Priligy was the first drug for the targeted correction of premature ejaculation in men. The medication prolongs the time of sexual intercourse by 3-4 times. The primary active component of Priligy is dapoxetine hydrochloride, blocking the reuptake of serotonin.
During sexual intercourse, serotonin is one of the central regulators of the ejaculatory reflex. Dapoxetine hydrochloride increases its concentration in the synaptic cleft (pathway of mediators), inhibiting the reuptake of receptors. The result is a slight antidepressant effect and an increase in the time to ejaculation.
Method of administration and recommended dosages
Priligy is available in blue or gray-green tablets with a biconvex shape. Tablets are taken orally, regardless of the meal. The concentration of the drug in the blood plasma reaches a maximum level after an hour and a half, so it is necessary to take Priligy 1-3 hours before the planned sexual contact.
The recommended initial dose for men is 30 mg. If the desired effect is not achieved, it is acceptable to double the dose. The frequency of taking the drug Priligy, should not exceed more that one time per day.
Priligy has a number of restrictions for concurrent use with certain drugs. Such drugs as tramadol, lithium, and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors require 14-day pause before starting to take Priligy.
Simultaneous administration with ketoconazole, ritonavir, atazanavir, saquinavir is prohibited. Concomitant use with anticoagulants increases the risk of bleeding. Priligy should be used with caution in conjunction with phosphodiesterase inhibitors because such co-administration can lead to lower blood pressure.
