Priligy is the brand name of the drug Dapoxetine belonging to the class of Selective Serotonin reuptake inhibitors commonly called an SSRI. Priligy is considered to be the mainstay of the pharmaceutical company for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men. Priligy is thought to be used in the treatment of premature ejaculation more than any other medicine belonging to the class of serotonin intake inhibitors. There are various reasons behind this. The effect of Priligy is very rapid and starts appearing a few hours after taking the drug due to its rapid absorption quality in the body. Due to its fast absorption and elimination quality, the drug remains in the body for only a short duration. This nature is thus beneficial because it reduces the chances of adverse effects but has a drawback of reducing the spontaneity of the sex. Priligy is the first ever drug licensed for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men.
Premature ejaculation is a male problem in which a man ejaculates quite early after intercourse leading to unsatisfactory sexual act. The average time for male ejaculatory latency is considered 7 min. it is no doubt very difficult to talk about this sexual issue and can lead to relationship distress in many cases.
Premature ejaculation is becoming a common problem among men these days. Men suffering from this problem ejaculates in the same way as other men but it happens quickly and it’s not under the own control of the person. There is no hard and fast rule about the normal time of sex. A study on 500 couples shows that different couples find different timing to be satisfactory for them. There is nothing to worry if the problem occurs once in a blue moon but if the person ejaculates without his will for most of the time during intercourse then it is necessary to seek professional help. Premature ejaculation can affect the quality of life, therefore, it is very important to get proper treatment for the problem.
The exact causes of premature ejaculation are not known but the brain is mainly responsible. Men having low levels of serotonin chemical in their brain take a shorter time to ejaculate. Emotional factors play a very important role in this condition.
Feeling of Guilt
Premature ejaculation can also be the result of erectile dysfunction in many men because the penis does not remain firm. Men suffering from erectile dysfunction are always in a hurry to ejaculate due to fear of losing their erection during intercourse. The treatment of erectile dysfunction can be helpful in eliminating the premature ejaculation.
Mechanism of Action of Priligy:
Priligy contains the active ingredient Dapoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor used to treat premature ejaculation in men. Priligy increases the activity of serotonin in the nervous system. As serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain involved in the transmission of messages between the nerve cells of the brain. Serotonin has many different functions in the body and is also involved in the transmission of nerve impulses to the nerves in the brain that are involved in the process of ejaculation. Priligy inhibits the reuptake of serotonin allowing it to exert longer effects and helps in improving the ejaculation time as well as self-control over ejaculation. Increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain helps to increase the time of ejaculation as well as improving the control over ejaculation process in an individual. The improvement in ejaculation time reduces the frustration about quick ejaculation.
The medicine should be taken a few hours before having a sexual intercourse.
