Fliban is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for acquired, generalized Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) in premenopausal women. A non-hormonal drug that works by increasing certain neurochemicals, noradrenaline and dopamine, which rebalance the imbalance of brain chemicals associated with acquired hypoactive sexual desire disorder or low sexual interest.
Fliban is indicated for premenopausal women with acquired, generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) as characterized by low sexual desire that causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty and is not caused by a coexisting medical or psychiatric condition, problems within the relationship, or the effects of a medication or other drug substance.
Dosed at bedtime because administration during waking hours increases risks of hypotension, syncope, accidental injury, and CNS depression.
Discontinued after 8 weeks if no improvement.
