No guy wants to admit it, but it happens to most of us. A wonderful evening in bed with your lovely lady gets ruined because you peak a little earlier than expected.


Premature ejaculation is what it’s called in the medicine world. An early end to your evening would be the layman’s term. For those that are chronic sufferers of premature ejaculation, PE for short, there is hope.

Or , may be you don’t suffer form “Premature ejaculation” and just want to elongate the time it takes for you to climax and finally shoot.

Whatever be the case, relax. Because, here in this article, I’ll be reviewing all those magic pills and sprays that are supposed to make you last longer in bed.

Prescription drugs – SSRI and PDE5 inhibitors

Prescription drugs like Dapoxetine and PDE5 inhibitors are effective solutions to last longer in bed, giving you more confidence and better ability to please your lady.

However, these products are only available by prescription, which means a doctor’s visit and they also come with side effects. Buying them online is not a good option as majority of pharmacies online are fakes and you never know what you are putting inside your body. Besides, with the advent of holistic medicine, there are more effective as well as safe natural solutions available for men.

Let’s first understand how the Prescription drugs work

Dapoxetine or Priligy is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor or SSRI.

It works within the brain to help you better control when you ejaculate during sex. Serotonin, produced in the brain, is supposed to be “reabsorbed” or “re-uptaken” into the brain once it has done its job. SSRIs prevent this from happening which increases the overall amount of serotonin in the brain.

Generally speaking, the more serotonin in brain means longer sex and delayed ejaculation, unless other factors are involved.

When the serotonin is being reabsorbed into the brain, it reacts with a part of your brain called the postsynaptic receptor. This reaction prevents a man from being able to control the whole ejaculation process, which is why a man might suffer from PE or ejaculate too soon.

Dapoxetine or Priligy delays the body’s tendency to ejaculate early so you can last longer in bed.

Serotonin increases the feeling of “satisfaction” and that is why SSRI drugs that increase the amount of serotonin in brain are used as “anti-depressants” because of their “calming effect”. It’s like when the body is already “calm”, it doesn’t require “ejaculation” to be more calm. Think a relaxed James Bond in bed.


Dapoxetine was also initially produced to be used an anti-depressant. However, depression itself can also be a side effect of PE or it can be a cause.

Along with the fact that the serotonin levels in your brain are less than usual, not being able to satisfy a woman can be pretty damaging to the male psyche.

PE or bad sex has been known to cause relationship problems and issues with personal distress. By increasing the level of serotonin the brain, you can also combat these depressive feelings.

Dapoxetine is great to use if you are looking for immediate results. It absorbs into the body quickly and only takes about four days of consistent use to reach maximum concentration in the blood stream. For other SSRIs it can take up to 22 months for a steady concentration in the plasma of the bloodstream.

For most SSRIs you have to be sure to take the pill every day to maintain the levels of it in your system; however Dapoxetine has shown to be effective when taken within three hours of being sexually active .

Another treatment for PE is PDE-5 inhibitors. These are pills like Viagra and Cialis. They work a bit differently than Dapoxetine. PDE-5 inhibitors work within the penis.

Erections are caused by a release of nitric oxide in the blood vessels of the body of the penis. This causes something called “cyclic guanosine monophosphate” or cGMP to accumulate in the blood vessels. Basically, it’s a substance that makes your blood vessels dilate.

PDE-5 is an enzyme that breaks down this cGMP, decreasing the effect of the nitric oxide which makes you ejaculate earlier than desired. By inhibiting the PDE-5, you are preventing the degradation of cGMP and nitric oxide and that allows you to last longer.

There are a couple different kinds of PDE-5 inhibitors on the market: sildenafil or Viagra, tadalafil or Cialis, vardenafil or Levitra and avanafil or Stendra. As a treatment for PE, the pill should be taken as needed and no more than once a day.

It is most effective when taken between thirty minutes to four hours before sexual activity. Sildenafil or Viagra is probably the most well known PDE-5 inhibitor drug on the market and will last for about 4 to 5 hours after you take it.

However, it only works with sexual stimulation. The pill won’t magically make you have an erection.

Side effects of Dapoxetine, SSIRs and PDE-5 inhibitors

Before you decide to buy dapoxetine online from some offshore pharmacy, you must realize there are side effects involved. Some side effects of Dapoxetine are nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, fatigue, insomnia, drowsiness, or cold-like symptoms. It can all depend on the dosage, so keep in touch with your doctor to be sure that you aren’t over or under doing it.

More serious side effects are also possible which include loss of libido(sex drive) or even impotence or erectile dysfunction.

