I've read that a new drug was launched in USA in May 2005 called dapoxetine that will assist with P.E. Do you have any info on this and if effective when will it be available in SA ?

Have you any comments on use of O-rings for P.E. ?

Dear Steve
Dapoxetine, a new antidepressant, has been found to be safe and effective for the treatment of premature ejaculation, according to two major clinical trials. Dapoxetin is a short-acting selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It has to be approved by the MCC before it will be available in SA. One would have to find out from the company itself

In South Africa this may be managed by Johnson&Johnson

What O rings do is to keep the blood longer in the penis, but there are definitely more comfortable treatments for this!! Rather speak to a urologist or see someone at a men's health clinic - they specialize in PE
