New study finds the little blue pill can improve the sex lives of women suffering from depression.


Even though Viagra is not technically for women, 72 percent of depressed women who took it noticed an improvement in their sex lives, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association

But the most effective drugs used to combat sexual dysfunction in men are not approved for use in women.

A whopping 72 percent of women noticed an improvement.
