What is the best ssri used to treat premature eJacuLation paroxetine isno good for me?
Premature ejaculation is also sometimes treated with fluoxetine, although it is not approved for this use. This is known as an "off-label" use (In the US, the Food and Drug Administration FDA approves medications for specific uses. If a medication is used for any other use other than the approved uses, this is considered an "off-label" use).
As with other similar antidepressants, fluoxetine is known to cause sexual side effects, including delayed ejaculation. While these sexual side effects are usually undesired, in the case of men with premature ejaculation, the sexual side effects can help to delay their ejaculation.
