What are the off label uses for lexapro (escitalopram)? Is premature ejaculation included? Does lexapro (escitalopram) have many sexual side effects like genital anesthesia?

In brief: See below

Premature ejaculation (PE) is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions in men with prevalence rates ranging from 21–31%.
Lexapro (escitalopram) is in the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which have been shown to be effective in "some" men with PE. Higher doses of SSRIs "may" be associated with loss of libido and/or ED. Lexapro starting dose for PE 10 mg.
