Is Dapoxetine helpful in treating premature ejaculation?
Q: I am 30 years old and have a problem with premature ejaculation. I heard of tablets called Dapoxetine (30 mg and 60 mg), which help treat this. Is it available in India? Does it have any side effects or something?
A:Dapoxetine is a medicine for use in psychiatric disorders. An application made to U.S. Food and Drugs Administration (USFDA) to use it for so-called premature ejaculation has not been accepted. Dapoxetine has many serious side-effects such as psychiatric problems, skin reactions, increase in body weight, lower sex-drive, nausea, headache, upset stomach and weakness. It is not approved for use in India.
