How does Sertraline work?
Presently, there aren’t any medications specifically approved by the FDA to treat PE.

SSRIs are prescription medication, meaning you’ll need to speak with a physician about this PE treatment method. Physicians are generally permitted to prescribe a drug for an “off label” or “unapproved” use when they determine it is medically appropriate for their patient.
