Frankfurt – German drugmaker Boehringer Ingelheim has decided to stop efforts to develop a drug referred to as “pink Viagra.” As reported by Reuters, the manufacturer pulled the plug on the experimental drug, which would have been called Girosa, after regulators in the U.S. found the pill to pose health risks to women, and not offer significant benefits for improving their sex rive.

Chief executive Andreas Barner is quoted in the report as stating of the company’s decision, “The decision was not made lightly, considering the advanced stage of development.”

Barner is further quoted as stating, “The response of the authorities and the complexity and extent of further questions that would need to be addressed to potentially obtain registration for flibanserin have impacted the company's decision to focus on other pipeline projects.”
