Zoloft?

I just got samples from my doctor today to help with my stamina issues. He said in some men, it decreasses sexual desire... but in some it helps prolong stamina and helps PE.

Anyone have any history using this drug for these reasons?

THX!

Thumbs up Re: Zoloft?

Hello Your Doctor has a great sense of humor.....What about saying, "in some men hair will grow on their head, or hair will ungrow on their head, or muscles will grow on their feet, or an extra ear will grow on their chin, or it will produce riches for you in 4 weeks time".
Zoloft is used specifically for Depression. It is classified as an Anti-depressive medication.

Re: Zoloft?

Zoloft does have a side effect of prolonged ejaculation, however, in addition to decreased sexual desire. So your doctor may be using Zoloft as an off-label use, but he is entitled to do that.

If I were you, I would try some physical techniques to help with the PE.... have intercourse, or whatever, until you feel as though you are going to ejaculate and then stop, squeeze the base of your penis until the feeling subsides and then work yourself up again and repeat the process. You can also wear one or two condoms to lessen the sensitivity, or use a product called Maintain, which has an ingredient that makes you a little numb. It takes patience, but you are training yourself to go longer without relying on a drug that may or may not work, as the above poster pointed out... it's not intended for this purpose.

Good Luck. Let us know how it works for you.

Regards,
CancerDad

Re: Zoloft?

Thanks for the replies... I know it is an Anti-depressive, but he said one of the things it does is help men with PE, so it's why he wanted me to try it. I've tried the numbing cream, condoms (the extended pleasure ones) but neither worked.

I'm just really down on this because like I said, I could go as long as I needed. Now, I try to think about other things, go slow... even stop... but I'm only going a minute or so, if that. Thankfully I'm good at other things so she gets to enjoy herself.

Re: Zoloft?

first, I'd say beware of magic bullets.
second, when I was taking zoloft, I was unable to reach orgasm. close, very close, but no cigar. needless to say, that didn't last long.

Re: Zoloft?

tommy124, thanks for the reply. My problem is, I'm only lasting a minute or two, at best where I used to be able to last a loooooong time.

How long did this take to work on you? I mean, could I take it the day of?

THX!

Re: Zoloft?

You're missing my point. I couldn't come at all. I stopped taking it, and gradually got better. There is no magic bullet, there is only learning how to train your body to do what you want it to.
