What's the best drug treatment for premature ejaculation?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Antidepressants--specifically clomipramine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, and sertraline--are best and have been shown to improve symptoms of premature ejaculation (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials [RCTs]). The topical application of prilocaine-lidocaine cream (trade name EMLA) improves intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT), but penile numbness and loss of erection may occur (SOR: B, based on several small RCTs).
