Premature ejaculation (PE) is when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wants. This can cause problems for the man and may cause problems in sexual relationships.
Priligy tablets (dapoxetine) are for PE in men aged 18 to 64 years. Priligy delays ejaculation and increases control.
There are two strengths of Priligy tablets: 30mg and 60mg.
Start with 30mg tablets and only increase to 60mg if required.
Tablets are taken 1-3 hours before intercourse as an on-demand treatment before anticipated sexual activity. Swallow tablets whole with or without water or food.
Do not take this medicine more than once every 24 hours or every day.
If Priligy causes dizziness or light headedness, sit with your head between your knees until feeling better. Take no further doses without advice from a doctor.
Effectiveness of Priligy
Approximately one in three men report they have a good or very good response to Priligy. Average times to ejaculation normally increase from around 1 minute to 3 to 3.5 minutes. Results are slightly better with the higher strength tablet, but there is also an increase in side effects.
Side effects of Priligy
As with all medicines, side effects are possible.
Common Priligy side effects (may affect up to 1 in 10 men):
Patient Information Leaflet
Always read the patient information leaflet before commencing treatment. Patient information can be found here.
Alternative treatment for PE
Priligy is the only medicine licensed in the UK for the treatment of premature ejaculation.
Some doctors prescribe local anaesthetic creams, which can be applied to the penis prior to intercourse. This reduces stimulation and may delay ejaculation.
PE is associated with stress and anxiety and can lead to relationship difficulties. Psychological treatments may be the best option for some men
