*** begin quote ***

– A testosterone patch designed to pep up a woman’s sex drive received the thumbs down in a study published in the UK’s Drugs and Therapeutics Bulletin. The side effects included acne, excess hair, breast pain, weight gain, insomnia, voice deepening and migraine. “Significant numbers” of women placed on a placebo patch reported an increase in sex drive.
