What is Priligy
Priligy is a medication used in the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE). A selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SSRI), derived from the family of drugs usually used for antidepressants; the active ingredient in Priligy, known as dapoxetine, was specifically developed for the treatment of PE in men aged 18 to 64 after scientists discovered the body quickly absorbed and eliminated it.
Why choose Priligy?
The effects of premature ejaculation go well beyond the physical. Experts agreed that there are three different factors which define premature ejaculation:
- a lack of control over ejaculation
- distress for both partners.
Some men affected by it suffer from often crippling psychological issues such as low self-esteem, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and they may see themselves as an inadequate partner. All of that, in addition to the sexual dissatisfaction the couple experience, can have a significant impact on the quality of your life.
The use of a drug such as Priligy can help to bring back that control during sex, enabling a man to feel more confident whilst allowing the couple to develop their intimacy.

Priligy is a prescription medication which can be purchased online from Click Pharmacy. After a short assessment by one of our doctors, you will be given either a 30mg or 60mg prescription as recommended by your doctor, and it will be sent to you for next day delivery.

How effective is Priligy?
In five separate trials which were reviewed and compared in 2012, Priligy was been shown to be highly effective in reducing the negative effects of living with premature ejaculation. In the 6000 study participants, many men found that the length of time between erection and ejaculation was more than doubled, whilst many also noted that they felt more in control of their ejaculation.
The PE sufferers who, prior to taking Priligy, lasted 0.9 minutes found that the 30mg tablet increased that time to 2.8 minutes and the 60mg lengthened this is 3.3 minutes, with patients rating their results as fair, good or very good.
Here are some of the other key benefits:
- Research suggests that more than 65% of men have reported that their condition is better than before
- It can increase your satisfaction and that of your partner.
- You can achieve sexual fulfilment.
How does Priligy work?
The dapoxetine contained in Priligy promotes ejaculatory delay by inhibiting the serotonin transporter. It inhibits the ejaculatory expulsion reflex at a supraspinal level and is presumed to be linked to the inhibition of neuronal re-uptake of serotonin and the subsequent potentiation of the neurotransmitter's action.
What dose should I choose?
You will usually be recommended to start on a 30mg dose. If the effects are beneficial and you suffer little to no side effects, then you may be able to increase your dosage to 60mg.
You may consult your doctor to confirm which dose is ideal for you, or you may speak to our specialist doctors at Click Pharmacy for further advice. You should also discuss your experience of the drug after around 4 weeks or after the first 6 doses to see whether the treatment suits you and how best to continue.
How should I take Priligy?
It is recommended to take a tablet 1 to 3 hours before engaging in intercourse. The tablet can be taken with or without a meal, and the maximum dose is one tablet daily.
What is contained in Priligy?

What are the side effects of Priligy?
Whilst there is a possibility of side effects inherent in the use of any medication, dapoxetine, the active ingredient in Priligy, has been well tolerated in each of its studies. Any issues reported were either mild or moderate and usually related to taking too higher a dose. As such, lowering from the 60mg to 30mg would ease the ill-effects.
The most common side effects are:
Insomnia, fatigue, nasopharyngitis (a cold) and dry mouth have also been known side effects.
