Priligy should only be taken by men who have been diagnosed with premature ejaculation as it's safety has not been established in men without premature ejaculation.
Priligy (Dapoxetine) is a short-acting Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI), specifically for the treatment of premature ejaculation. It works by increasing the level of the chemical serotonin in the nervous system which may lead to an increase in the time to ejaculation.
Priligy increases the time taken to ejaculate and can improve overall control of it. It is taken as and when needed one to three hours before sex. Some men notice an improvement straight away. However, others may need to take it a few times before they notice any changes.
Do not increase your dose unless advised by your doctor. The maximum dose is 60mg. Overuse of Priligy should be avoided as it can increase the risks of side effects.
