Note there is some confusion as to the structure of flibanserin, with some sources showing the 4-trifluoromethyl isomer instead of 3-. However the patent literature shows the 3- isomer as the correct one (e.g. see US 7183410) Meodipt (talk) 01:22, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
Effect on women only?
It seems strange that neurotransmitter adjustments would be sex-specific. Do we have any information on why, chemically, this effect is observed only in women? Vectro (talk) 15:17, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
- Considering the gender distinction, if somebody sees a citable note somewhere regarding treatment of intersexed people (who often have physiological libido issues), it would be worth putting an explicit link into the article for people trying to research this to bring to their doctors. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:35, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
Citation #2 - ^ http://www.flibanserininformation.com/flibanserin/ | Retrieved on January 7, 2009 - is not a 'spamlink' but rather a legitimate and factual source of information on this subject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:03, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
- The website contains no information that is not already in the Wikipedia article. It would be hard to describe it as a reliable source. pgr94 (talk) 10:50, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

That website reaffirms and verifies the data found in the Wikipedia article. Age of the source is irrelevant when it has relevant, factual data that can be verified by a myriad of sources. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:18, 8 January 2010
- There is no evidence whatsoever that http://www.flibanserininformation.com is a Reliable Source, therefore it should not be used as a citation. It has no value as an external link because it does not supplement the information in the article. With no use as one or the other, it should not be referenced in the article. If you have any questions about these policies, please post them here. Thanks, Vectro (talk) 19:06, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
