Greetings. I have a problem with premature ejaculation. I want to ask a doctor what kind of medication can I take that work for this problem. I have heard of Priligy, Paxi and other ssri-s. Thank you.



You believe that you have a problem with premature ejaculation. I hope you really understand the meaning of it. Because there is another entity called errectile dysfunction. So it's necessary to identify the problem first. First I would like to clarify if you have any other medical condition such as Diabetes. If it's purely premature ejaculation, the treatment process has to be started by looking for any psychological causes such as low mood, depression, anxiety, stress or doubting your ability, etc.

Identifying the cause would help a great deal in solving your problem. There are a few proven techniques as well to overcome this problem. But for a short term solution, yes, as you suggested, Priligy or Paxil 30 mg, 1-2 hours before the intercourse may be tried. It has proven to be effective in psychological related causes. Use one per day. Few possible side effects are nausea, headache, etc. If you could elaborate further on your condition, I might be able to help you more specifically. Hope I have explained to your query. Do get back to me, if you haveany questions.
