(Newser) – The wait is over for British men who want a pill that should help them last a lot longer. Priligy, a drug designed to prevent premature ejaculation, launched in the country this week, reports the Daily Mail. When taken 1 to 3 hours before sex, the pill has been shown to help the men who suffer from the condition last three times as long.

By adjusting serotonin levels in the brain, Priligy gives men more control over when they climax—and that increased control can last up to 24 hours, a detail that might make the price tag easier to justify: The drug goes for about $40 per pill.

This is ridiculous, 40$ a pill? First it's viagra with $17 a pill and now this... they're out their minds. For anyone who is remotely thinking about this DO NOT DO IT. What happens in 3 months/years when you find out all the side effects. I recommend STAIHARD as a owner of two myself - absolutely no side effects and it'll only take a couple of these pills to own the damn thing forever. / seriously, no side effects, i am 56 and can go for a while without taking breaks because STAIHARD allows me to.
