Dapoxetine Tablets 30mg, 60mg

Dapoxetine is a short acting drug that can be taken on demand (i.e. when needed). Randomised control trials showed that it is effective 1- 3 hours before sexual intercourse and results in increased ejaculatory control, decreased distress, and increased satisfaction. It is effective in both life long and acquired premature ejaculation. Side effects are dose related, hence the lowest effective dose should always be taken. A review of effect is advised after the first 4 weeks (or 6 doses) of treatment.

Consider using in the following circumstances
1. Persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation before, on or shortly after penetration and before desired
2. Personal distress or relationship challenges due to premature ejaculation
3. Poor ejaculatory control
4. History of premature ejaculation in most intercourse attempts over the last 6 months
