Painkiller that helps men stay the distance in the bedroom

A drug widely used for pain relief could help men suffering from premature ejaculation, say scientists at the University of North Carolina.

Previous small studies have suggested that the drug tramadol can help in this way, but the evidence has been mixed.

Researchers have carried out a meta-analysis, combining the findings from eight studies for a more accurate conclusion, and found that tramadol significantly reduced premature ejaculation.

Reporting in the International Journal of Impotence Research, they say small doses of tramadol two to three hours before sex increased the time between starting sex and orgasm from just 20 to 60 seconds to between three and ten minutes.

Tramadol has been around for nearly 40 years and is used for moderate and severe pain, typically following surgery. It’s one of a class of drugs called opiates, also including codeine, methadone and heroin.
