Is Premature Ejaculation Treatment Right for Me?
These treatments for premature ejaculation may not be right for everyone. Some medical conditions and medications can interact with these treatments and make them less effective or even unsafe.
Some people who have premature ejaculation may not need medical treatment and may be able to overcome it without the need for a prescription.
Priligy can interact with some medications which include:
- Medications called MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors)
- SSRIs or SNRIs
- St John’s wort
- medications for epilepsy
- some other medications for anxiety, depression and psychosis
- Some antibiotics, antifungals and HIV treatments
- Some medications for heart conditions
You should make your doctor aware of any medications you are taking before they prescribe you Priligy.
Priligy should not be taken by people who are under the age of 18 or are female. You should also not drink alcohol when taking the medication.
The tablets should be taken with at least one full glass of water and swallowed whole to avoid their bitter taste. You should not drink grapefruit juice in the 24 hours before taking Priligy as this can increase the level of the medicine in your body. The tablets can be taken with or without food.
EMLA cream should not be used if you are allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, or other local anaesthetics. It can interact with some medications including:
- other local anaesthetics
- some antibiotics
- some antiepileptics
- medications used to treat a slow or irregular heartbeat
You should still tell your doctor about any medications you are taking before they prescribe you EMLA cream.
The cream should not be applied to skin that is cut or grazed or has eczema. You must be careful when applying the cream and make sure you do not get any in your eyes, nose, ears, mouth, or anus. Any excess cream should be wiped away before you have unprotected sex to prevent it from affecting your partner.
