What is Premature Ejacultion or PE?

Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wishes which can lead to a decrease in sexual satisfaction and quality of life for men and their partners.

Premature ejaculation can take two forms. Men can have premature ejaculation from the first time they have sex (lifelong), or develop premature ejaculation later in life, even after many years of normal ejaculatory experience  (acquired).

What causes Premature Ejaculation?

Over the years, most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. Some experts thought of it to be purely psychological. But now, doctors understand that premature ejaculation can have a biological explanation and is associated with serotonin signals in the brain that control ejaculation.

What are the effects of Premature Ejaculation?

Premature Ejaculation may cause low confidence, anxiety, feelings of shame, and avoidance of sexual intimacy. Some men with premature ejaculation reported that they have less interest in sex and lack in orgasm. Women with partners who have premature ejaculation reported feelings of anger and resentment being not fully satisfied in the love-making act.

Dapoxetine is the first and only drug specifically developed for the treatment of premature ejaculation and is now approved in over 50 countries. Dapoxetine quickly increases the synaptic levels of serotonin, improving the symptoms of premature ejaculation. Based on robust clinical trials involving over 16,000 men worldwide, dapoxetine is proven to be well-tolerated and to significantly improve all measures of premature ejaculation, including control over ejaculation and sexual satisfaction for the couple.

Dapoxetine is indicated for men with premature ejaculation aged between 18 to 64 years, and is clinically proven to work effectively on the first dose. To optimize individual response, Dapoxetine should be taken for at least six doses or four weeks. Dapoxetine should not be taken more than what is prescribed, and should not be taken more than once every 24 hours

Dapoxetine is effective from the first dose. The recommended starting dose of Dapoxetine is 30mg within a 24 hour period. A careful appraisal of individual benefit-risk of dapoxetine should be performed by the physician after the first four weeks of treatment (or at least after six doses of treatment) to determine whether continuing treatment with Dapoxetine is appropriate.

Dapoxetine is available by prescription in 30 mg and 60 mg oral tablets.

Each tablet of Dapoxetine cost around Php450.  Dapoxetine should be taken 1-3 hours before sexual intercourse.

Dapoxetine will be available in the Philippine market this June 2014 in all key Drugstores nationwide.
