Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a hot topic at this very moment in the UK. Now, what seems like a taboo subject is an everyday chat in all walks of life. As we are will be releasing a product to help with this, we wanted to answer your main questions with answers from our pharmacist, Scott. Enjoy our 2 part series.
How often can you take Priligy tablets?
Priligy is not intended for continuous daily use. It should be taken only when sexual activity is anticipated. Priligy must not be taken more frequently than once every 24 hours.
Is it safe to use Priligy continuously?
Priligy is not intended for continuous daily use. It should be taken only when sexual activity is anticipated. Priligy, of either strength, must not be taken more frequently than once every 24 hours.
If I take more than one tablet will it delay my ejaculation more than if I just take one tablet?
No, it will just increase your chances of experiencing side effects.
When should I take Priligy tablets?
The tablet should be taken 1-3 hours before sexual activity.
How long do Priligy tablets last?
Priligy is absorbed and starts to work quickly reaching a maximum concentration in the body after one to two hours of being taken.
It is eliminated very quickly and after 24 hours, 95% of the drug will have been removed from the body.
Can you take Priligy tablets on an empty stomach?
Priligy can be taken on an empty or full stomach. However, Priligy can cause symptoms of nausea or dizziness which may be increased by taking the medication on an empty stomach. To help alleviate the side effects, try taking your tablet with a meal.
How much longer will a Priligy tablet make me last?
Priligy can increase the time a man can last by 2-3x.
Is it safe to use Priligy alongside ED treatment?
Priligy can be taken alongside erectile dysfunction medication like Sildenafil. It is recommended that you are in a position where you can lie or sit down if you feel light-headed or faint the first few times you take them together.
Both treatments can sometimes lower blood pressure and if you get light-headed it is best to leave 24hours between taking Priligy with ED treatment.
Do I need a prescription?
Priligy is prescription only medicine, and not available over the counter or in high-street pharmacies.
What happens if the Priligy tablets don’t work?
Priligy does not always work for everyone the first time they use it. If this is the case you should not give up, the guidance states that you should try Priligy at least six times before trying an alternative dose or treatment.
Will taking 60mg Priligy tablets make me last longer than the 30mg tablets?
Priligy 60mg tablet is more likely to prolong time to ejaculation significantly; however, there is also a higher chance of side effects. You should only use Priligy 60mg tablets after you have found Priligy 30mg ineffective and not experienced any adverse effects, such as nausea, dizziness/lightheadedness, and sweating.
