Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have
problem of Premature ejaculation since many years from the beginning of your sexual life.(Primary Premature Ejaculation)

As regards your query about Protone Pump Inhibitors (PPI) medicines, there is not a single research study indicating that it reduces the production of nitric oxide and reduce blood circulation in penis.

Cymbalta (Dapoxetine) is a drug that belongs to Selective Serotine Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) widely used all over the world in treating premature ejaculation and as anti depressant..
You can certainly have a trial of Cymbalta after discussion with your family Physician keeping in mind the side effects of this drug.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you

Thanks for your valuable information and will go through it.
The vast research studies done over PPI all over the world so far have not mentioned about its interference on penile circulation .
The studies that you have mentioned will need to be disscused on scientific forums before they are being accepted by WHO or scientific organisations.
