How to Avoid Side Effects of Priligy?
Currently, there are no proven preventive measures to decrease the likelihood of experiencing side effects when taking Priligy. The sensitivity to Priligy can vary across users. However, if you experience nausea or dizziness after taking Priligy, it may be helpful before your next dose to eat a light meal. When taking Priligy, it is also important that this occurs with a full glass of water to prevent dehydration, which can lead to dizziness, blurred vision, or failure to achieve an orgasm.
The best way to minimize the chances of experiencing adverse side effects of Priligy is to take it as prescribed. Never take more than one dose of Priligy at the same time. Studies show that larger dosages of Priligy do not lead to significant improvements in the intended result. In contrast, taking a non-prescribed high dose of Priligy may lead to an increased risk of unpleasant side effects. The ensuing side effects may interfere with your ability to perform well in bed. You should also avoid taking Dapoxetine more than once in a 24-hour period.
Although it is considered safe to take Priligy with alcohol, the recommendation is to avoid alcohol when taking this medication. Consuming alcohol while taking Priligy can increase the risk for adverse side effects associated with this medication. For example, if you drink one or more beers, it is possible for you to experience the feeling of sickness and disorientation when taking Priligy. Consuming alcohol while taking Priligy can also lead to temporary erectile dysfunction.
