Priligy tablets product information

Priligy tablets contain the active ingredient dapoxetine, which belongs to a class of medicines called SSRI. It helps to delay ejaculation and increases control over ejaculation. This helps to improve symptoms and reduce worry of premature ejaculation.

How to take

The usual dose recommended is to take 1 30mg tablet, 1-3 hours before sexual activity. It may be increased up to 60mg if control is not sufficient. You should not take it more than once per day. 

If you use it continuously, you should discuss it with your doctor after 4 weeks or 6 doses of treatment. 

Side effects of Priligy

Like all medicines, Priligy can cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.

The most common side effects associated are: feeling dizzy, headache or feeling sick. This medicine can cause a fall in blood pressure and fainting. Taking it with a full glass of water can help reduce the chance of side effects. You should also not stand up quickly after sitting or lying down for a long time. If you feel light headed when standing up, immediately lie down so your head is lower than the rest of your body. This helps to decrease chances of falls or injuries. It is also important that for you to avoid driving or operating machinery if you experience fainting with this medicine.

You should stop taking Priligy and seek urgent medical advice if you:

  • have convulsions or seizures
  • feel faint when you stand up
  • notice any changes in your mood
  • have suicidal or self-harm thoughts

The full list of side effects can be found in the patient information leaflet attached below.

  • have heart problems such as heart failure
  • have history of fainting
  • have ever had severe depression or mania (feeling over-excited or irritable)
  • have liver problems

Priligy has the potential to interact with many medicines, so if you are taking other medications and you are unsure, you should check with a doctor or pharmacist for advice.
