Priligy (Dapoxetine) is an antidepressant medication available by prescription to treat premature ejaculation. As with all prescription medications, there are some possible side effects of taking Dapoxetine. In most cases, these side effects (if any) are mild and do not cause concern.
Common side effects of Priligy (Dapoxetine) that are NOT serious:
- Pain in the stomach area
- Feeling weak
- Dry mouth
- Chills or sweats
- Grinding teeth
- Nasal congestion
In addition to these common side effects of Priligy, medicine can also rarely cause these unwanted side effects: failure of the orgasm, mild paranoia, impotence, or low libido.
Dapoxetine enters and leaves the body system very quickly. Therefore, if you have any side effects, you should disappear within a couple of hours of taking the medication. If you have some side effects of Dapoxetine that last for an extended period of time, then you should consult your doctor.
Uncommon side effects of Dapoxetine that can be serious:
- Increased blood pressure
- Blurry vision
- Dizzy spells or fainting spells
- Abnormal pulse
- Severe changes in mood
If you have any of these side effects, you should not re-take Dapoxetine until you talk to your doctor. If the side effects are very serious, you should talk to your doctor right away.
How to avoid side effects of Priligy:
There is not too much that you can do to avoid the side effects of Priligy (Dapoxetine). Some men are simply more sensitive to medicine than others. If you experience nausea or fainting while taking Dapoxetine, you should try to eat a light meal before taking the medicine. Also, always take Priligy (Dapoxetine) with a full glass of water. This prevents dehydration, which can cause dizziness, blurred vision or failure in orgasm.
The best way to avoid the side effects of Priligy is to take the medicine exactly as prescribed. Never take more than one dose of Dapoxetine at the same time. Studies show that larger dosages of Dapoxetine do not significantly improve long-lasting time but a large dose of Priligy could cause you to have unpleasant side effects. These side effects may interfere with your ability to perform well in bed. You should not take Dapoxetine more than once in a 24-hour period.
Although it is generally considered safe to take Priligy with alcohol, it is advised to avoid alcohol completely while taking Priligy. The medication for premature ejaculation can increase the side effects associated with alcohol. Therefore, if you are normally drinking a few beers well, you may begin to feel very sick and disoriented after those few drinks while you are taking Dapoxetine. Alcohol can also lead to temporary erectile dysfunction so you will not be able to take advantage of the lasting powers that Dapoxetine gives you.
