Priligy, also marketed as Westoxetin and other brand names, is a medication the for treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) in men. PE is a condition where a man ejaculates too early while engaging in sexual intercourse. While this may be treated with humor in some circles, it is a condition that can cause mental distress and interfere with couples’ intimacy. It is also can interfere with the desire to start a family.

Developed by Eli Lilly around 2001, Priligy is one of the first medications developed for the treatment of PE. Eli Lilly later sold to Johnson & Johnson in 2003. It was formally submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a New Drug Application in 2003. It has since been sold to many European and Asian countries where it is actively being used. Around 2012 A company called Menarini acquired the rights to commercialize Priligy in Europe, the UK, much of Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. In the U.S., it has been stuck in FDA red tape since the NDA was submitted in 2003.
The active ingredient in Priligy is Dapoxetine. Dapoxetine works as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) as do many drugs such as Prozac or Zoloft. It differs in that Dapoxetine was developed specifically for PE. It differs in many ways. The main difference is that it is absorbed into the body quickly. Unlike other SSRIs its effect is fast which makes it able to be taken as the need arises. As such, the chance of experiencing any adverse effects is reduced since it is only taken in the short term.
Another big difference is that Dapoxetine exclusively targets the part of the sympathetic nervous system that controls ejaculation. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (i.e., a chemical that passes messages between nerves in the nervous system via synaptic clefts). One of these “nerve messages” is the cue that results in ejaculation. Dapoxetine inhibits this message temporarily and prolongs the time to ejaculate. It also improves control over ejaculation by affecting the time taken to ejaculate. This goes a long way towards reducing frustration associated with PE and allowing the natural fertility process to complete.
As with other medications, there are precautions. It is recommended that it is taken with a full glass of water. To start, men should take only one tablet of the lower dose (i.e., 30 mg) 1 to 3 hours before sexual activity. A trial treatment for 4 weeks should be done to see if that dosage is adequate. Only 1 dosage should be taken in 24 hours. It doesn’t matter if it is take with or without food. Using alcohol with the drug can result in dizziness and one may become drowsy. Other precautions include drug interactions and side effects similar to other SSRIs.
Priligy has a target audience of 18 to 64 year-old males. It is administered in pill form. It is sold in dosages of 30 mg and 60 mg. Since its debut in many countries, Priligy is now available in Australia in generic form. Many of the online pharmacies in Australia do not require prescriptions.
