Vriligy tablets contain 60mg of Dapoxetine as its active ingredient. Dapoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor that is used to help men aged 18 to 64 years of age experiencing premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is characterized by the occurrence of ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation before, during or shortly after penetration before a man desires for it to occur. This drug is also helpful in men experiencing distress as a result of premature ejaculation and men with poor control over ejaculation.
This drug works by increasing the serotonin activity in the nervous system. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that sends messages between nerve cells and has different body functions. It is also responsible in sending nerve messages resulting in ejaculation. Increased activity of serotonin aids in the increase in time before ejaculation occurs and helps improve control over ejaculation.
Vriligy is manufactured by Centurion Laboratories Ltd.
