Premature Ejaculation Pills

Premature Ejaculation Pills

Should You Take Pills for Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a frustrating condition where men aren’t able to control how long they can have sex before ejaculating. It’s incredibly common — PE affects about 30% of men worldwide — but it can be an embarrassing condition to live with.

Depending on the severity of your PE, it’s natural to feel desperate for a cure — maybe even willing to try just about anything to curb your premature ejaculation. And there are a number of products out there claiming to be the cure to what ails you!

But beware: Even though there are pills out there claiming to cure or reduce PE, this form of treatment does not come without its own set of caveats. We dive deeper into the types of premature ejaculation pills below.

Pros and Cons of Premature Ejaculation Pills

There’s a host of pros and cons to taking pills to treat premature ejaculation.

One of the biggest pros may simply be the feeling of control a man has when he can take something to last longer and enjoy sex on a regular basis. Here are a few other benefits to using pills for PE:

  • Supplements and prescriptions covered by insurance are often reasonably priced

  • Herbal supplements are easy to get without a prescription

  • An easy-to-swallow pill is a simple daily routine

  • Pills create less mess than applying a spray, gel or cream that needs to be rubbed in

There are also some cons to using a pill for treatment:

  • You may need a prescription from your doctor

  • Herbal supplements can be questionable in terms of safety and efficacy

  • Some pills need to be taken up to three hours prior to intercourse — which means you’ll need to plan sex

  • Many prescription drugs and some supplements have long lists of side effects

  • The FDA has issued safety warnings for some herbal alternatives

Pills for premature ejaculation take many forms — as you’ll see below — and you shouldn’t start or change any pharmaceutical regimen before consulting with your doctor. Be sure to pay close attention to the drug interactions and potential side effects of any vitamin or prescription you’re thinking of taking.

Herbal Pills for Premature Ejaculation

Herbal supplements for PE are typically labeled as being a solution for sexual stamina, a term that can mean very different things to different people.

In an analysis of herbal premature ejaculation pills on the market, two things stand out:

  • Each brand has a different combination of ingredients

  • Each brand makes outrageous claims about its effectiveness — and sometimes even providing warnings against competing products

Herbal medicines have been around for thousands of years. Logically, it would make sense that if an herb or combination of herbs was truly effective in allowing men to have longer-lasting sex, this would be one of the most popular herbs known to mankind.

The fact that there is very little overlap in key ingredients in the commonly advertised herbal sexual enhancement pills makes it more probable that none of these pills actually work. Let's take a closer look at two ingredients that are common in more than one product.

L-arginine

L-arginine is an amino acid found in meat, fish and poultry. In the body, L-arginine is converted to nitric oxide, a molecule that’s used to control blood flow. PDE-5 drugs such as Cialis and Viagra indirectly elevate nitric oxide in order to increase blood flow to the penis to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). And while some studies have shown ED improvement in men taking L-arginine, no such positive results for premature ejaculation have been found.

L-arginine is also a common ingredient in many penile enhancement pills. In recent years, the FDA has banned or issued safety warnings against many of these pills and their manufacturers for illegally tainting their "natural" supplements with sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, or other PDE-5 inhibitors in order to deliver better results.

In fact, this practice is so common that we can probably conclude that L-arginine likely doesn’t have much, if any, efficacy as an FDA-approved premature ejaculation medication.

However, it’s been proven to improve blood flow and circulation in both men and women — that’s why it’s a key ingredient in our VItaFLUX nutritional supplement.

St. John’s Wort

St. John’s wort is an herb used in many supplements. It’s said to treat a variety ailments, including depression and menopause symptoms.

St. John’s wort is found in some herbal products claiming to be effective in treating PE. At least two studies have concluded that it’s a potentially promising treatment, including a 2010 study of 50 men with PE and a 2005 study that isolated the vas deferens of rat and human subjects.

But this herb has been medicinally used since the time of ancient Greece — if it were truly effective in treating PE, wouldn’t folks have been shouting it from the top of Mount Olympus? The same could be said for a long list of other herbs used in herbal treatments claiming to help men with PE.

Prescription medications for premature ejaculation

There are two prescription pills with clinical data indicating effectiveness for premature ejaculation.

Dapoxetine

Dapoxetine is an SSRI indicated for premature ejaculation. It is the only prescription drug specifically manufactured to treat PE, however, it has not been approved by the FDA - it’s currently not available in the USA. When taken about three hours before sexual activity, on an as-needed basis, studies have shown that dapoxetine can increase the time it takes for a man to orgasm.

However, a 2017 study on long-term use of dapoxetine found that more than 80 percent of men had stopped taking the drug by the six-month mark, citing the high cost and side effects related to taking the drug.

Tramadol

Tramadol is a strong synthetic opioid analgesic that’s indicated to treat pain, but it is prescribed off-label to treat premature ejaculation.

While it isn’t entirely clear how it works to delay ejaculation, it’s generally accepted that a combination of effects is coming into play. In short, Tramadol may be acting in the same way an SSRI does: by numbing the entire nervous system to stimuli.

In spite of some clinical success, Tramadol is falling out of favor, as new topical treatments emerge with lower side-effect profiles. Many men seem to prefer topical sprays and gels over a pill.
