Dapoxetine, marketed as Priligy, among others, is a medication used for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men 18–64 years old. Dapoxetine works by inhibiting the serotonin transporter, increasing serotonin’s action at the postsynaptic cleft, and as a consequence promoting ejaculatory delay.
Dapoxetine is a medicine used for the treatment of premature ejaculation (a sexual dysfunction in which a man ejaculates too quickly during sexual intercourse). This medicine helps in increasing the time taken to ejaculate and achieving better control over ejaculation during sexual intercourse.
Dapoxetine has some side effects like dizziness, headache, nausea, and sweating. These side effects may subside by themselves. Consult your doctor if they bother you for a long time or become severe. Avoid taking this medicine if you are allergic to it.
Dapoxetine should only be used if you are diagnosed with premature ejaculation. It can be taken with or without food as instructed by your doctor. It is usually taken as needed, one to three hours before sexual activity. It is not intended for regular daily use. Avoid taking more than one tablet within 24 hours.
