Compulsive Self-pleasuring? Could Be Pramipexole

As most men know, self-pleasuring is an excellent way to relieve sensual tension, release daily stress or simply to have a good time with oneself. (It also can have a positive impact on male organ health by keeping the organ well exercised.) Although many guys worry about their rate of self-pleasuring, few are actually compulsive self-stimulators. And according to some studies, sometimes compulsive self-pleasuring may be the result of using a medication known as pramipexole.

What is pramipexole?

Pramipexole is what is called a “non-ergot dopamine agonist.” What this basically means is that it is a compound which plays a role in regulating dopamine, which is associated with pleasure. Put in simplest terms, dopamine encourages people to lean toward behaviors that give them pleasure.

But pramipexole also has some valid uses in treating specific medical conditions. For example, it often is prescribed for Parkinson’s disease, as it can sometimes help to lessen the body function impairment associated with that disease. Many patients with restless leg syndrome receive benefit from it, and there have been studies as well in using the tablet for bipolar disorder and depression.

Side effects

As with any tablet, there are side effects associated with pramipexole. Some of them are relatively minor or usual, such as headaches or decreased appetite. Others are of more concern, such as hallucinations and fainting. Doctors have also noted that dopamine agonists like pramipexole are sometimes associated with compulsive behaviors, such as gambling.

One interesting case involved a man who was treated with pramipexole for restless leg syndrome for several years. The medication seemed to work well for this condition. However, his wife noticed that his sensual behaviors had changed since he began taking the medication. He now self-stimulated 6 to 8 times every day and seemed to have little control over it. He would often leave the table in the middle of meal in order to self-gratify. (This happened not only when dining at home but also when in restaurants or when having dinner at another person’s house.) This had not been an issue previously.

Clearly, this was a case of an individual who did indeed fit the description of a compulsive self-stimulator. The doctor knew of the association between dopamine antagonists and compulsive behaviors and so suggested taking the patient off the tablet. Within two weeks, his compulsive self-pleasuring had stopped.

Not the only one

There have been other cases in which pramipexole has been associated with self-pleasuring. For example, a journal published another case study in which a patient with Parkinson’s was prescribed the medication. He also reported developing a compulsion to self-fondle several times a day. In addition, his partner reported that he had started self-gratifying even while he was asleep.

As with the previous case, the doctor discontinued use of pramipexole. Within a short period of time, the patient’s self-pleasuring frequency returned to normal (and the sleep self-pleasuring did cease as well.)

It should be noted that many people use pramipexole (or other dopamine antagonists) without this side effect of compulsive self-pleasuring. However, if a man is prescribed the tablet and does find his self-gratifying habits becoming compulsory, he should definitely confer with his doctor.

Even without pramipexole, however, a man’s self-pleasuring routine may be such that he rubs himself a bit raw on occasion. Daily use of a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help treat that rawness. For best results, the member needs to be properly moisturized, and that means that the chosen crème should contain both a high end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrating agent (such as vitamin E). As a bonus, select a crème with vitamin A; this vitamin’s anti-bacterial property can help fight unwanted manhood odor, a significant problem for many men.
