Sexual Health

Priligy (dapoxetine) can help to treat premature ejaculation (PE). Priligy is prescribed “off label” by physicians, which means that the medication is typically used to treat another condition. Below is a brief list of some things you may need to know about the drug:

• Type: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor

• Side effects: nausea, headache, dizziness, nervousness

• What to expect: suitable for “on-demand” use -- taken before you have sex, not every day

Notes: Not yet available in the U.S. By prescription in some countries, including Germany, Finland, and Sweden
