Brief Answer:
Alternative brand names mentioned

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Duralast / Prilyxet / Ejalong / Xydap are all good substitutes of Dapox (Dapoxetine). 30mg is the commonly prescribed dose. However, the dose would depend upon the clinical judgement of your treating physician.

Let me know if I could help further.

Thanks Dr. Saha.

I had also uploaded the prescription. Hope you could go through the same.

The reason I asked for substitute because Dapox 30 mg is not available at most pharmacies.

One last question - Are these medicines, habit forming?

Thanks & Regards

Thanks for writing back. Yes, I had checked the attached prescription. The 30mg dose of Dapoxetine is the most commonly available preparation although 60mg is also available. You can feel free to take any brand.
