Priligy is used to treat one of the most common sexual disorders – premature ejaculation. Any man in Australia, who wants to use an effective medicine to prolong sexual intercourse, can buy Priligy.

Priligy belongs to the group of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). The mechanism of Priligy action is based on blocking the receptors of the brain, which absorb serotonin. It is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in the pathogenesis of premature ejaculation. Priligy affects the impulses that affect the speed of reaching an orgasm, and, thus, extend the period from the beginning of a sexual intercourse until its end.

After the ingestion, Priligy is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. The maximum blood plasma concentration is reached in 1-2 hours after the ingestion. The intake of fatty and high-calorie food can postpone the time to reach peak concentration, yet the degree of the drug absorption remains unchanged.

The half-life of Priligy is about 19 hours after the oral administration. The final removal of the drug from the body occurs a day after the ingestion.

In Australian pharmacies, you can buy a package of 3, 6 or 18 Priligy tablets. Each tablet contains 30 mg of the active ingredient Dapoxetine. If the price for Priligy is too high for a patient, he can buy the medicine at a discounted price in one of the online pharmacies, like Chemist Warehouse.

Priligy pills can be used by all men with a low ejaculatory threshold aged 18 to 64. The medicine should be taken only once a day, regardless of meals.

The recommended initial dose of Priligy is one 30 mg tablet daily, about 1 to 3 hours before an alleged sexual activity. In an insufficient effect and good tolerability, you can take two Priligy tablets at once.

The degree of Priligy effectiveness in increasing the duration of sexual intercourse in men can vary, depending on the drug dosage, as well as the genetically determined ejaculatory threshold.

  • Delay in ejaculation while on Priligy usually occurs after 5-10 days of regular medication use, yet it can occur earlier. Priligy provides a statistically significant improvement in ejaculatory control.
  • The resulting side effects are usually minor. Adverse reactions that emerge in the first week of Priligy administration gradually disappear within 2-3 weeks.

The Urological Society of Australia and the New Zealand (USANZ) repeatedly confirmed the use of Priligy to increase the duration of sexual intercourse. The advantages of Priligy for increasing the ejaculatory threshold are:

  • has a therapeutic effect after the first application;
  • facilitates the elimination of difficulties in interpersonal relations between men and women;
  • delays the time of an orgasm onset, which allows a man to improve control of ejaculation;
  • eliminates psychological problems, associated with premature ejaculation (fear, tension, self-doubt).

Priligy does not affect the pharmacokinetics of Sildenafil or Tadalafil, which a man can use to treat erectile dysfunction. Therefore, the combination of Priligy with PDE5 inhibitors is safe and contributes to both improving erectile function and prolonging sexual intercourse.

Priligy was the first Dapoxetin-based drug. The medicine was created by the specialists of the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. It was originally intended to use Priligy as an antidepressant. However, Dapoxetin was not suitable for the anti-depression treatment due to its very short half-life.

Clinical trials were stopped in the first phase and postponed for a while, before Priligy became an agent for prolonging sexual intercourse. In the period of 1998 to 2003, the patent for Priligy development was held by various pharmaceutical companies:

  • PPD GenuPro
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Pharmaceutical Product Development

The current owner of the rights to sell Dapoxetin-containing drugs is the pharmaceutical company Alza Corporation.

In Australia, Priligy was first registered on September 2, 2010. However, it took at least 3 years before men could use the medicine. Finally, the Australian drug supplier, Menarini Company, announced the date of Priligy appearance in Australian pharmacies – July 1, 2013.

To date, Priligy is the best-selling drug in Australia for the treatment of premature ejaculation. The independent edition Australian Prescriber has repeatedly assigned Priligy the unofficial status of a sales leader among drugs for the sexual intercourse prolongation.

Judging by the plethora of positive reviews about the benefits of Priligy, the drug really helps to increase the duration of sexual intercourses and increase libido.

Priligy efficacy in increasing the duration of sexual intercourse is combined with a low profile of side effects. Priligy is a first-line drug in the therapy of premature ejaculation, both in daily intake and with on-demand use.
