How It Works
Dapoxetine works by increasing the activity of Serotonin in the brain. It is a short-acting, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) that blocks the reabsorption of Serotonin into neurons. This makes it possible for Serotonin to be made available to the brain. Thus, the transmission of messages between neurons is improved. The process of ejaculation gets delayed by a few minutes. This helps the person to have satisfying sexual intercourse with his partner by gaining control over his ejaculation.
The tablet is prescribed for the treatment of the following conditions:
- Premature Ejaculation (PE) – a condition that causes a man to ejaculate sooner than he or his partner would expect him to during sexual intercourse.
Dapoxetine comes in the following dosage:
- 30 mg

- 90 mg
This tablet is meant to be taken orally with water. It can be taken with or without food. For best results, it is recommended to take the pill 1 to 3 hours before sexual intercourse. Do not consume more than one tablet in 24 hours.
