What is Premature Ejaculation (PE)?
Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a very common and distressing type of sexual dysfunction experienced by men. PE is when a man experiences ejaculation too soon, during sexual activity and typically occurs 2-minutes into sexual contact. PE is most common in men between the ages of 18-35, where the average time to reach ejaculation in this age band is 7-minutes. More than 30% of men suffer from premature ejaculation at some point in their lives and cannot control or delay their ejaculation.
The exact root cause of premature ejaculation remains somewhat unclear, however it can be attributed to intrinsic factors such as psychological or physiological health and extrinsic factors such as personal lifestyle (drinking, smoking and weight gain). PE can also be caused by comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, hypersensitivity and depression. Research has shown that increased levels of serotonin, a potent neurotransmitter, can help reduce the risk of PE, allowing you to last longer in bed.
What is Priligy and How Does it Work?
Priligy contains the active ingredient dapoxetine. Priligy is a new treatment for PE and it is in a class of drugs known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). This class of drug is commonly prescribed to treat depression, however the drugs in this class that do treat depression, such as Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertraline and Citalopram are long-acting. Priligy is a short-acting SSRI, meaning it's use in treating depression was found to be negligible and its use in treating premature ejaculation was found to be efficacious.
Serotonin plays a vital role in male ejaculation and increased reuptake of serotonin causes premature ejaculation. Priligy binds to a part of your neurone to reduce the amount of serotonin being taken back up, meaning ejaculation can be delayed by up to 300%.
How to Take Priligy?
Priligy capsules are very easy to take and have been shown to be very effective in treating PE. One Priligy capsule should be taken 1 - 3 hours before any sexual activity and it can be taken with or without food. It is advised that you not take more than ONE capsule per day. If for some reason you do take more than one capsule in one day, you should contact a medical professional and monitor any side-effects that may occur.
Priligy comes in two different strengths, Priligy 30mg and Priligy 60mg. A doctor will usually prescribe you 30mg as this has been shown to be very effective and patients are less likely to experience any side-effects. if however treatment is not effective with 30mg, 60mg is then prescribed. Priligy is a safe medication to take for men aged 18 - 64. It is advised that men under the age of 18 or over the age of 64 NOT take Priligy.
When tested clinically, most men tolerated Priligy (dapoxetine) very well and any side-effects that were experienced were very much short lived. Priligy is a prescription medication and like all medications, Priligy can potentially cause a small number of side-effects, which are often mild and unlikely to occur. If you use premature ejaculations tablets (priligy) for a prolonged period, you may experience dizziness, diarrhoea, nausea and headaches. For more information on the side-effects associated with Priligy, please refer to the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL).
Priligy should not be taken if alcohol has been consumed as Priligy can increase the effects of alcohol on your body and your chance of experiencing other side-effects may also be increased. Please make sure to always inform us during the consultation if you are on any other medications, as we need to check if there is an interaction.
