DAPOXY 60MG contains Dapoxetine which belongs to a group of medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which is also known as urological medicine. It is used to treat premature ejaculation in men above 18 to 64 years of age. Premature ejaculation (PE) is a condition when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wants. It is characterized by a lack of voluntary control over ejaculation that interferes with optimal sexual or psychological well-being in either partner.
Dapoxetine is a SSRI which has been promoted for delaying premature ejaculation. It acts rapidly and can be taken 1 hour before sexual intercourse and can also combined with behavioural therapies. It works by increasing the level of serotonin in the nervous system to increase the time taken to ejaculate and improve control over ejaculation.
