Priligy is used to treat premature ejaculation, in men between 18 and 64 years old. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual problem. It is when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wants to. This can cause problems for the man and may cause problems in sexual relationships.

What is Priligy

Priligy contains an active substance called dapoxetine. This belongs to a group of medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Priligy may also be known as a ‘urological’ medicine.

Priligy aims to increase the time it takes you to ejaculate and can improve your control over when you ejaculate. This should reduce your frustration or worry about how fast you ejaculate. Priligy may also improve your satisfaction with sexual intercourse.
