• Oral medication
  • Helps increase the ejaculatory latency time (ELT)
  • Long-term treatment efficacy and tolerability

Paroxetine (Paxil) is a type of medication known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI).  Multiple clinical studies have shown that it has helped many men delay ejaculation for many minutes and it is commonly prescribed for this purpose. Of the SSRIs approved in the United States for PE, paroxetine seems to be the most effective. This medication usually takes 5 -10 days to begin working. But it could take 2-3 weeks of treatment before some men feel the full effect.  

According to a study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, paroxetine “appears to be a useful and reasonably well tolerated oral treatment for premature ejaculation with improved ejaculatory control usually occurring within 1 ± 2 weeks and subsequently increased frequency of intercourse. On-demand administration of paroxetine improves ejaculatory control but appears more efficacious after initial chronic dosing.”


However, like any treatment, a man is considering, this solution for premature ejaculation (PE) may not be for everyone. Every individual has a different bill of health and is suffering from premature ejaculation for different reasons. Thus, it is advisable to make an appointment with a sexual wellness specialist, such as Balanced Medical Solutions, to find out what treatments options are available and if paroxetine is the right choice for you.
