Priligy is a prescription-only medication formulated specifically to treat men with premature ejaculation (PE). This treatment improves sexual satisfaction and prolongs ejaculation for men who come too quickly. The effects of this medication last up to four hours after intake; this means that people on this treatment can sustain an erection 3 times more than usual and control ejaculation.
Priligy is available in 30 mg and 60 mg tablet-based options and also effective for men aged 18 years to 64 years. However, you can purchase it mainly with a doctor’s prescription.

How Priligy Performs
Each Priligy tablet contains 30 mg and 60 mg of dapoxetine, an active ingredient under the class of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). These antidepressants boost the secretion of serotonin (a neurotransmitter commonly called the “feel-good hormone”) in the brain. As a result, transmitted messages can help sustain an erection for a long period and gives an individual control over ejaculation.
What Should I Expect From Priligy?
With more control over erection and ejaculation, you should last 3 times longer in bed, on average. The recommended dosage is one tablet of either 30 or 60 mg of Priligy, which you have to take at least an hour or two before sexual activity. Being a prescription-based medication, you can only purchase it with a doctor’s prescription. You can buy in the UK from reputable clinics that provide top-quality online medical service to people.
Priligy can be administered either with or without food. Take one tablet of 30/60 mg with a full glass of water and swallow it whole; avoid chewing or crushing as you may get a bitter taste in the process. You may need to see your doctor often, depending on your progress of recovery; this can be after 6 doses or 4 weeks of treatment and may extend to every 6 months.
