Could Parkinson’s Medications be Linked to Premature Ejaculation?

Could Parkinson’s Medications be Linked to Premature Ejaculation? Men who take medications for Parkinson’s disease might develop premature ejaculation (PE), according to a June 2018 study.

PE occurs when a man climaxes before he wishes to. He may feel like he has no control over when he ejaculates. The situation can be frustrating for both members of a couple.

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological movement disorder that occurs when nerve cells do not produce adequate amounts of a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Symptoms include tremors, stiffness, and poor balance.

Sexual dysfunction is a common problem for men with Parkinson’s, affecting an estimated 41% to 52% of men.

For the study, researchers described the cases of eight men with Parkinson’s who sought help for PE from a sex therapy clinic. The men’s average age was 63 years.
