Premature ejaculatio: Most ssris are worth a try, such as lexapro, celexa, viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) or prozac.

Sexual Dysfunction : The mainstay of medical treatment for premature ejaculation has been ssri type antidepressants. Paxil (paroxetine) 10-20mg is most often used. It can be taken about an hour before sex or or on a daily basis. It stays in your system for a few days and can have other side effects as a result. Watch for a new drug (dapoxetine) by johnson&johnson this year. It will be just for premature ejaculation.
