Well it sounds like the female gender could soon be enjoying the benefits of Viagra according to the study, especially when taking anti-depressants.  Viagra blocks an enzyme that inhibits blood flow and thus additional blood flow can travel to other parts of the body.  Back in March there was an article that addressed the concern of the increasing use of anti-depressants as well, so I assume as time moves on there will be more data available as far as whether depression should be treated medically or if further counseling might be an advantage prior to prescribing antidepressants. 

Also, back in March, the study conducted then stated depressed women have more sex, so I ask what might be happy medium here, and it appears that maybe Viagra may offer some answers if a course of action is taken to end depression, otherwise one can perhaps remain depressed and have better sex?

The long search for the female equivalent of Viagra has led researchers to . . . Viagra. In a small study of 98 women published today, the little blue pill helped women whose sexual performance had flagged as a side effect of taking antidepressants, known as SSRIs -- a very specific finding that could open a new use for the male impotence drug.
