If you know anything about medications and if you are following all the latest news from the field of pharmaceuticals, then you have most probably encountered Priligy on many occasions. It is a medication that is used for treating premature ejaculation and it is only natural that there are some doubts about the efficiency of this medication. In fact, many people even think that it is just another scam like so many herbal supplements and other natural products that claim to be the ultimate solution for PE but that are no more effective than M&Ms.
However, the fact is that Priligy is a bonafide medication which has been approved for use in cases of PE in a number of European countries where different regulatory bodies tested, studied and approved Priligy as the first PE medication that has been granted an approval. In the near future, it is going to be approved for use in the UK, the USA, Canada and pretty much everywhere else, which means that it is not yet another scam, but a proper medication, just like Viagra and other ED medications that have also been approved and that are a different story from all the untested and unapproved medications that get advertised for this and that in the field of sexual performance treatments.
Of course, this means that we should now cover the basic details about how Priligy actually works and how it produces all its beneficial effects. Before we can do that, we need to explain a few basic facts about ejaculation. Ejaculation consists of two processes; the process of emission and the process of expulsion. The first phase leads to depositing the semen in the posterior urethra, while the second phase involves contractions of different muscles which in turn leads to semen being ejaculated from the penis. Over the years, it has been shown that the ejaculation is greatly affected and modulated by the functioning of a neurotransmitter known as serotonin. Premature ejaculation has been observed to happen in cases where the levels of serotonin were too low.
And this is where Priligy comes in. Namely, this medication is in fact a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI for short), which means that through the inhibition of reuptake of the serotonin it elevates the levels of this neurotransmitter, which then results in alleviating the symptoms of premature ejaculation. In the past, some much more powerful and much more dangerous SSRIs have been prescribed off-label for this purpose, but there is now finally an SSRI that has been designed and developed with exactly this in mind, minimizing the possible side effects and making sure that the patients are in no risk of developing any unwanted side effects or symptoms.
I hope that this short article has helped you understand the basic facts about Priligy and the way it works and that you will now know how to appreciate this “bonafide” medication much more and to realize that it is currently the only real approved treatment for premature ejaculation.
