Dapoxetine Side Effects and How to Avoid them

Dapoxetine is an antidepressant drug available by prescription for treating premature ejaculation. Like with all prescription drugs, there are some possible side effects from taking Dapoxetine. In most cases, these side effects (if any) are mild and not cause for you to worry.

Common Dapoxetine Side Effects which are NOT Serious
•Pains in stomach area
•Feeling weak
•Dried mouth
•Chills or sweats
•Grinding teeth
•Nasal congestion

In addition to these common side effects from Dapoxetine, the medicine may also uncommonly cause these unserious side effects: orgasm failure, mild paranoia, impotence, or low libido.

Dapoxetine enters and leaves the body system very quickly. So, if you have any side effects, they should be gone within a couple hours of taking the medicine. If you have any side effects from Dapoxetine which last a prolonged period of time, then you should consult your doctor.

Uncommon Dapoxetine Side Effects which May be Serious
•Increased blood pressure
•Blurry vision
•Dizzy spells or fainting
•Abnormal pulse
•Severe changes in mood

If you have any of these side effects, you should not take Dapoxetine again until you talk to your doctor. If the side effects are very severe, then you should talk to your doctor right away.

Avoiding Dapoxetine Side Effects

There isn’t too much that you can do to avoid side effects from Dapoxetine. Some men are simply more sensitive to the medicine than others. If you feel nauseous or faint from taking Dapoxetine, then you should try eating a light meal before taking the medicine. Also, always take Dapoxetine with a full glass of water. This prevents you from becoming dehydrated, which can lead to dizziness, blurry vision, or orgasm failure.

The best way to avoid side effects from Dapoxetine is to take the medicine exactly as you were prescribed. Never take more than one dosage of Dapoxetine at once. Studies show that larger dosages of Dapoxetine do not significantly improve lasting time but a large dosage of Dapoxetine could make you have unpleasant side effects. These side effects could interfere with your ability to perform well in bed. You should not take Dapoxetine more than once in a period of 24 hours.

While it is generally considered safe to take Dapoxetine with alcohol, it is advised that you avoid alcohol completely while taking Dapoxetine. The premature ejaculation drug can increase the side effects associated with alcohol. So, if you are normally fine drinking a few beers, you may start to feel very sick and disoriented after those few drinks while on Dapoxetine. The alcohol can also lead to temporary erectile dysfunction so you won’t be able to take advantage of the lasting powers that Dapoxetine gives you.
