There are some rare, but serious side effects of Priligy. You should seek urgent medical advice if you notice any changes in your mood, including thoughts of harming yourself, or suicide. Rarely, Priligy can cause some people to have fits or seizures. You should consult a doctor immediately if this happens.
Priligy can cause your blood pressure levels to drop, which might make you feel dizzy or faint. Please stop taking the medication and consult a doctor immediately if you have fits or faints, or feel dizzy on standing up. To avoid this happening, ensure that you drink plenty of water whilst taking the treatment, and do not take Priligy if you may be dehydrated, e.g. following alcohol, or any illness where you have vomiting, diarrhoea, sweating or a fever.
If you feel dizzy or faint, sit or lie down as quickly as you can, and get into a position where your head is lower down than the rest of your body, e.g. sit with your head between your knees until you feel better. You should stop taking the medication and contact a doctor.
