Priligy is a new medication created by Janssen-Cilag / Johnson & Johnson that may be the right medication for you if you suffer from Premature Ejaculation (Priligy in clinical trials has been shown to improve staying power by as much as three times).
'Up to 40% of men suffer from Premature Ejaculation'
Priligy is indicated as a safe and effective treatment for Premature Ejaculation in adult patients. In laymans terms it simply stops you from coming too soon; a problem more common than you might think, in fact,there may be up to 40% of sexually active men who suffer from Premature Ejaculation.
'Treatment is now available'
The introduction of Priligy means something can now be done for those who suffer from Premature Ejaculation. Priligy is an oral medication whose active ingredient is Daproxetine hydrochloride and in favour of this medication, all research so far has shown it to increase the staying power and therefore the length of sexual activity in men.
How Priligy Works
To understand how Priligy works, you need to have a comprehensive understanding of premature ejaculation and its causes- particularly in relation to yourself and your daily life (as stress can be a major factor in its many forms).
'Premature Ejaculation is...'
Premature Ejaculation is commonly known as a problem where a man reaches ejaculation too soon after penetration. However this is subject to opinion beacuse: what may be too quick for some men, may not be for others. Researchers have suggested that if a man ejaculates within 2 minutes of actual penetration, this may be considered too premature however, and some longer times may also be considered to be premature ejaculation, depending on the persons established 'norm'.
Premature Ejaculation in short, has been shown in studies to be caused by an imbalance of serotonin in the brain - this then can lead to rapid ejaculation. To prevent this imbalance in a patient, SSRI medication is prescribed to the patient and these in simple terms 'balance' everything out. It is for this reason that some doctors have been prescribing patients suffering from Premature Ejaculation (PE) with SSRIs 'off label' for some time.
'Short Half life so works fast'
SSRI medications are basically anti-depressants and are usually prescribed to patients suffering from anxiety and depression; and mose take around 14 days to become effective in a person's system. This issue led to doctors and pharmacists carrying out intensive research and coming up with Priligy, which uniquely has a short half life of a couple of hours. So priligy works fast and leaves your system fast and so the risks of antidepressants are not all present. Men take Priligy 1-3 hours before sex, resulting in increased staying power as well as improved control of the anticipated ejaculation - when it is desired.
