The Dapoxetine Diaries: A Romp Through the World of Anti-Climax Medication

The Dapoxetine Diaries . Once upon a time in the kingdom of the bedroom blues, there was a potion named Dapoxetine, which rose to fame after the launch of Priligy – a gallant knight in shimmering armor for lads grappling with the dragon of premature…climaxes.

I remember my own fling with this wonder drug, and even penned an exposé about my topsy-turvy romance with Priligy. It was, without doubt, my most comprehensive caper with this spirited ingredient. So, I thought, why not dish the dirt on Dapoxetine, its effects, and the occasional ‘oopsie’ moments it brings along? Let’s delve into this topic both subjectively and objectively, shall we?

The Lowdown on Dapoxetine

Let me revisit some bits of my experience in these notes about Dapoxetine. Many tout Priligy as Viagra’s cousin, but for premature…fireworks. Of course, I’ve also fooled around with Viagra – a few years back, after visiting three quacks (because I don’t like to count my chickens before they hatch) and then shared my Viagra exposé here. Let’s just say I had a platter of side effects from Sildenafil in Viagra.

Dapoxetine, the spirited ingredient in Priligy, much like Sildenafil is to Viagra, was originally whipped up as an antidepressant. Over time, it was discovered that Dapoxetine could effectively treat early ignitions. It works by increasing the amount of serotonin in the gaps between nerve cells, preventing the ‘happiness hormone’ from reaching the brain and spinal cord.

So, it blocks the ‘joy juice’ from reaching the brain? Bummer. Plus, the European Medicines Agency says that Priligy with 60 mg of Dapoxetine is a no-go, offering a platter of side effects.

Priligy comes in 30 mg and 60 mg doses. I tried the 60 mg one. About 2 hours later, I experienced sensations of ‘pins and needles’, restlessness, challenges in maintaining a salute, ringing in the ears, and blurred vision.

According to the Dapoxetine leaflet, it should be taken 1 to 3 hours before ‘getting jiggy’. Swallow the Priligy pill with a glass of water, preferably whole, and it can be taken with or without food – no dietary rules here.

What the Online Forums Gab About Dapoxetine

On the forums, Dapoxetine has been a hot topic, with opinions split down the middle. Some chaps report significant improvement in control and overall satisfaction after using this spirited substance. They emphasize that it allowed them to enjoy the act in a way previously inaccessible to them.

However, opinions vary, and most users mention side effects like nausea, headaches, and dizziness.

In my opinion, these reactions only highlight the importance of consulting a medical professional before trying Dapoxetine.

Dapoxetine’s ‘Don’ts’ According to the Leaflet

Before popping Priligy, or any Dapoxetine-containing medicine, be aware of the following:

  • Don’t be allergic to the spirited substance.
  • Don’t have heart issues, like heart failure or rhythm disorders.
  • Don’t have a history of fainting or severe dizziness.
  • Don’t take or have recently taken antidepressants.

As I said, Dapoxetine can interact with other medications or supplements, so it’s recommended to chinwag about this with your doctor, even if they don’t ask. Whatever supplements you’re taking, let them know.

Side Effects: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The list of side effects is quite extensive. Here are some of the most common:

  • Anxiety
  • Numbness
  • Challenges in maintaining a salute
  • Excessive sweating
  • Facial flushing
  • The scoots or blocked up
  • Sleepiness
  • Stuffy nose
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Decreased libido
  • Blurred vision
  • Indigestion
  • Dry mouth

The list of Priligy’s unusual reactions continues with over 20 more entries.

To minimize any risks, always follow your doctor’s instructions regarding the dosage and administration of Dapoxetine. Usually, the doctor will start with a lower dose and closely monitor the effects and reactions to the medication containing this substance.

Key Takeaways on Dapoxetine

So, Dapoxetine can be an effective treatment for those with control issues, but I say it should be used cautiously.

Let me remind you of the contraindications in the Dapoxetine leaflet (there are many more than I’ve mentioned here) and please consider my advice: consulting a doctor is the best solution and is in everyone’s best interest.

Also, if you’re looking for a natural Priligy alternative, I warmly recommend reading my article on uPotent opinions. It’s a honey-based potency paste with aphrodisiac herbs, so something that can’t do you wrong. It’s good for preventing premature…fireworks, and more. Better ask about it in pharmacies than about medications.

I prefer natural supplements like pills for bedroom woes and wouldn’t take medications again if I can help it.
