Now, that’s interesting

As some of you may know, I work two days a week in the pharmacy. I really enjoy it; the counting and attention to detail really appeal to my innate desire to be regimentally organized (yes, you may certainly read that as an anal retentive tendency, it won’t offend me at all). I have to say, though, that in 10 months time, I have never filled a prescription for Viagra for a woman. Not ever. I have, however, filled a goodly number of antidepressants, and have even considered them for myself. (I decided against it for reasons of my own, but I did consider it.) Which brings me to the subject line of “Now, that’s interesting.”

According to this Web MD study,

”Seventy-two percent of the women on Viagra vs. 27% of the women on placebo got to ‘much improved’ or ‘very much improved’ on a scale [of sexual functioning],” says Harry A. Croft, MD, medical director of the San Antonio Psychiatric Research Center in Texas and a co-author on the study.

Now, I had no idea antidepressants did that, especially since I know that depression also lowers libido. OTOH, since I’m ….um….not exactly married anymore, perhaps antidepressants might be an option for me after all. But without the side order of Viagra!

In crafty news, I finished a hat for Diva, since she asked for one. I gave it to her before I took a picture, and well, who knows where it is now. Basic black cotton-ease, go ahead and visualize it for youself.

In non-crafty news, I have a lot of blogging to do, good stuff on books and products and such and such and such. I’ll try not to flood your feed reader too much, but I do have about a six month backlog of stuff to talk about. Which, amazingly enough, roughly corresponds to my extended period of silence. Welcome back into my world, dear friends.
