There are no drugs approved in the United States that can treat PE. Some antidepressants showed results of delayed orgasm which were later used by doctors, off-label to treat PE. Drugs like Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertraline affect the serotonin levels and used for treating PR. If one drug does not work another one can be tried but even if the second one does not work other Drugs too would not help. Some drugs are prescribed to be taken every day and some are prescribed to be taken only before sex. The doctor is the best to decide which drug to be taken based on your sexual activity level. It may be possible that you start having PE if you stop taking the medicines. Mostly the patients need to take medicines on an ongoing basis suffering from PE.
- Numbness cream and sprays
There are creams and sprays that can be applied to the head of the penis about 20 to 30 minutes before the sexual activity. It is advisable not to apply the numbness cream or sprays longer than suggested time as it may take away your erection. The numbness cream or spray should not be left exposed while having vaginal sex because the cream would cause numbness in the vagina too. The cream should be washed away from the penis 5 to 10 minutes before sex. Use of condom can also help to decrease the sensation.
