Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

My doctor has prescribed be with AROPAX 20 mg (It is same as paxil but sold under this name here in Australia). The reason for the prescription is because to cure Pre-Mature Ejaculation (PE) . But I am apprehensive to try this medicine due to the various reports I read about the side effects and the associated symptoms on its with drawl.

My doctor was telling that there is an another alternative to using Aropax, which is an SSRI by name Tricyclic Antidepressents Clomipramine. But he was saying that it is an old medicine and Aropax is a better one among the two.

Can I ask of any one here have tried either AROPAX or CLOMIPRAMINE for treating PE and does it really work ?. And how effective is each medicine for treating PE ? Any insights to this will be highly appreciated

Thanks

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

Aropax(Paxil) for premature ejaculation...NOW I've heard it all. Yup, it will take care of it....It will remove your sex drive completely. One of the most common side effects of Paxil in males is the loss of sex drive and the ability to ejaculate. This is NOT a drug you want to take for that diagnosis.

I'm now convinced..doctors have completely lost their minds!!!

Now as for the other, Anafranil here in the states. Read this page of side effects:
http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/clomipr_ad.htm
I don't know anyone on this drug. It is rarely used due to the horrendous side effect profile. It is a VERY old drug.

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

Someone on this board has a link to another board specifically addressing the problems that Paxil has caused for men. I'm sure they'll post it for you. Get the scoop from those that have been there.

Thanks for your comments on these two drugs for treating PE. As I can see boththese drugs have numerous side effects than the benefit they promise to give.

is there any one who has tried either of these drugs for this perticular issue and what is their view on this?

Thanks once again

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

I advise you to PM a member here named LossLeader. He has written numerous times in detail about his experiences with sexual dysfunction and SSRIs and has spent a great deal of time learning. He also knows the html of the men's boards that focus on these issues. He would be a great resource for you.

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

Let me tell you about this.. Paxil made it so I couldn't ***!!! then I went off it so I could have a nrmal sex life and kazzam I could *** so well I did it twice in 2 minutes once.... DO NOT take this drug it will not help yopur problem and will make it worse in the long run.

I know you've heard this before but if you really want to cure PE.. meditation my friend is the cure.. I went from the 2 pump chump to lasting as long as I want or as long as she want is more like it through dedicated 30 minute meditation everyday. Meditation can be tricky though people think you need to breathe as deep and slow as you can but that's BS.. if you breathe in for four seconds and out for six you will achieve the best relaxation as breathing in for a deeper breathe actually makes your heart rate increase on the in breath above what it will decrease on the out breath. I learned this gong through biofeedback training and being hooked up to these monitors of heart rate sweating etc..

Good luck it is a real pain in the *** PE I know but drugs are not the solution, not Paxil or a benzo or anything else they end up causing worse sexual side effects in the end.

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

Paxil actually retards ejeculation, no doubt about it, but this effect lasts only for a few months then this fades away, at least it happended that way for me. BUT much more important, your sex drive, your libido goes completely away so you simply dont want to have sex any more !! Talk of a remedy! Also, in my case, my sex sensibility was replaced by a nubness so not only was my brain and soul numbed but also my senses. Actually this is one of the main reasons while i decided to quit this stuff. MAn, I know that PE is a problem but there are many other ways to deal with it than paxil. What your doctor proposed is like treating a headache by chopping your head off!.

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

i was put on the clomiramine for 3 days back in 1998,that was when the **** hit the fan and got me on seroxat.I reacted very very badly to it,i was climbing walls with akathesia,at this time i didnt even know what i was taking my doctor had given me it for a couple of dizzy does !!!!!!!,i now know it is one of the worst drugs for causing akathesia,had my doc picked up on what was going on with me i wouldnt be where i am today,my advice,stay off all those kinds of meds but this one is a big big no no

Re: Paxil or Clomipramine for treating Pre-Mature Ejaculation

I would seriously consider getting a new doctor...
I have never heard anything as ridiculous as prescribing it for premature ejaculation... If i were you i would go back to him and grill him on why he would suggest you take a defective and dengerous psychiatric medication for PE... Maybe he is getting kick backs from GSK?....

Actually, hyper sexuality when first starting Paxil is not uncommon. I had absolutely no sexual side effect and in fact, lost weight when I first started the drug.

Six months later....different story.

Good luck.
