    Special Considerations for DAPOXETINE:

    1. This medication is to be swallowed whole because chewing or crushing it will give a bitter taste.

    2. No more than one tablet must be taken within 24 hours. This is to be taken before anticipating intercourse and is not intended for daily use.

    3. Not suitable for patients below 18 years of age or anyone with a history of heart disease, psychiatric illness, fainting, uncontrolled epilepsy, severe liver or kidney problems, heart attack, chest pain, and heart failure.

    4. Check with your doctor if you are taking other medications since they could interact with Dapoxetine and cause it to lessen the potency, or worsen the side effects.
