Premature Ejaculation: What Is It?
Premature Ejaculation, also known as PE, is a condition that causes a man to ejaculate too quickly during sexual intercourse. Many men have it from their first sexual encounter but it is also possible to develop it later in life. It is often considered one of the most stressful male sexual dysfunctions as it causes men to feel inadequate and out of control. The obvious disadvantages of this disorder are that it causes personal stress, low self-esteem, dissatisfaction for both the sufferer and their sexual partners, and difficulty with interpersonal relationships, making it a very serious issue. PE can be caused psychologically or physiologically. Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, has been shown to play a major part in this condition.
Priligy or Dapoxetine
Priligy is the first oral drug for PE on the market. It is an approved treatment that is easily obtainable on demand. It is marketed as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and only lasts for a short period of time. Therefore, it is restrictedly only taken when it is necessary, such as 1-3 hours before engaging in sexual intercourse. Originally manufactured by Janssen, it was made especially to be an on demand treatment for Premature Ejaculation. Over 15,000 men have used the drug in various clinical studies conducted both before and after the drug was made available to the public. This makes it the largest and most extensive clinical trial program for the disorder ever conducted.
30mg of Priligy is the recommended dosage for first time users. However, if you do not feel 30mg was enough and you did not experience any negative side effects with the drug, the dosage can be increased up to 60mg.
How to Take the Drug
It is advised to swallow the tablet whole as it tastes bitter and is generally unpleasant to take. It is also advised that the tablet should be taken with a full glass of water, but it is not required that you eat beforehand.
Priligy should only be taken when necessary. Optimally it should be taken 1-3 hours before intercourse to allow it time to work. It should not be taken daily or at regular intervals, unlike other medication, and use of the drug should be restricted to when the user expects to engage in sexual intercourse. It is ill advised to take more than one dosage within a 24-hour period.
