Fortacin in a Nutshell
“Fortacin is one of the most effective drugs available to help men with premature ejaculation to last longer. It has proven effective in helping men to last up to 5 times longer and is easy to apply.”
- Dr. Diana Gall, GMC No. 7685129
How does Fortacin work?
Fortacin is a revolutionary and effective premature ejaculation treatment, also known as “delay spray”. Other treatments that contain topical anaesthetics are available, but Fortacin is the first of its kind to be licenced for treatment of this particular sexual health condition.
Fortacin is capable of preventing premature ejaculation from occurring by decreasing the sensitivity of the head of the penis.
How effective is Fortacin spray in treating premature ejaculation?
Patients that used Fortacin showed an overwhelming improvement of premature ejaculation in clinical trials.
It appeals to many men due to the fact that it works within 5 minutes of using it thanks to the lidocaine and prilocaine anaesthetics.
What are the active ingredients?
Fortacin contains two topical local anaesthetics, lidocaine and prilocaine, which work together to reduce the sensation in the head of the penis, helping you to last longer in bed.
This reduction of sensation makes it easier for men to control when they ejaculate, as their penis isn’t as sensitive.
What’s the recommended dosage?
The recommended dose when using Fortacin is equal to three sprays, and you can take up to three doses in 24 hours (with at least 4 hours between each dose).
It is possible that you can overdose with Fortacin, but it’s unlikely. However, if you use too much, there are some signals that might warn you of an overdose. These include:
Tingling of skin around the mouth
Ringing in ears
Reduced oxygen in blood
Low blood pressure
Stopped or slowed breathing
Altered heart beat
Some of these symptoms could potentially be life threatening, so please seek urgent help if you experience any of the above.
How is it applied?
As with similar premature ejaculation treatments or “delay sprays”, Fortacin should be primed before the first use. You can do this by shaking the bottle and then spraying it three times in the air (make sure you aim it away from your face).
After this, you should retract the foreskin from the head of the penis and apply three sprays to the tip. Then wait 5 minutes, and then wipe off any residue before you have sex. The spray should be primed before each use, but after the initial priming, it should only be sprayed into the air once before applying it to your penis.
What are the side effects of Fortacin?
Fortacin premature ejaculation treatment can potentially cause side effects, as is the case with any other medicine, but not all patients will notice any. Ultimately, most find that the benefits of the spray outweigh the symptoms associated with it. Some of the most common reported side effects include the following:
Reduced feeling in/around penis
Burning feeling in/around penis
Throat irritation (if inhaled)
Redness on/around penis
Failure to ejaculate
Tingling in/around penis
Pain/discomfort in/around penis
Itching in/around penis
A high temperature
As Fortacin can also affect your partner, they may also experience some side effects. According to the patient information leaflet (PIL), the side effects that female partners commonly experience are:
- A burning feeling in and around the vagina
- Reduced feeling in and around the vagina
- Local irritation of the throat (if inhaled/swallowed)
- Vaginal thrush
- Discomfort in anus and rectum
- Loss of feeling in the mouth
- Difficulty or pain passing urine
- Pain in the vagina
- Discomfort or itching in the vagina and vulva
It’s important to know that the loss of sensation in your penis may put you at greater risk of sexual injury, so both you and your partner should take extra care during intercourse to make sure you stay safe. Most of the side effects mentioned above are fairly normal, but if any of them concern you, stop using Fortacin, wash the affected areas thoroughly, and contact your GP for advice.
Can I use Fortacin?
If you struggle with premature ejaculation and are looking for a treatment, delay sprays like Fortacin are often a great option due to their speed and efficiency. However, it’s important to remember that it’s still a medication that contains local anaesthetics, so there are some people that should consult with their own GP before ordering to make sure it’s safe for them to use.
It’s also important to remember that Fortacin might affect your sexual partner/s, so if either of you struggle with the following conditions or medical problems, you should talk to your own GP before ordering through Doctor-4-U:
- Allergic to lidocaine or prilocaine
- Allergic to other, similar local anaesthetics
- Diagnosed with a genetic disorder or other condition that affects the red blood cells
- History of medicine sensitivities
- Severe liver problems
Whilst Fortacin premature ejaculation spray can make your sex life much easier, it’s important that it doesn’t affect other aspects of your health, so if you have any concerns at all, please talk to a doctor or pharmacist before trying it.
Does Fortacin interact with any other medicines?
Fortacin can interact with quite a few other medicines, despite it being a topical local anaesthetic. Some of the most common interactions include:
An interaction means that one medicine might be affected by the other, causing either an increased risk of side effects, or one drug to be less effective if used in conjunction with the other. To find out how you might be affected by potential interactions, speak to your local pharmacist for advice. There are also some medicines that might increase the risk of methaemoglobinaemia (a reduction of oxygen in the blood) if they’re used alongside Fortacin, and these include:
If you aren’t sure whether you’re taking any of the above medicines, some of the conditions that they’re used to treat will be listed below. If you’re concerned that some of your medicines might interact with Fortacin, your local pharmacist should be able to advise you. The medicines can be used for treatment of the following:
- Nausea and vomiting
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure
- Kidney and urinary infections
- Chron’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Can I use condoms with Fortacin?
This is a good question and the answer depends mainly on what type of condoms you have. Some condoms and barrier contraceptives made of polyurethane might be affected by the spray, and could deteriorate whilst using them, making them less effective.
If you want to wear a condom whilst using Fortacin, you should check the ingredients and base of each brand to decide which one is best for you. The PIL only states that polyurethane-based condoms may be affected, so others should be safe to use.
Can I still get my partner pregnant if I use Fortacin?
There might be some evidence that the use of Fortacin could reduce the chances of conception, so if you’re wanting to try for a baby, you should either avoid using Fortacin, or wash your penis thoroughly 5 minutes after application but before you have sex.
These steps should make sure that there’s enough anaesthetic on your penis to provide effective treatment for premature ejaculation, whilst also ensuring that no there’s minimal residue that could hinder conception. However, despite the fact it may hinder conception, Fortacin should not be used as a contraceptive.
