Consuming with Alcohol
Simultaneous administration of ethanol in a single dose of 0.5 g per kg did not affect the pharmacokinetics of dapoxetine (with a single intake of 60 mg of the drug). However, Priligy in combination with ethanol increases drowsiness and reduces vigilance.
Most clinical trials have reported side effects, which include: nausea (11.0 and 22.2% in the groups receiving dapoxetine at a dose of 30 mg and 60 mg, respectively), dizziness (8 and 10.9%), headache (5.6 and 8.8%), diarrhea (3.5 and 6.9%), insomnia (2.1 and 3.9%), and fatigue (2, 0 and 4.1%). The most frequent side effects leading to withdrawal included nausea (2.2% of patients receiving Priligy) and dizziness (1.2% of patients receiving Priligy).
The drug is used in men only.
Ability to influence the speed of reaction
Priligy has a moderate influence on the ability to drive vehicles or other mechanisms. However, patients whose work is related to the management of potentially unsafe devices should use Priligy with caution, given the possible development of dizziness, fainting, orthostatic hypotension, and asthenia.
Concomitant use with other medicines for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
There were no significant changes in the pharmacokinetics of dapoxetine during the treatment with phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (including Viagra and Cialis), but the combined use of these drugs should be carried out with caution, given the increased risk of orthostatic hypotension.
In a study of the clinical pharmacology of Dapoxetine, unpredictable adverse reactions were not observed when administered in a daily dose of up to 240 mg.
