Why You Shouldn’t Use Antidepressants to Cure Premature Ejaculation

It was not too terribly long ago that one of the primary cures for premature ejaculation was the taking of something like Prozac. In fact, if you look around a little, you will still see this as an option for men struggling with this form of sexual dysfunction. Although effective-sometimes-in getting rid of the problem, antidepressants have other problems which makes them far from your best choice when it comes to lasting longer in bed.


Antidepressants work to delay ejaculation primarily by delaying the ejaculation reflex. This works because these medications are part of the serotonin reuptake inhibitors group (SSRIs). They increase the levels of serotonin in the brain, in other words which allows a man to last longer in bed. Sounds good so far, especially since the results are often comparable to surgical results but without the expensive and painful surgery!

However, antidepressants have their problems, particularly Prozac. Prozac (flouxetine) has been long prescribed as a way to get rid of premature ejaculation; however, some side effects include sexual dysfunction, loss of libido and impotency-the exact opposite of what you want! Other side effects of other SSRIs include mouth dryness, unreasonable tranquility (you’re just feeling too good to bother with much of anything), nausea and other problems. Some effects can be avoided if you take the pill two hours before having sex, but other side effects may occur anyway. Furthermore, over the long run, antidepressants often cause sexual problems anyway and you’re back to square one, possibly in a worse situation.

Antidepressants are definitely not the best way to go when it comes to figuring out how best to cure premature ejaculation. Although they can work in the short term, over the long run they are at best a way to delay actually dealing with the problem and at worst, going to cause more problems than solve. Instead of bothering with them, try different methods.

Good ways to last longer in bed include:

  • Learning the stop and start method
  • Letting your partner on top
  • Visualization (thinking of something other than your orgasm)
  • Using a natural product like Gambir Sarawak
  • Kegels

Although these methods will all take longer, they will also stick far better than SSRIs will. More time and effort into solving any problem means that the problem will stay solved and it’s no different from premature ejaculation. So don’t rely on drugs to deal with the problem; find a solution on your own and stick with it! You’ll have far greater success.
