First drug for premature ejaculation

Up to one-third of men of all ages are chronically plagued by premature ejaculation.

“We tend to think of this as, ‘Oh, it affects novices, the first time, and young people,'” Pryor said Thursday from Minneapolis. “But no. There are some people who have this who are older, and oftentimes it affects them their entire lives.”

“Here’s something you take whenever you want to have intercourse, like an hour or so before, and it had a low incidence of side-effects. And all of a sudden, they were lasting three, four times what they were before.”

Dapoxetine is the first drug especially targeted towards this common problem, reports the CBC.
