Is there a certain age group that is best suited for the Pink Pill?

I was wondering if the new Pink Pill is best suited for pre-menopausal or post-menopausal women?

Thank you!

Anon - Thank you for your question. This was interesting to research.
First, there are a number of "fake" websites out there that use the name of the drug to provide information but do not appear to have any relationship to the actual company that makes the drug. Be cautious of these websites!

Second, the manufacturer appears to be marketing the product to adult women of all ages and is not distinguishing the market in terms of being pre- and post- menopausal. The clinical research was conducted with 3,500 women and included 1,591 from the US and 1,998 from Western Europe between the ages of 20-70.

Hope this is helpful!

Hi Anonymous

I am not 100 percent certain, but from what I'm reading, I think flibanserin has been studied in pre-menopausal women. I have not seen anything on post-menopausal studies. But as I said, I'm not positive about that. We have lots of discussion here on the site about this new medication: http://www.empowher.com/pinkpill

I'm sure we will post updates, and if anyone wants to correct me, feel free. Thank you for writing.
