Uncovering the Difference between Emla and Fortacin Spray
Up until now, a common practice for treating Premature Ejaculation has been to prescribe Emla Cream. Although Emla Cream is not indicated for the treatment of premature ejaculation, some doctors prescribe it ‘off label’ to provide temporary relief.
Now a new product has entered the market. And it is officially indicated for the treatment of premature ejaculation in adult men. If you have previously used Emla Cream or tablets such as Priligy, then Fortacin may be the better option for you.
What is Emla Cream?
Emla Cream is a local anaesthetic and is used to numb the skin before procedures such as blood tests, injections or during minor surgery. Because of its numbing properties, you can also use it to decrease sensitivity of the penis in men suffering from premature ejaculation.
However, the main purpose of Emla Cream is not not treat this condition and the medicine is unlicensed for this purpose.
What is Fortacin Spray?
Fortacin is a fairly new product on the market. It is indicated for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men over the age of 18. For Fortacin to be prescribed the condition should be lifelong. This means that if you only ever suffer from irregular occasions of premature ejaculation, you are unlikely to benefit from using Fortacin.
What is the difference between Emla Cream and Fortacin?
1. The Effect
Even though they contain the same active ingredients, Fortacin has been produced to reduce the sensitivity of the glans penis instead of numbing it. Fortacin essentially keeps you going for longer, without affecting the sensation of ejaculation.
2. The Onset of Action
Another key difference is the onset of action. This refers to the time a medicine or treatment needs before it is effective. You are recommended to apply Emla 30 minutes before intercourse, while you only need 5 minutes for Fortacin to be effective.
3. Ease of Use
Emla Cream should always be applied wearing protective gloves. As Fortacin is a spray, it is easily applied directly from the container.
Fortacin can be ordered online from UK registered and MHRA approved online doctor site Doctor-4-U.
