PT-141, also known as Bremelanotide, is the first peptide to treat both men and women for low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. Unlike Viagra and Cialis, which are PDE-5 inhibitors that work by increasing blood flow to the penis, PT-141 is a melanocortin and works directly in the brain to increase sexual arousal.
It binds to the melanocortin receptors in your brain, including those in the hypothalamus, and activates dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is critical for arousal. This is why PT-141 has been found to be more effective than other medications that are designed to boost your sex life.
The injection of PT-141 is administered subcutaneously (under the skin) and usually takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to take effect. It is easy, quick and discreet to administer compared to other treatments like sex pills, sprays or creams that can be difficult to use in public or at home. Because it is a prescription medication, PT-141 must be injected under the supervision of a physician to ensure proper dosage and to prevent any adverse reactions.
PT-141 is safe for most people and can be used in conjunction with other sex enhancement therapies or medications. However, it is important to discuss your medical history and current medications with a doctor before starting any treatment plan.
