What is Fortacin?
Fortacin is a revolutionary and effective premature ejaculation treatment, also known as “delay spray” along with some other medicines such as stud 100. Fortacin contains two topical local anaesthetics, lidocaine and prilocaine, which work together to reduce the sensation in the head of the penis before sexual intercourse.
This reduction of sensation makes it easier for men to control when they ejaculate as their penis isn’t as sensitive.
Premature ejaculation is more common than most would think, and it can have a wide range of causes, including:
- • Prostate problems
- • Thyroid issues
- • The use of recreational drugs
- • Depression
- • Stress
- • Issues in the relationship
- • Sexual performance anxiety
Unfortunately, with the psychological factors that might contribute to the condition, it can be a vicious cycle, so using a medicine like Fortacin as a premature ejaculation treatment might also help to relieve these causes.
Can I use Fortacin?
If you struggle with premature ejaculation and are looking for a treatment, delay sprays such as 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, so if either of you struggle with the following conditions or medical problems, you should talk to your own GP before ordering through Doctor4U:
- • 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 treatment 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 medicines, despite it being a topical local anaesthetic. Some of the most common interactions include:
- • Other local anaesthetics
- • Heart medicines
- • Medicines for high blood pressure
- • Medicines to reduce stomach acid
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, ask 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:
- • Benzocaine

What are the side effects of Fortacin?
Like most medications, Fortacin premature ejaculation treatment does carry a risk of side effects, though most find that the benefits of the spray outweigh the symptoms associated with it. Some of the most commonly reported side effects include:
- • The inability to develop or maintain an erection
- • Reduced feeling in or around the penis
- • Feeling of burning in and around the penis
- • Headache
- • Local irritation of throat (if inhaled)
- • Irritation of the skin
- • Redness on and around the penis
- • Failure to ejaculate during sexual intercourse
- • Abnormal orgasm
- • Tingling in or around the penis
- • Pain or discomfort in or around the penis
- • Itching in or around the 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 experienced are:
- • A burning feeling in and around the vagina
- • Reduced feeling in and around the vagina
- • Headache
- • 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 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 you overdose with Fortacin?
It’s possible, but unlikely. Each dose is equal to three sprays, and you can take up to 3 doses in 24 hours (with at least 4 hours between each dose). However, if you use too much, there are some signals that might warn you of an overdose. These include:
- • Light-headedness
- • Dizziness
- • Tingling of skin around the mouth
- • Numb tongue
- • Abnormal taste
- • Blurred vision
- • Ringing in ears
- • Methaemoglobinaemia (reduction if oxygen in the blood)
- • Fits
- • Low blood pressure
- • Slowed or stopped 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 do you use Fortacin?
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. 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.
Can I use condoms with Fortacin?
Good question. 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. This 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.
