How does Priligy (Dapoxetine) work?

Priligy is a proven treatment for Premature Ejaculation, which is defined as men who ejaculate within 2 minutes of sexual intercourse. The active ingredient is dapoxetine, a type of medicine called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI).

Priligy increases serotonin levels in the area of the brain that causes ejaculation. By doing so, it increases the time it takes to ejaculate. Men with premature ejaculation may find this helpful because delaying ejaculation time can improve feelings of frustration and worry around sex. 

It should be taken between 1-3 hours before intercourse and can last for up to 12 hours after. It can be taken with or without food. However, you should not drink alcohol when taking this medicine because alcohol can have a negative impact on the time taken to ejaculate.

It should not be taken every day continuously and never take more than one tablet within a 24 hour period. 

It is licensed for men between the ages of 18 and 64 who have experienced PE for at least 6 months. Two strengths are available: Priligy 30mg tablets and Priligy 60mg tablets. If you have not had it before, treatment should be started with the 30mg tablets.

It is a prescription-only treatment, however, our online doctor can generate a prescription free of charge after you complete an online medical assessment. Our doctors can then assess if it is safe and suitable for you. If approved by our doctors, our online pharmacy will dispense and dispatch it to your chosen address.

EMLA is an alternative cream treatment for premature ejaculation. For more information on premature ejaculation, visit the NHS website.


  • What is Priligy?

    Priligy is a prescription-only medication which is used to treat premature ejaculation in men. It can be used by men aged 18-64.

  • How effective is Priligy?

    Priligy works for around 8 out of 10 men (80%). Generally, the time taken to ejaculate should double or triple. However, this is not a cure for the condition. It will only work when you take it, and any underlying causes of PE should be addressed.

  • Who is Priligy suitable for?

    It is not suitable to take for every man diagnosed with premature ejaculation. For example, it is not recommended for some men with heart, kidney and liver problems. It can also interact with other medications, such as other antidepressants. It is important that you mention all other medication that you are taking in your online consultation.

  • What are the side effects of Priligy?

    The most common side effects of Priligy are nausea, headache and dizziness. Priligy can also cause some people to feel faint or cause their blood pressure to drop when standing up. To reduce the likelihood of this happening, take your dose with a full glass of water and do not take a dose if you are dehydrated. 

  • How does Priligy work?

    Priligy works by changing the levels of the chemical serotonin in the brain. By increasing serotonin levels, it helps to delay ejaculation.

  • What is the ingredient in Priligy?

    It contains the active ingredient Dapoxetine.

  • What is the dosage of Priligy?

    The starting dose is 30mg, however, if no improvement is seen, your doctor may increase the dosage to 60mg. A maximum of ONE dose should be taken in a 24 hour period.

  • When should I take Priligy?

    Priligy should be taken around 1-3 hours before sexual intercourse.

  • Can I take Priligy and Cialis together?

    While taking these medications together is possible, we do not prescribe these medications concurrently. Both medications can result in a blood pressure drop, so when taken together, the effects of dizziness are increased, and possible fainting can occur. If you have both ED and premature ejaculation, see the next question.

  • I have premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction, should I take Priligy?

    If you have both premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction symptoms, it is recommended that you initially attempt an erectile dysfunction medication. Sometimes premature ejaculation will resolve once erectile problems are dealt with since premature ejaculation can often be a result of stress.

  • Can I buy Priligy over the counter?

    Priligy, in the UK, is not available over the counter. At Simple Online Pharmacy, we offer Priligy as part of our online doctor and pharmacy service. You will need to complete an online medical assessment as part of your order. This helps our doctors to make sure it is safe and suitable for you to take.  

    If approved, our pharmacy team will dispense and dispatch the medicine to your address.
