What is Priligy?
Priligy tablets contain the active ingredient dapoxetine, a type of medicine known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. This medicine influences the passing of information between nerve cells. Priligy improves control over ejaculation and is used to treat premature ejaculation in men.
What is it used for?
Priligy is used to treat premature ejaculation, a common sexual dysfunction characterised by uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. Men that suffer from premature ejaculation are unable to delay their orgasms and ejaculate too quickly, in most cases one to two minutes after penetration. Premature ejaculation can create relationship problems and feelings of frustration and powerlessness. Priligy helps delay ejaculation in order to prolong the sexual act.
How to use Priligy
One Priligy tablet should be taken one to three hours before sexual activity. The tablet should be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids while taking this medicine to prevent side effects such as dizziness and fainting.
To reduce the risk of serious side effects, do not take this medicine more than three times a week.
Unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, the usual dose is:
- Men aged 18 to 64 years: one 30 mg tablet.
- The maximum daily dose is one tablet.
If this is not effective enough your doctor may increase your dose to 60 mg. Never take a double dose to increase effectiveness.
Priligy generally has few side effects, but in some cases it may cause:
- Fainting (Priligy is known to lower blood pressure. Dehydration increases the risk of fainting, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids);
- Feeling restless or anxious.
See the package leaflet for a complete list of possible side effects.
When not to use Priligy
Priligy is not suitable for everyone and should not be used in:
- women or adolescents under the age of 18;
- people who are allergic to dapoxetine or any other ingredient in this product;
- people with significant heart problems, such as heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias;
- people with a history of fainting;
- people with a history of severe depression or mania.
Priligy interacts with other medicines, including some antidepressants, migraine medicines and erectile dysfunction tablets. The doctor will have a list of medicines that you should avoid mixing it with. It is therefore important to mention what other medicines you are taking during the online consultation. See the package leaflet for a complete list of contraindications and warnings.
Priligy is not intended for women.
This medicine may affect your ability to react and increase the chance of fainting. Stay out of traffic until you are sure it won’t affect your performance.
Alcohol may intensify side effects such as dizziness and fainting. It is recommended that you limit or avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine.
Priligy is the first approved medicine for premature ejaculation. Since its introduction, many men have had positive experiences with Priligy. One of the benefits over, for example, analgesic cream is that it is much easier to use. Users have also indicated that Priligy provides improvement in orgasm intensity.
