In addition to behavioral tips, there are several medication options that your doctor may recommend, depending on your unique health situation. These include the most effective treatments recommended by the American Urological Association.

The simplest effective treatment is usually the best choice, so your provider will try to prescribe the medication that is most likely to work well for you. Based on your feedback, however, your management may change over time by switching to another medication choice or using a combination of agents. Some men use oral medication and apply a topical anesthetic that they then cover with a condom. They get the sensations they want, experience the prolonged pleasure of the extended sexual experience, and orgasm at a time both they and a partner find satisfying. For other men, such a combination is overkill. That is why your personal experience is so important.
