What is Sustimax
Sustimax 30/50 mg is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation in men.
It helps men obtain and maintain an erection and prevents peak-time erection loss by increasing blood flow to the penile area.
It also delays ejaculation during sexual activity for better intimacy.
This prescription-based medication is prescribed only to people with known medical conditions.
Emcure Pharmaceuticals Ltd. manufactures Sustimax (30+50) mg.
Uses of Sustimax
Sildenafil and Dapoxetine are the two active ingredients of this medicine. Sildenafil is known to treat Erectile Dysfunction, and Dapoxetine is potent in treating Premature Ejaculation.
Erectile Dysfunction, also known as impotence, is characterized by the inability to attain and sustain an erection during sexual intercourse.
Regardless of age, Erectile Dysfunction can affect any man. Numerous reasons explain the failure to achieve an erection and should not be ignored.
Men experience Premature Ejaculation when semen leaves the body before it is desired during sexual intercourse. It is the most regular sexual complaint.
It is possible to treat Premature Ejaculation. Medications can all help delay Ejaculation.
How does Sustimax work
Sustimax 50+30 mg contains two salts: Sildenafil (50mg) and Dapoxetine (30mg)
Sildenafil (50mg) - Treats Erectile Dysfunction
Sildenafil belongs to a class of Phosphodiesterase Type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors.
This inhibition restricts PDE5 enzymes and raises the Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (cGMP) level.
An increase in cGMP level leads to vasodilation.
As a result, it helps relax the blood vessels in the penile area and enhances the blood flow through the penis during sexual stimulation.
Dapoxetine (30mg) - Treats Premature Ejaculation
Dapoxetine is a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) that blocks the reabsorption (reuptake) of Serotonin into neurons.
It makes more Serotonin available to improve the transmission of messages between neurons.
As a result, it enhances ejaculatory control and delays the time of ejaculation during sexual activity.
In Sustimax (30+50) mg, salts perform their respective functions and help overcome Sexual conditions like Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation simultaneously.
