Product description

Priligy is the brand name of the drug Dapoxetine, which is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) used in the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE). This is a condition that affects many men and it is treatable. The drug is indicated for use in men who ejaculate in less than two minutes after penetration during sex. Priligy helps men to extend the time between the erection and ejaculation, thereby also enabling greater pleasure during sex. No matter what the cause for PE may be this medication will definitely help in overcoming the problem of PE. The drug is absorbed easily making it fast-acting and therefore ideal for many individuals.

Working Mechanism

The exact mechanism of Priligy (Dapoxetine) in delaying ejaculation is as yet unclear. It is believed that the drug works by modifying the chemicals in the brain that help with ejaculation. The drug has a very short biological half-life of about 1.5 hours. By taking the medication about an hour before sex, the individual would be able to properly control the ejaculation during sex and delay it. The drug is very effective in almost all men who take it. However, one should not confuse this medication as a treatment for erectile dysfunction or cure for PE as it is effective for this condition only when it is consumed around the time of sexual activity.

Dosage and administration

Priligy comes in dosage strengths of 60mg and 30mg. It should be taken 60 minutes before sex. It can be used by men of 18 to 64 years. It can be taken with any liquid other than alcohol. Usually, people start with 30 mg dose of priligy for 4 weeks to understand whether the dose is right for them. Dose can be increased to 60mg, if required. Only one tablet should be consumed for every 24 hours. It is not a daily dose drug and thus, missing a dose would not affect effectiveness.

Things you should know about Priligy

Like many erectile dysfunction pills, priligy is also not recommended in individuals who have taken a MAO inhibitor in the last fourteen days or are currently taking drugs that are antidepressants, herbal products, SSRIs, etc. as there can be harmful drug interactions.
