Priligy is a drug that is intended for use by men with premature ejaculation problems. The treatment can be used by both young and old men who ejaculate in less than two minutes after penetration. In most cases, this occurs with less stimulation and prior to a man even wishes to ejaculate. Men who have interpersonal difficulty and marked personal distress that is occurs due to troubles related to premature ejaculation. Besides, Priligy can be used by males with poor ejaculation control. This treatment should not be taken by individuals using monoamine oxidase inhibitor medication for treating depression or those that have it in the past two weeks. Men who are using thioridazine to cure schizophrenia or have used it in the past 14 days should not use Priligy. The treatment is also unsuitable for teenagers and people who have had a heart condition, psychiatric illness or have fainted in the past.
Priligy contains dapoxetine, an active ingredient that is a selective serotonin inhibitor that functions by enhancing serotonin levels in the body. This process results in a delay in the reaction of brain areas that trigger ejaculation.
Besides, Dapoxetine increases serotonin activity in the nervous system. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, which prevents ejaculation. Men who experience premature ejaculation have their serotonin levels disrupted, or their serotonin signaling mechanism is working incorrectly.
How Should This Medicine Be Used?
Priligy is designed for the treatment of premature ejaculation. Thus, it should be explicitly used by individuals who experience orgasm or ejaculate before two minutes after penetration. You should avoid taking Priligy when you are dehydrated. If you haven’t taken water for 4 to 6 hours and you have been doing strenuous work that has made you sweat for long, or you suffer from an illness that causes you to diarrhoea or have a fever, there are high chances that you may feel light-headed, dizzy, or even faint after taking Priligy. Besides, avoid taking alcohol while using Priligy as it might increase alcohol’s sedative effects.
