+ weeks, no change. Save your money.”
