Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
A Study of Flibanserin in Breast Cancer Survivors on Tamoxifen or Aromatase Inhibitors
The purpose of this study is to determine if it is feasible for women to take both Flibanserin and tamoxifen for the duration of the study. This study is also trying to find out if Flibanserin improves or has any effect on hyposexual desire disorder/HSDD in women who are taking tamoxifen for breast cancer.
Women age 21 and older
Able to swallow tablets
History of stage 0-III breast cancer that is estrogen and/or progesterone receptor positive
History of breast cancer with no current evidence of disease and have completed primary treatment with any combination of surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy at least 3 months ago and is currently on Tamoxifen, an AI, or ovarian suppression.
Has been taking tamoxifen, an AI, ,or ovarian suppression for at least 3 months.
Has LFTS within 2 times the upper limit of normal proven by a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) performed within 6 months of protocol enrollment and while the patient was on Tamoxifen, an AI, or ovarian suppression
Patients meet criteria for the diagnosis of HSDD as defined by the DSM-IV and ISSWSH Consensus paper. The criteria states that there must be a decrease in sexual desire and this must be a change for at least 3 months from what it was previously. Personal distress resulting from this change must occur. Initial screening will take place with The Decreased Sexual Desire Screener, a 5-question screening tool developed and validated to aid clinicians in making the diagnosis of HSDD. A "yes" response to the first 4 questions on the screener is consistent with HSDD.
Patients must agree to follow the guidelines for alcohol consumption during the 24 weeks of treatment on study
