Cenforce D is a combination drug containing 100mg of Sildenafil citrate and 60mg of Dapoxetine hydrochloride, used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation in men 18 to 64 years of age. It helps men get and maintain erection and improve ejaculation time.
Sildenafil citrate belongs to the drug class called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. It works in helping men get and maintain an erection by increasing blood flow to the penis following sexual stimulation.
Dapoxetine on the other hand, is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), an antidepressant that increases serotonin and norepinephrine levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is responsible in sending nerve messages that results in many body functions including ejaculation. Dapoxetine is a drug used in premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is a disorder where a man ejaculates before, during or shortly after penetration with minimal sexual stimulation even before a man even desires to do so. This drug improves control over ejaculation and increase time to ejaculation by increasing serotonin activity in the nervous system, delaying ejaculation reflex.
