Anthem To Cover Libido Drug So Women Can Get Their Sex On
Big Pharma wins again with yet another recreational drug that has zero health benefits. There's a new pink pill to treat women who claim their libido is too low not unlike the companion drugs offered to men to treat erectile dysfunction. Without insurance, a patient would have to shell out $400 a month to pay for the drug, Addyi. No worries though. Anthem, an insurance company I left because I could no longer afford the outrageous premiums, will cover the new drug. About 70% of insurance plans cover similar drugs like Ciallis and Viagra for men, which I think is equally appalling. Most people who truly have problems down there is because of some other drug Big Pharma has convinced them they need for healthy living, which is not the case about 90% of the time. The maker of Addyi says there are no side effects unless you're under the influence of alcohol, in which case the drug can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure or fainting. Then people wonder why the cost of obtaining affordable health insurance in this country is so elusive.
