Viagra may now help combat sexual dysfunction in women taking anti-depressants. The new study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Anti-depressants can interfere with sex drive and performance which causes many people to stop taking them.

An eight-week experiment looked at 98 women who were successfully on antidepressants but who were also having sexual side effects.

Seventy-two percent of the women taking Viagra reported improvement on an overall scale, while only 27 percent of the women taking a placebo reported improvement.

Some of the women did however experience headaches, flushing and indigestion.
