How does it work?
Duratia 60 mg contains Dapoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) that is used to treat premature ejaculation in men. It works by increasing the amount of serotonin in the nervous system and brain, which helps in increasing ejaculation time. It blocks the reabsorption of serotonin into neurons, making serotonin readily available to the brain. Duratia 60 mg also helps with achieving better control over ejaculation. Thus, it enhances the overall experience.
