RALEIGH, NC -- Remember the little pink pill that went on the market back in October dubbed the "female viagra?" Well, Addyi is supposed to turn ladies on when they're feeling a little off! But after a recent review from Jama Internal Medicine, the little pink pill may be a little pink -- fail!

After studying about 6,000 women, researchers found women who were prescribed the pill had an average of half of one satisfying sex encounter per month.

Ahhh, come on! No one wants half of anything. Okay, maybe half-priced shoes or clothes but not sex!

Researchers also noted alcohol consumption increases Addyi's side effects, which includes dizziness, sleepiness, and nausea. Geesh, sounds like sex with the seven dwarfs!


But some doctors are saying although Addyi doesn't work for everyone, many patients are happy with the drug. One doc in Chicago told CNN that 4 out of 10 women she prescribed the pill to are claiming it increases their sex drive.

Guess it's a hit or miss when it comes to swallowing this pill!
