Priligy is a medication containing the active ingredient Dapoxetine. It’s formulated to serve as an on-demand oral treatment for premature ejaculation (PE), a frequent sexual concern in men. Available as film-coated tablets, it comes in blister packs for ease of use.
Priligy is designed for the treatment of premature ejaculation in adult men between 18 to 64 years of age. The medication is particularly helpful for men experiencing ejaculation in less than two minutes following penetration, on most occasions, and with minimal stimulation. It addresses the distress and interpersonal difficulty arising from premature ejaculation and aids in enhancing control over ejaculation.
How to Use
Priligy should be taken orally, swallowed whole with a full glass of water. The medication is intended to be taken as needed, approximately 1-3 hours prior to sexual activity. It is not meant for daily consumption, but should be used only when sexual activity is anticipated.
How It Works
Priligy, containing Dapoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), increases the activity of serotonin in the nervous system. Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, plays a crucial role in the ejaculation process. By enhancing serotonin’s action, Dapoxetine delays the nerve responses, thereby prolonging the time to ejaculation and providing men greater control over their sexual performance.
Priligy offers several key benefits. It effectively extends the duration of sexual intercourse and gives men increased control over ejaculation. By reducing personal distress associated with premature ejaculation, it significantly improves sexual satisfaction for both partners involved.
Common Side Effects
While Priligy is generally well-tolerated, some men may experience side effects, which are typically mild to moderate in nature. These can include dizziness, headaches, and feelings of nausea. Most of these effects dissipate within a few hours of taking the medication.
Dosage and Administration
The recommended initial dose for Priligy is 30 mg, taken as needed approximately 1 to 3 hours before sexual activity. If the effect of this dose is insufficient and the side effects are manageable, the dose may be increased to the maximum recommended dose of 60 mg. It is not recommended for continuous daily use.
Priligy should not be taken by men with heart conditions, such as heart failure or rhythm issues, or by those currently on certain other medications. Always consult a healthcare professional before starting any new medication.
Store Priligy tablets in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Always keep the medication out of reach of children and in its original package until it’s time to take it, to protect from moisture.
