Buy Priligy online

Priligy is a treatment for premature ejaculation which helps men to last longer in bed. It’s ideal for men who are over 18 and younger than 65 who find that they ejaculate with little sexual stimulation. Premature ejaculation can make you feel frustrated or anxious and can cause tension between you and your partner, but Priligy can help you to last longer so you won’t have to worry about it and can enjoy your alone time with your partner.


How dapoxetine works

Dapoxetine is the active ingredient in Priligy and it’s a type of medication known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by increasing the amount of time it takes for you to ejaculate, and can help to give you more control over when you ejaculate. This makes it perfect for those who suffer from premature ejaculation and are looking for a solution.



The amount of Priligy you’ll need to take will be decided by your doctor, so always follow their directions when taking this product. The usual starting dose of this product will be 30mg, but your doctor may increase it to 60mg. Take 1 – 3 hours before you plan to have sex. Swallow with at least one full glass of water, as this may reduce your chances of fainting while taking this medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Priligy should not be taken by women or those who were assigned female at birth and is suitable for men only.

If you are unsure whether this medication is right for you, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Priligy can make your blood pressure drop when you stand up, which can make you faint.

If this happens to you while taking this medicine, speak to your doctor as soon as possible.

To reduce your chances of this happening, make sure to do the following:

  • Take the Priligy tablet with at least one full glass of water
  • Do not take this product if you are dehydrated
  • If you feel like you may faint, lie down so your head is lower than the rest of your body, or sit with your head between your knees, this will stop you from falling or hurting yourself if you do faint
  • Do not stand up quickly if you’ve been lying or sitting down for a long time
  • Do not drive or use any machinery if you feel faint while taking this medication

Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates too quickly during sex.


Although it is a common problem that many men deal with at one point or another, they may not want to talk about it openly


The average time for ejaculation is 5 and a half minutes, but it may be longer for men who have sex with men.


You may have premature ejaculation if you regularly ejaculate within 1 minute of entering your partner, but it’s up to the two of you to decide whether it’s a problem or not.


Some of the most common causes of premature ejaculation include:

  • Prostate problems
  • Thyroid problems
  • Using recreational drugs
  • Depression, stress, or other emotional problems
  • Anxiety about your relationship or sexual performance

You do need a prescription for this medication in the UK.

Our healthcare professionals can provide prescriptions if they think this treatment would be right for you and your condition.

When you click the button which reads “Start Consultation” at the top of this page, you’ll see a short questionnaire set up by our healthcare team which is designed to help them understand your medical needs.

Just like an in-person consultation with your GP, our doctors will assess your answers to their questions and write a prescription for the treatment they think will be best for you.

You’ll then be able to pay for your medication and we’ll send it out to you quickly and in discreet packaging.
