Dapoxetine side effects

    Dapoxetine belongs to the group of preparations called SSRIs that have a short half-life. Basically it means that our body consumes and gets rid of it in a short-time period and it makes it much safer than most of other medications. However just like any other drug it has certain side effects that may possibly affect patients who are susceptible or allergic to components of the drug. You shouldn’t try to bear the Dapoxetine side effects described below by yourself and in case you feel any of the effects you should stop taking Dapoxetine and contact your doctor.

Blood Pressure

Asthenia, dizziness, and sudden mood changes are the most common affects among SSRIs drug group and other. The components of the drug may cause the drop of blood pressure and this is what causes these effects. To minimize the risks, please make sure that you take Dapoxetine with a full glass of water. It strongly recommended not taking Dapoxetine if you are dehydrated. You might be in this state after a practice, if you have a fever, vomiting or if you haven’t had anything to drink for last 3-5 hours. You may also experience the similar side effects if you stand up quickly after lying down or sitting for a long time. You can avoid or minimize the effect if you will stand up slowly. Also it is strongly recommended not to drive after while taking Dapoxetine in case if you feel faint after it.

In case of Allergy

If you are allergic to any ingredients that the drug comprises (less than 10% of people who’d ever taken Dapoxetine were allergic to one or several ingredients) you may suffer from anxiousness, numbness, sweating more than normal or red coloring of the face. Besides, your ability to concentrate may weaken. Fatigue and frequent yawning may also occur. Allergy may cause gastrointestinal changes, such as constipation or diarrhea. It is unlikely but in a very few cases your libido may weaken. Also regular allergic symptoms like running nose, trembling, dry mouth, stomachache and eyes irritation may occur as well. You should stop taking the drug if you feel any of these symptoms and contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately.

The clinical research showed that patients experienced paranoia, sudden changes of blood pressure and heart rate, disorientation and visual disturbances in less than 0.1% of cases (1 out of 10000). However most of the listed symptoms were caused because the volunteers suffered from some other diseases while taking Dapoxetine. In case if you don’t feel confident about your actual health state then you should consult your doctor before taking the drug.
