In a clinical pharmacology trial of Dapoxetine at daily doses up to 240 mg, there were no unexpected interactions with other drugs. Serotonin-mediated adverse effects such as somnolence, gastrointestinal problems such as nausea and vomiting, tachycardia, tremor, agitation, and dizziness are common signs of SSRI overdose. In the event of an overdose, normal supportive measures should be used.
Hypersensitivity to dapoxetine HCl or any of the excipients has been documented. Patients with severe pathological cardiac diseases, such as heart failure (NYHA class II-IV), conduction abnormalities (second- or third-degree AV block or sick sinus syndrome) not treated with a permanent pacemaker, major ischemic heart disease, or significant valve disease.
Treatment with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) at the same time or within 14 days of stopping treatment with an MAOI. Similarly, an MAOI should not be started after Dapoxetine has been stopped for at least 7 days.

In the same way, these medicinal/herbal medications should not be used within 7 days of stopping Dapoxetine.
Mode of actions
Dapoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), however, it differs differently from the SSRIs commonly used for depression and other mental illnesses such as Zoloft, Paxil, and Prozac.
Instead of taking the medicine every day, it was supposed to be given as needed, one to three hours before sex. It is also removed from the body faster than other SSRIs.
The average time to ejaculation in males who received treatment was 1.75 minutes in placebo-treated men, 2.78 minutes in those who received 30 milligrams of Dapoxetine, and 3.32 minutes in men who received 60 milligrams of the medicine. The research took three months to complete.
Although a few minutes may not seem like much, it was a significant amount of time for the patient.
Dosage & Administration
Recommended Starting Dose: 30 mg, taken as needed approximately 1-3 hrs prior to sexual activity.
Maximum Recommended Dosing Frequency: Once every 24 hrs. If the effect of 30 mg is insufficient and the side effects are acceptable, the dose may be increased to the maximum recommended dose of 60 mg.
