medical indication and effects

Dapoxetine is the first compound developed for the treatment of premature ejaculation(PE) in men. It belongs to the group of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI) and was initially created as an antidepressant. Dapoxetine works by inhibiting the serotonin transporter while increasing the action of serotonin at the post synaptic cleft. As a consequence this mechanism promotes ejaculatory delay. It was developed by Eli Lilly and sold to Johnson & Johnson in 2003, unfortunately dapoxetine has been stuck in phase III development since then. However, numerous generic manufacturers have acquired the rights of the compound too and finished it's development in 2010. Since then it is marketed under several brand names.
