Escitalopram has been claimed to have the highest selectivity for the human serotonin transporter relative to the noradrenaline or dopamine transporters. This might be associated with greater clinical efficacy. Most adverse events reported by escitalopram-treated patients are mild and transient.
In this study, we compare escitalopram with placebo in the treatment of PE.
