Anti-Depressant Medications/SSRI's (Priligy is coming soon)

Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors are anti-depressant medications, but the side effect of these medications is found to be delayed ejaculation. In Australia, Prozac, Zoloft and Aropax are SSRI's which are often used for the purpose of delaying ejaculation.

However, a new SSRI medication called Priligy (Dapoxetine) will be released in Australia soon, which is solely designed for the treatment of premature ejaculation.

Please consult your doctor about further information on premature ejaculation treatment and whether this treatment is appropriate for you.

Topical Anaesthetics

Some men with Premature Ejaculation report hypersensitivity on some parts of their penis. For these men topical anaesthetics, either delivered in the form of a spray, cream or gel can be useful. It is important to apply the topical anaesthetic only to the sensitive areas of the penis as some men report loss of erection due to loss of feelings to the penis.

Please consult your doctor about further information on premature ejaculation treatment and whether this treatment is appropriate for you.

PDE5 Inhibitors (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra)

Premature EjaculationPDE5 inhibitors are used to treat erectile dysfunction, but may also prolong ejaculation in men with premature ejaculation.

By improving a man's erection quality, some report that it enhances the control they have over ejaculation and hence prolong their ejaculatory time.

The use of PDE5 inhibitors as a treatment for premature ejaculation is usually only suggested when men with premature ejaculation also seem to suffer from erectile dysfunction.

Penile Injection Therapy

Penile injection therapy is a treatment for erectile dysfunction, when a man is not responding to oral medications/PDE5 inhibitors. It can also be effective when a man is suffering from both premature ejaculation and severe erectile dysfunction. However, even though a man's erections may be enhanced, some man still report delayed ejaculation when using penile injection therapy.
