User avatar Are you saying that your libido (desire to have sex) is down, you're less interested in sex than before you tood the medication? Or that you're ejaculating prematurely? Do you have any problem getting and maintaining an erection before you orgasm or only afterwards? Need more information on this.

It is normal for a man to have a refractory period after orgasm before he can acheive another erection.

The diet pill you are taking is very similar to amphetamines, which can definitely cause a problem getting an erection, but they don't usually cause a problem with libido.

If lack of libido is the problem, it may be due to other medications, mainly antidepressants and blood pressure medicines.

As far as finishing before your wife, why not try using a vibrator during sex so she can have an orgasm?
