When is it used?
According to the instruction one of the indications for Desyrel use is sexual disorders of men, expressed in the following symptoms:
Weak erection, insufficient for sexual intercourse.
Lack of control over ejaculation.
Insufficient duration of coitus.
However, the presence of these signs is not sufficient for use of the drug. Desyrel is assigned only when it is determined that erectile dysfunction is based on psychological disharmony, not treatable by conventional therapy.
Why do disorders arise?
As a rule, disorders of potency, caused by psychological reasons, are hardly distinguished from disorders that develop for other reasons. The weakening of libido and erection in different cases are the same. Therefore it is important to pay attention to additional symptoms of the disease.
Desyrel is prescribed in case of the signs of psychological disharmony: disturbed sleep or appetite, apathy, lethargy, reduced interest in life and activity, feelings of guilt, excessive self-doubt, poor concentration, depressive thoughts, increased anxiety, phobias.
The source of this disorder, which subsequently causes the violation of potency, is often a psychological trauma. But there are cases of occurrence of such diseases in the background of alcohol and drug addiction.
The efficacy and mechanism of action
According to the instructions and reviews of doctors, Trazodone is not a stimulant. It does not give a result after just one use, it is suitable only for a course of therapy. In case of 50% of patients the result is observed after a week, 25 % – after 2-4 weeks. Patients begin to feel improvement in sexual function (increased libido, there are rare cases of premature ejaculation, increasing erection).
Desyrel enters the body and absorbs serotonin, thereby increasing the concentration of 5-oxytriptophan and blocking alpha-adrenergic receptors. Nervous tension is reduced and the brain activity, conversely, becomes more pronounced.
