What is Peroxetin?
A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, or SSRI, is paroxetine, which is occasionally marketed under the name Paxil. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given it the go-ahead to treat posttraumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and major depressive disorder (PTSD). Being that it is a prescription medication, you must first consult a doctor in order to obtain it.
The most common form of paroxetine is a tablet, and it can take some time for an effective level to be reached.
Premature ejaculation treatment is one of paroxetine’s many off-label uses. (Other off-label uses include treating chronic headaches and diabetes-related tingling in the hands and feet.)
“Off-label” refers to a drug’s use that has general scientific support but is not FDA-explicitly authorized in a given situation.
It’s well known that one of the most typical Paxil side effects is ejaculation issues, or that the drug results in delayed ejaculation, which refers to premature ejaculation.
This might annoy men who don’t have problems with early ejaculation. However, this sexual side effect can be a blessing for men who are trying to find a cure for finishing too quickly. Among several SSRIs, paroxetine seems to provide the most significant ejaculation delay, making it a relatively common choice in the treatment of premature ejaculation.
In fact, research indicates paroxetine can increase the time to ejaculation by 8.8 times over baseline, and as soon as within five to 10 days of beginning treatment.
So now we are aware that paroxetine can alter ejaculation.
But what negative effects are there?
Paxil side effects can occur depending on your dosage, but when used to treat ejaculation issues, paroxetine’s most frequent side effects are headache, nausea, dizziness, disturbed sleep, fatigue, dry mouth, yawning, and constipation.
According to scientific literature, most patients experience these side effects for 2 to 3 weeks after starting treatment before they go away.
Erectile dysfunction occurs less frequently, and for men looking for assistance with sexual function, this may be a clear indication to stop taking paroxetine.
Men who take paroxetine for early ejaculation may also have trouble adhering to their treatment plan due to relationship problems, side effects, or just a general aversion to taking medication linked to mental illness.
While there is a stigma associated with taking medication for depression, seeking medical attention for physical or mental health problems shouldn’t be accompanied by embarrassment or shame.
Like with any prescription medication regimen, if you experience side effects that make taking the medication uncomfortable or unsustainable, seek medical attention before completely discontinuing treatment.
Your medical provider might be able to lower your dosage or suggest other strategies to help you reduce Paxil side effects.
Pfizer first developed Viagra in 1989 as a high blood pressure medication. This medicine became available in the US in 1998 as an ED treatment, even though it was shown to be ineffective for the treatment of high blood pressure. Since then, it has been often recommended.
In 2017, cheaper versions of the brand-name drug, generic sildenafil, were made accessible. Our medical staff can provide you with both generic sildenafil and Viagra, so no matter what medications you require, we have you covered.
Blood flow in penis is increased with Viagra (sildenafil). Both men who have trouble getting and keeping an erection can benefit from this medication. This medication for erectile dysfunction may be the correct choice for you.
Alternatives to Paroxetine
For the treatment of premature ejaculation, there are a few additional options.
Creams applied topically can lessen sensitivity by numbing the penis. According to research, one of these anesthetics, lidocaine, can “significantly” lengthen the time to climax. Another form of lidocaine is a spray that is quickly absorbed.
Tramadol, used to treat premature ejaculation, is an addictive opiate. This indicates that even though it can help treat PE, it isn’t frequently employed.
Tramadol also has additional side effects like nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, and dizziness.
Inhibitors of PDE-5
Inhibitors of phosphodiesterase type 5 are frequently prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction. In cases where men have “conditioned themselves to ejaculate rapidly,” there is some evidence to suggest that they may help prevent premature ejaculation.
What to Know About the Side Effects of Paroxetine?
We can safely say that all prescription medications carry the possibility of side effects. Paroxetine is an off-label treatment for premature ejaculation due to one of its more prevalent side effects, delayed ejaculation.
Other possible side effects of paroxetine include headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and sleep disturbances, but it is thought that these will pass once you become accustomed to the drug.
