- Oral medication
- Helps increase the ejaculatory latency time (ELT)
- Long-term treatment efficacy and tolerability
Multiple clinical studies have shown that certain types of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Paxil, have helped many men delay ejaculation for many minutes and it is commonly prescribed for this purpose. This medication usually takes 5 -10 days to begin working. But it could take 2-3 weeks of treatment before some men feel the full effect.
According to a study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, the SSRIs in Paxil “appears to be a useful and reasonably well tolerated oral treatment for premature ejaculation with improved ejaculatory control usually occurring within 1 ± 2 weeks and subsequently increased frequency of intercourse.”
However, like any treatment, a man is considering, this solution for premature ejaculation (PE) may not be for everyone. Every individual has a different bill of health and is suffering from premature ejaculation for different reasons. Thus, it is advisable to make an appointment with a sexual wellness specialist, such as Balanced Medical Solutions, to find out what treatments options are available and if SSRI therapy is the right choice for you.