It can have some serious effects on people with preexisting conditions. If you have ever had issues with heart failure, if you have a pacemaker or have had any other heart disease, you shouldn’t use Dapoxetine.

You should also be careful if you are taking any other medications. Some medicines have some pretty serious side effects and can a lot of problems when combined with Dapoxetine. Talk to your doctor first to be sure that this is the right product for you.

Likewise there are some side effects you have to keep your eye on when taking Viagra or any other PDE-5 inhibitor for that matter. There are a few things your doctor needs to know before prescribing it.

If you have preexisting conditions like heart disease, high or low blood pressure, a bleeding disorder, or recent history of a heart attack or stroke, you shouldn’t take Viagra or other PDE-5 inhibitors, or you may need a different dosing. Again, talk to your doctor first.

Viagra has been known to cause vision loss because it can decrease the blood flow to the optic nerve in your eye. It mostly occurs in people who have a history of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or a pre-existing eye problem. You may also experience a headache, upset stomach or diarrhea.

These are common side effects of the drug. The best thing you can do if you are experiencing serious side effects is stop taking the medicine and talk to your doctor .

Some people like me do not like the idea of pumping themselves full of synthetically made chemicals to try to solve their PE problems.

However, that is not the REAL problem.

Real problem – What Dapoxetine(Priligy) and PDE-5 inhibitors miss

One obvious issue with these prescription drugs is that they don’t cure “early ejaculation” for good and that means, one has to keep taking them and keep tackling with side effects. May be, there are even some long term harsher side effects involved, and that might be the reason why Dapoxetine is not even approved in the USA till now.

Dapoxetine and drugs like viagra(sildenafil citrate) have another catch besides the side effects. That they work only by one mechanism.

Dapoxetine works by inhibition of “serotonin reuptake” in the brain and PDE-5 inhibitors by increasing the effect of the nitric oxide.

According to the medical experts, it would be dangerous to mix the two drugs.

So, what if you want to get the effect of both the drugs simultaneously?

Another issue that most men have a REALLY hard time understanding, is the fact that “ejaculation” is a complex process governed by your “nervous system” and merely manipulating one or two chemicals in the brain and risking the side effects is not a good strategy.

“Serotonin reuptake” process is just one aspect of the “calmness” you would want in your erection. There are other neurotransmitters and chemicals involved to help keep your “calm erection”.

There might be other reasons why you ejaculate too early –

  • i). Your brain’s dopamine system might be messed up by watching too much porn or because of some other reason
  • ii). There might be some “unconscious” negative thoughts about your self esteem that are not resolved leading to anxiety and quick ejaculation
  • iii). Your dopamine-serotonin balance might be off. (Dopamaine is a “motivation hormone” and serotonin is a “relaxing” hormone). This balance governs how anxious excited are you OR how calm are you during sex. The perfect balance will help you last longer and delay ejaculation while also enjoying sex
  • iv). You might have trained your mind to ejaculate early by masturbating the wrong way
  • v). Some other unexplained or unnoticed reasons that can only come up with proper diagnosis

In my opinion, “premature ejaculation” or ejaculating too early might have variable reasons from an individual to individual and that is why it often happens, that a drug that works for someone might not work for someone else.

The best way to delay ejaculation and have longer lasting sex using a pill would be to go for a “multi-ingredient” pill that works by more than one mechanism.

Natural alternatives

For men, there is a more natural product on the market called Prosolution Plus. It uses natural herbs to help extend the duration of your erection and helps you release when you are ready.

A clinical trial of this “multi-ingredient” product has shown 64% improvement in premature ejaculation, a 67% improvement in the quality of your erection, a 48% improvement in your overall sexual function and a 78% improvement in satisfaction. Those are some pretty impressive numbers for an all natural product.

In fact, the study published in the American Journal of Therapeutics reveals the efficiency of ProSolution Plus formula. It uses traditional Chinese herbs to help improve your performance in bed.

The first ingredient is called tribulus terrestris which is a known aphrodisiac. It increases testosterone levels, thereby providing more strength to penis erection and increases the amount of pressure within the shaft. This gives you a longer lasting and more natural erection.

It also contains a compound called protodioscin which has been proven to improve male sexual function.

You’ll also find “withania somnifera” in ProSolution Plus which works by 2 mechanisms- “increasing nitric oxide” and helping you have a “calm erection”, decreasing anxiety which causes early ejaculation. There is a scientific study that proves that Ashwagandha or “withania somnifera” increases serotonin in the brain, thus in essence doing the job of Dapoxetine.

It increases nitric oxide in the penis, relaxing the shaft and increasing the amount of blood that can flow into it, similar to how PDE-5 inhibitors work. This results in a larger and longer erection.

