Volunteers needed for UK study on the use of Viagra in women with MS
Researchers at the
National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery, London, UK are currently
recruiting for a double-blind cross-over study into the effects of Viagra
(Sildenafil) in women with multiple sclerosis and related sexual dysfunction.
In a previous study into the use of Viagra in men with MS, conducted at the same hospital, Viagra was found to be of great benefit to MS-related sexual dysfunction.
Sexual dysfunction is a common problem in women with MS. While men with erectile dysfunction can take Viagra, there are currently no medications available for women. The researchers Dr Ranan DasGupta and Dr Clare Fowler are investigating whether Viagra could help women with MS and female sexual dysfunction.
