Premature ejaculation is among the common sexual complaints of men. About 1 in 3 men experience this problem. Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner than he or his partner wants to. It is an uncontrolled ejaculation that may happen before, during, or shortly after penetration, despite minimal stimulation. While men can feel ashamed about this problem, options are available to treat this condition. Counselling, sexual techniques, medications or combination of these can help improve this sexual problem.
Duratia 90 is one of the drugs available in the market that can help treat premature ejactulation. It contains 90mg of the active ingredient Dapoxetine dose. Dapoxetine is an antidepressant drug that has been found to be effective in treating premature ejaculation. This drug is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor that works by increasing the levels of serotonin in body. Low levels of serotonin results in poor control over ejaculation.
