What is Priligy?
Priligy is used to treat premature ejaculation by increasing the time it takes, as well as improving the user’s control over ejaculation.
How does Priligy work?
Priligy contains an active substance called ‘dapoxetine’. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors’ (SSRIs). It works by changing the levels of a chemical called serotonin in the brain. Increases in serotonin levels, in turn, delay ejaculation.
What are the benefits of taking Priligy?
Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates before he would like to, often with very little sexual stimulation. There is no set number of minutes that this is defined by, but is down to each individual as to how he feels. Ejaculating early can be extremely frustrating for men and so taking Priligy to counteract it can have a very positive effect on mental health and self-confidence.
Taking Priligy can also improve the user’s sexual or romantic relationships, as premature ejaculation can often cause problems in this area.
How do I use Priligy?
They should be taken orally and swallowed whole with at least one full glass of water, with or without food.
Priligy should be taken 1 to 3 hours before sexual activity and you will need to consult with a medical professional after the first 4 weeks (or 6 doses) to see if you should continue with treatment. If you do, you will need to return for review at least every six months.
Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. The recommended starting dose is usually 30mg, although your doctor may increase this to 60mg.
It should not be taken more than once per day and if you do take more than you should, be sure to tell your doctor or pharmacist.
