What is Cipramil?
Cipramil is a type of drug called a selective serotonin reuptake-inhibitor (SSRI). It’s often used long-term for depression and anxiety, but you can also take it to help with premature ejaculation. Cipramil gives you more control, helping you to last as long as you want to. It’s a tablet that you take everyday.
We know Cipramil works for premature ejaculation, but it’s an off-label treatment right now. That means a licensed clinician will need to make sure it’s the right choice before they prescribe it to you. It might be a good fit if other treatments for premature ejaculation haven’t worked, or if they just don’t suit you. If you chat with us, we can walk you through it.
How does Cipramil work?
Cipramil contains the active ingredient citalopram, a type of SSRI. It’s not completely clear how SSRIs work for premature ejaculation, but it’s thought to be due to the serotonin neurotransmitter. SSRIs like Cipramil stop the reuptake of this transmitter.
This increases your serotonin levels and makes it more active in your central nervous system, which may give you greater control over your ejaculation. So, Cipramil can lead to delayed ejaculation, making it helpful for men who experience orgasming quickly.
What doses of Cipramil are there?
Cipramil comes in 10mg and 20mg doses. For premature ejaculation, evidence shows that 20mg works best. Take it at around the same time everyday. Your clinician can let you know more about the right dose for you. If you chat to us about your health, we can give you the advice you need.
