Some of the views expressed in the following notes on newly approved products should be regarded as preliminary, as there may have been limited published data at the time of publication, and little experience in Australia of their safety or efficacy. However, the Editorial Executive Committee believes that comments made in good faith at an early stage may still be of value. Before new drugs are prescribed, the Committee believes it is important that more detailed information is obtained from the manufacturer's approved product information, a drug information centre or some other appropriate source. Approved indication: premature ejaculation Priligy (A Menarini) 30 mg tablets Australian Medicines Handbook section 13.3.2 Delayed ejaculation is an adverse effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in men. Dapoxetine, a short-acting SSRI, is the first drug to be marketed for premature ejaculation. After oral administration, peak plasma concentrations of dapoxetine are reached after an hour. Elimination is relatively rapid and the terminal half-life is approximately 19 hours. Priligy is the mainstay of pharmaceutical treatment for Premature Ejaculation (PE). This is a condition where a man ejaculates too quickly during sexual intercourse. It is the most common condition affecting male sexual function. Men with PE are thought to ejaculate by the same method as other men, but this happens more quickly and they feel less in control of their own ejaculation. It is hard to know how long ‘normal’ sex should last. Studies looking at around 500 couples found that the average time between entry of the penis into the vagina and ejaculation was five and a half minutes. However, every couple should decide for themselves what the norm for them is.
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. The study consists of 2 phases: pre-randomization phase (a screening visit and a 2-week baseline period); 12-week double-blind treatment phase during which patients will receive one of 2 doses of dapoxetine or placebo for use on an "as-needed" basis. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U. The total duration of the study is approximately 14 weeks. One form of male sexual dysfunction is premature ejaculation (PE), which is also referred to as rapid ejaculation (RE). Assessments of effectiveness include the average intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (as measured by stopwatch) during sexual intercourse, during the treatment period; control over ejaculation, participant and partner satisfaction with sexual intercourse, participant overall impression of change and severity of symptoms, based on questions asked at monthly intervals through the treatment phase. Safety assessments include the incidence, severity, and type of adverse events during the study, ECGs, as well as laboratory tests. At the end of the baseline period, patients from selected study centers will undergo blood sampling and ECG monitoring before and after the first dose of study medication. The study hypothesis is that treatment for 12 weeks with dapoxetine prolongs intravaginal ejaculatory latency time, compared with placebo, in men with PE. Premature ejaculation (PE) also known as rapid ejaculation, early ejaculation or rapid climax is a common male sexual disorder. PE in simple terms is a male sexual dysfunction characterized by ‘ejaculation which always or nearly always occurs prior to or within about one minute of vaginal penetration, the inability to delay ejaculation on all or nearly all vaginal penetrations, and the presence of negative personal consequences, such as distress, bother, frustration and/or the avoidance of sexual intimacy’. In this blog, we shall get to discuss the effectiveness of Priligy (Dapoxetine) in the management of PE. Many of us would have come across a common medical term referred to intravaginal ejaculation latency time or IELT. IELT is the time between the start of vaginal penetration and the moment of intravaginal ejaculation. It is important to note here that IELT varies among individuals and again within the same person from time to time and in general decreases with age. Many therapists who work on sexual medicine suggest that the average time for heterosexual intercourse is about ‘7’ minutes and that 1-2 minutes is too short, ‘3-7’ minutes is adequate, 7-13 minutes is desirable, while 13 – 30 minutes is considered too long.
Pharmacotherapy is a mainstay for the treatment of premature ejaculation PE. PE can be treated with on-demand selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. This review encompasses studies of dapoxetine pharmacokinetics, animal studies, human phase 1, 2 and 3 efficacy and safety studies and.
