Dapoxetine is being developed as a treatment for premature ejaculation and has demonstrated rapid absorption and elimination in previous pharmacokinetic studies. Two open-label studies were conducted in healthy men: a parallel-group pharmacokinetic and safety study in young and elderly men and a randomized crossover food-effect study. Maximal plasma dapoxetine concentrations (C(max)) were similar in young and elderly men (338 and 310 ng/mL, respectively), as were the corresponding area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) values (2040 and 2280 ng x h/mL, respectively). When coadministered with food, C(max) was reduced by 11% (398 vs 443 ng/mL in the fed and fasted states, respectively), and the peak was delayed by approximately 30 minutes, indicating that food slowed the rate of absorption; however, systemic exposure to dapoxetine (ie, AUC) was not affected by food consumption. Thus, age or consumption of a high-fat meal has only a modest impact on dapoxetine pharmacokinetics in healthy men.
