Bremelanotide, or PT-141 as it’s becoming increasingly known as, is an analog of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone which then acts at the melanocortin-4 receptors in your central nervous system. It’s a quite an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction and stimulating female arousal. Bremelanotide (PT-141) is the first FDA approved peptide for sexual enhancement.
The latter is the most pronounced effect increasing both men and women’s libidos and sexual gratification. Men will experience substantially stronger and longer lasting erections. PT-141 is ideal for those with erectile dysfunction or those simply wishing to improve sexual performance.
Unlike Viagra and other related medications, it does not act upon the vascular system, but directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system. PT 141 provides stimulation to your central nervous system that increases sexual responses by activating and boosting dopamine production.
The most common side effect is nausea which appears to be dose dependent. Other less common side effects include headache and upset stomach and a potential acute rise in cortisol. Before increasing your dose, consult with your physician.
PT-141 is typically taken sublingually (under the tongue), 2-4 hours prior to sexual activity. Dosages may vary as directed by your physician.
