General Description

Priligy Ireland (generic name: Dapoxetine) is prescribed for the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) among adult men 18 – 64 years old. Priligy

Ireland should be prescribed only to patients, who meet all the criteria listed below:

  • Recurrent or persistent ejaculation with minimal amount of sexual stimulation prior to, on, or within a short period after the penetration, as well as before the patient actually wishes;
  • An intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of less than 2 minutes;
  • Poor ejaculation control;
  • Personal distress or interpersonal difficulty caused by Premature Ejaculation;
  • A history of premature Ejaculation occurring in the majority of attempts of intercourse during the past 6 months.

Priligy Ireland should be taken only as based on demand before the anticipated sexual activity. Priligy is not to be prescribed to delay ejaculation in men who are not actually suffering from Premature Ejaculation.


Adult men (18–64 years old)

The recommended initial dose for all types of patients is 30 mg, which is to be taken as required more or less 1 – 3 hours prior to sexual activity. Treatment with Priligy Ireland should not be started with the 60mg dose. Priligy is not advised to be taken for a continuous daily use. Priligy should be taken only once the sexual activity is anticipated. Priligy should not exceed more than once for every 24 hours. If the patient’s response to 30mg dose is insufficient and there are no severe or moderate adverse reactions as well as prodromal symptoms of syncope observed in patient, then dose can be subsequently increased up to a maximum of 60mg recommended dose, which should be taken as required approximately 1–3 hours before sexual activity is anticipated. The severity and incidence of adverse events become higher when the dose is 60mg. If the patient experiences any orthostatic reactions at the initial dose, then no dose escalation to 60mg should be conducted.

Elderly men (over 65 years old)

The safety and efficacy of Priligy Ireland have not been fully established in patients aged 65 years old and above.

Priligy Ireland tablets for oral use should be swallowed whole in order to avoid the any bitter taste with at least one full glass of water. Priligy is allowed to be taken with and without food.


Priligy is prohibited for prescription to men, who do not have Premature Ejaculation. There is no established safety and no data related to the ejaculation−delaying effects, that can be caused among men, who do not suffer from Premature Ejaculation.

Prior to treatment, patients with other types of sexual dysfunction (e.g. erectile dysfunction) should be investigated in details by doctor. Priligy Ireland is not allowed for men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) and using PDE5 inhibitors.

Prior to initiation of treatment, a careful medical check and history of orthostatic events should be carried out by the doctor. An orthostatic test is to be performed prior to therapy initiation (i.e. pulse rate, blood pressure, standing and supine). In case if there is an orthostatic history or orthostatic reaction suspected, then Priligy is not suitable for treatment.

Patients should avoid situations where an injury may happen (e.g. driving car or operating heavy, hazardous machinery), in case if syncope or its prodromal symptoms (e.g. dizziness or light-headedness) occur. There may be certain prodromal symptoms like dizziness/light-headedness, nausea and diaphoresis among patients undergoing treatment with Priligy Ireland.

The risk of adverse cardiovascular results from syncope increase among patients suffering from underlying structural cardiovascular disease (e.g. valvular heart disease, documented outflow obstruction, coronary artery disease and carotid stenosis).

Priligy is not allowed for prescription to women. Animal studies have not revealed any direct or indirect adverse effects related to fertility, pregnancy and/or embryonic/foetal development. It is not confirmed whether Dapoxetine as well as the metabolites in its content can transfer in human milk. Hence, it is not advised for pregnant or breastfeeding women to take Priligy in order to avoid any harmful outcomes.
