premature ejaculation with Flouxetine: An open label study
Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common problem in the male sexual dysfunction. Behavioral therapy had been used for many years to treat PE. In recent years many studies have indicated the beneficial effects of medications in the management of PE.
Using only medication for treatment of PE.
In this open-label study 16 patients with PE attending my private clinic were treated with flouxtine 20 mg/ day in a single morning oral dose for one month.
The response was dramatic, as 31% of patients improved within the first week, and 75% of patients improved within the second week, while all the patients (100%). improved at one month.
Flouxetine could be used for treatment of PE . Further studies are essential to prove whether patients get cured.
