|- Public Title||@home: a study to investigate the subjective and physiological efficacy and safety of Lybrido and Lybridos in the domestic setting in healthy female subjects with Female Sexual Dysfunction and SSRI usage.|
|- Scientific Title||Lybrido(s) and SSRIs @Home:
A double blind, randomized, cross-over placebo controlled study to investigate the subjective and physiological efficacy and safety of Lybrido and Lybridos in the domestic setting in healthy female subjects with Female Sexual Dysfunction in combination with SSRI use.
|- hypothesis||In the present study we will investigate the efficacy of Lybrido and Lybridos in one group of subjects with FSD using SSRIs in the laboratory and in the domestic setting of these subjects. We will measure subjective, physiological and neuropsychological measures of sexual functioning, in the Emotional Brain laboratory and in the homes of the subjects, which enables us to compare different responding to subjective, physiological and neuropsychological measures in these two settings. To this end, we have developed a portable self-operated laboratory which can measure vaginal and clitoral blood flow/volume in response to neutral and erotic film clips, and attention for erotic stimuli.
-Subjects with SSRI induced FSD will have low attention for sexual stimuli.
-Subjects with SSRI induced FSD will benefit more from Lybridos compared to Lybrido and placebo.
-Subjects who already experienced FSD before the usage of SSRIs and have low attention to sexual stimuli will benefit more from Lybrido compared to Lybridos and placebo.
-Subjects who already experienced FSD before the usage of SSRIs and have high attention to sexual stimuli will benefit more from Lybridos compared to Lybrido and placebo.
-The attention for sexual stimuli is SSRI dose-related; the higher the dose the lower the attention for sexual stimuli.
Subjective and genital measures of sexual arousal will be significantly larger at home compared to the laboratory on site.

For subjects with age > 60 years and without diabetic mellitus, familiar hypercholesterolemia or cardiovascular disease: Systolic blood pressure > 160 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure > 90 mmHg (According to the CBO-guideline hypertension (CBO.2000a)). Systolic blood pressure < 90 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure <50 mmHg;

18. Severe chronic or acute liver disease, history of moderate (Child-Pugh B) or severe (Child-Pugh C) hepatic impairment;
19. Use of medicinal herb as Ginkgo Biloba, St John's wort and nutrition containing grapefruit; avoid valerian, gotu kola, kava kava (may increase CNS depression);
20. Subjects who are taking nitrates or nitric oxide donors;
21. Subjects who are taking MAO inhibitors (includes classic MAO inhibitors and linezolid), Calcium channel blockers (e.g. Diltiazem and verapamil), Nefazodone, , TCAs, Tramadol, any medicine belonging to the triptans (i.e. sumatriptan);
22. A substance abuse disorder that in the opinion of the investigator is likely to affect the subject's ability to complete the study or precludes the subjectís participation in the study; mild or moderately alcohol drinking behavior is allowed, only 12 hours before the experimental days is alcohol drinking not allowed. Three weeks before the start of the experimental day is the taking of any recreational drug not allowed. Smoking is allowed;

|- Brief summary||In 3 arms, a total of 40 subjects receive each investigational drug separately for a duration of four weeks. The placebo regime (duration 4 weeks), the Lybrido regime (duration 4 weeks), and the Lybridos regime (duration 4 weeks) are separated by a one- till four-week washout period. |
The order in which subjects undergo the 4 week medication regimes is randomized following a Latin Square design.
At the beginning of each medication regime, subjects take home a mobile psychophysiological laboratory for 3 measurements in the domestic setting. The domestic part of the study is preceded by three experimental days (psychophysiological measurements). During the 3 experimental days, subjects receive placebo, Lybrido or Lybridos in random order.
Subjects visit the site ŗ total of 13 times: 2 screening visits, 3 experimental days, 4 safety control visits, 3 regime follow-ups and 1 final follow up visits. During the safety control visits the subjectís health will be monitored and medication is dispensed.
