Simply fill in a brief questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order and prescribe a suitable treatment. How to Order

If you have been experiencing problems with premature ejaculation, our online service at ZAVA can provide confidential advice and treatment. We offer two options that could help to give you more control, Priligy tablets and EMLA cream.

Simply complete our brief medical questionnaire, and a ZAVA doctor will then check to see if the treatment is right for you. They will then issue your prescription to a local pharmacy in Ireland, or you can choose to have your medication delivered directly to your door.

It is also worth considering our erectile dysfunction treatment service. Sometimes erectile dysfunction can cause premature ejaculation as well, so if you are experiencing both, it might be best to think about treating your erectile dysfunction first.

A consultation for premature ejaculation prescription costs €21.50.

Priligy tablets

Priligy is a tablet used to treat premature ejaculation. You need to take it one hour before having sex and its effects last for around three hours.

How they work

Priligy tablets contain the active ingredient dapoxetine. It takes 1 - 3 hours to work.

Side effects

Possible side effects include dry mouth, headache, dizziness and nausea.


In rare cases, Priligy can result in fits or seizures, low blood pressure, changes in mood or suicidal thoughts. Stop taking Priligy straight away if you experience any of these adverse effects.

EMLA cream

EMLA is a local anaesthetic cream that numbs the skin. It helps to reduce the sensation at the tip of the penis and delays ejaculation. It needs to be applied 20-30 minutes before sex.

How it works

EMLA cream contains lidocaine and prilocaine. It works within 15 minutes.

Side effects

Possible side effects include redness, mild swelling and pale discoloration where the cream is applied.


If you have an allergic reaction to EMLA stop using the cream and consult a doctor.
