Sexual Health Q&A

Will Addyi be available outside the United States?

As of August 2015, it is unclear if and when women outside the U.S. will have access to Addyi. On August 21, 2015, The Pharmaceutical Journal reported that Sprout Pharmaceuticals, the drug’s developer, had not yet applied to the European Medicines Agency for permission to market Addyi in Europe. 

Sprout plans to seek approval in Canada later this year, according to an August 20, 2015 report from CTV News.
