Priligy is a medication used for the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) in men aged 18 to 64 years old. It contains the active ingredient dapoxetine. Dapoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor medicine. It works by increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain delaying the time it takes to ejaculate and can improve the control over the ejaculation. It starts to work very quickly, so it is taken when you anticipate having sex, rather than every day.
Priligy is a prescription-only medication and should only be taken under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Priligy is available in two forms: 30mg and 60mg film-coated tablets. Priligy may not be suitable for everyone, and can have side effects, such as headache, nausea, dizziness, and insomnia.
