What is Priligy?

Priligy is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) used to treat premature ejaculation. Its active ingredient Dapoxetine delays ejaculation by increasing serotonin levels in the area of the brain that causes ejaculation. By doing so, it can up to triple ejaculation time.

It is most effective when taken between 1-3 hours before sexual intercourse and can last for up to 12 hours after. It can be taken with or without food. 

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

Who can take Priligy?

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.

Priligy alternatives

EMLA is an alternative cream treatment for premature ejaculation. This is a local anaesthetic used on the penis to lessen sensitivity. This may be particularly useful in those over 65 years old for example, who cannot take Priligy. For more information on premature ejaculation, visit the NHS website.

Why does Priligy cost so much?

It is expected that a generic Priligy will eventually come to market after the patent expires and the cost should drop significantly.
