What is Bremelanotide PT-141?
Bremelanotide PT-141 is a novel treatment option for sexual dysfunction that works in both men and women.
PT-141, also known as Bremelanotide, is a synthetic peptide that is used to treat sexual dysfunction. While Viagra and
Cialis, which are PDE-5 inhibitors that work to increase blood flow into the penis, PT-141 is a melanocortin, which works at
the brain to increase sexual desire. The synthetic peptide blend was developed from Melanotan II, and was originally
intended to darken skin pigmentation and induce tanning. However, during the initial testing, patients noted a pleasant
side effect – that it caused increased sexual arousal.
How Does Bremelanotide PT-141 Work?
Bremelanotide PT-141 is a molecule that binds to and activates the melanocortin receptors associated with skin
Currently, Bremelanotide PT-141 is administered via a subcutaneous injection, ideally where there are fat deposits. The
only legitimate form of the peptide is injectable. Oral pills, nasal sprays, and creams have not been shown to be an
effective means in which to administer Bremelanotide PT-141.
Given that everyone responds differently to Bremelanotide PT-141, effective dosages may vary. A 2mg dose is generally
effective for men and women, about 1 hour prior to sexual activity. Some studies suggest starting with a 1mg test dose
and injecting an identical amount 30 minutes later. By consulting our physician, you can receive a cycle protocol best
suited for your condition. In studies, some subjects responded to PT-141 in minutes while others took several hours to
see the effects.
