It is estimated that about 1 in 3 men will experience premature ejaculation at some point in their life. Unfortunately, many men will not seek treatment due to feelings of embarrassment or inaccessibility to healthcare.
It can occur for a variety of physical or phycological reasons and may go away with time by addressing the underlying reasons or be lifelong.
PE is classified as a penetration ejaculation time of less than two minutes and a general lack of control over ejaculation. Occasional premature ejaculation is normal however if it occurs regularly over 6 months, medicines such as Priligy are suggested.
How long do Priligy tablets take to work?
Unlike many SSRIs medicines, which are typically used as antidepressants, Dapoxetine is quite different. It acts quickly, reaching its peak effect in about 1-3 hours and is eliminated quickly from the body, losing its effect in about 12 hours. This prevents any side effects from lingering when the medicine is not needed.
It is most effective when taken between 1-3 hours before sexual intercourse. One tablet should be swallowed whole 1-3 hours before sexual activity with a glass of water. It can be taken with or without food.
It should not be taken every day continuously. Only take a dose when required before sexual activity to avoid side effects. Never take more than one tablet within a 24 hour period.
It is recommended to take up to six doses of Priligy before deciding whether to continue treatment. Although they are generally effective, PE is caused by a multitude of factors that may be affecting you on a single use of Dapoxetine. If you experience no benefit after six doses, discuss 60mg Priligy tablets or alternative treatments with your doctor.
