This article describes the results of the first report of bupropion sustained release (SR) in nondepressed females with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). Eligible females entered a 4-week, single-blind, placebo baseline phase. Subjects, all of whom did not respond to placebo, continued in a single-blind active treatment phase where they received bupropion SR for up to 8 additional weeks. We assessed HSDD by using investigator ratings of sexual desire and sexual functioning. Of the 51 evaluable subjects who entered the active treatment phase, 29% responded to treatment with bupropion SR. Bupropion SR was generally well tolerated. Pending the results of further study, bupropion SR may offer a treatment option for women with HSDD.
