The drug is based on dapoxetine hydrochloride, which belongs to a class of medications known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Serotonin performs the function of a neurotransmitter that provides not only an upliftment of mood, working capacity but also a high potency.
Dapoxetine hydrochloride increases its concentration, inhibiting re-uptake by receptors. The result is an indirect antidepressant effect and an increased time of sexual intercourse before ejaculation.