It is also used as a mood stabilizer and to promote relaxation. Science now explains that the more relaxed you are in bed, the better the intercourse experience will be. One way the tantric sex or any meditative sex therapy works for curing quick ejaculation is by relaxing the nervous system and maintaining a dopamine-serotonin balance that is in favor of longer lasting erections.

Withania somnifera can also help in this mechanism. It even has natural benefits for the endocrine, cardiopulmonary and central nervous systems.

Another ingredient, “Asparagus adscendens” is used to help reduce inflammation and stress. It can help heighten feelings of lust, desire and provides overall natural yet “chemical” support to the orgasmic function. It is shown to inhibit proinflammatory cytokines, a known inflammatory and stress causing substance.

It contains potassium, fiber vitamins A, C, and B6, folic acid and thiamine, providing you with nutrients as well as bettering your orgasm. After some testing, it is believed that “asparagus adscendens” can also imitate the effects of testosterone in the body, improving ejaculation control and creating more powerful orgasms.

“Mucuna Pruriens” is a common drug used in natural male enhancement supplements these days. It is native to Africa and Asia and it increases dopamine levels in the brain which regulates your moods and feelings of pleasure.

It also increases your erections and increases the amount of time between sexual encounters. Not only can you go for longer, but you’ll be able to recover faster and have more sex.

I like “Mucuna Pruriens” very well, because it helped me with my depression symptoms.

In my opinion, the “Mucuna Pruriens” and “withania somnifera” combination can very well help you maintain a positive “dopamine-serotonin” balance in the brain resulting in balanced “libido-calmness” effect.

Asteracantha longifolia gives you more powerful orgasms and helps you control your ejaculations.

Curculigo orchioides are linked to increased sexual frequency, performance, and erection quality. It can also give you a little “liquid courage,” reducing anxiety, reducing your hesitation to engage in sexual activity in the first place. This is a fairly new substance that is undergoing some pretty extensive studies. It is believed to have other uses, helping combat other ailments that are linked to low sex drive and low sex performance.

Lastly, Prosolution Plus includes asphaltum or Shilajit. It is a mineral wax that is formed in rock cracks in the Himalayas. It contains more than 85 different vitamins and minerals. It is rich in antioxidants and is thought to stimulate your immune system as well as remedy sexual dysfunction and premature ejaculation. It is used in Ayurvedic medicine to increase vitality and sexual health, plus it helps you produce more sperm .

Some of these products have been studied for over 4,000 years by the Ayurvedic tradition within the Chinese culture. They are proven to work together to increase sex drive, control anxiety and excitement, delay ejaculation, increase sexual performance, and increase the frequency of which you are sexually active.

The pill is meant to be taken consistently; it isn’t a one-time use product like Viagra. You will experience results within 1 to 2 weeks; most people notice results within a day or two.

However it is meant to build up in your system for permanent results.

That means the best results are going show after 3 to 6 months of use. In comparison to Viagra and Priligy, Prosolution Plus is more of a commitment.

Like I mentioned before, the ingredients in Prosolution Plus are all natural and they have no known side effects. While you should still keep up with a doctor to be sure you are taking the right dosage and to be sure that your insides are still functioning properly while taking Prosolution Plus, you can feel confident in the fact that this is a great product that has no harmful side effects or synthetic chemicals going into your body.

Everyone reacts differently to medication, though, so definitely talk to a doctor.

The Bottom Line – Recommended product

The last thing anyone wants is for a guy to cut the night short by getting off too early. With so many different products on the market these days, premature ejaculation does not need to be a problem. Different products to different products to fix the problem, but the goal for the end result is the same: to keep help you last longer and improve the quality of your sex life.

The pills mentioned in this article prevent the problem neurologically, working with different neurotransmitters in the brain, stimulate, or not stimulate different substances to help you last longer and better control when you ejaculate.

PDE-5 inhibitors work directly in the penis to increase blood flow, giving you a harder erection and managing the amount of nitric oxide in your penis to keep you from finishing too soon.

The pills like Dapoxetine, Viagra and Prosolution Plus are proven to help improve the quality of you sex life and delay ejaculation. As you can see, there are a lot of different options out there.

For those like me that are opposed to pumping a ton of side effects loaded chemicals into your system, and want a pill that works efficiently, curing ejaculation problem for good, by influencing different mechanisms of “delaying ejaculation” like increasing serotonin and testosterone, maintaining serotonin-dopamine balance , alleviating anxiety, increasing nitric oxide, helping in having a “calm erection”, the best option is the natural product on the market called Prosolution Plus that uses all natural ingredients that have been studied by ancient Indian and Chinese groups for thousands of years.
