Priligy is the only FDA-approved medication for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men aged 18 – 64.

Active ingredient: dapoxetine. By placing an order, you acknowledge that you are familiar with this active substance and know how to take it correctly.

Properties

Priligy is commonly advised for men whose intravaginal latency time is less than 2 minutes or for those who ejaculate even before vaginal penetration.

The drug belongs to the class of SSRIs and helps to slow down the transition of the nerve impulses from the genitals to the brain and vice versa, thus delaying the onset of sperm emission. The results of different studies claim that Priligy can increase the duration of sexual intercourse in men with PE several times.

Dosage and administration

Priligy is available in 30mg and 60mg dosage strengths. It is advised to start the drug intake with 30mg about an hour prior to anticipated sexual intercourse. The tablet should be taken orally and washed down with a full glass of water. This medication is not intended for daily use, yet if there’s such a need, a man can take another dose not sooner than in 24 hours after the previous one. The effect of the dug commonly lasts for about 6 hours.

Based on the response and tolerance to the drug, the dosing regimen can be increased to 60mg for as-needed intake. After six doses of the drug are taken, you should turn to your healthcare provider to evaluate the potential benefits and risks of further treatment with Priligy. 24 weeks is a maximum period that has been studied as to the drug’s safety.
