What should I watch for while using Addyi?

Visit your doctor or health care professional for regular checks on your progress. Tell your doctor if your symptoms have not improved after you have taken this medicine for 8 weeks.
You may get dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness for at least 6 hours after you take your dose and until you know how this medicine affects you. The risk of severe drowsiness is increased if you are also taking other medicines that cause drowsiness, or if you take this medicine during waking hours. Only take this medicine at bedtime.
Alcohol can increase dizziness and drowsiness, and can increase the risk of low blood pressure or fainting spells when combined with this medicine. If you drink alcohol wait at least 2 hours after you stop drinking alcohol before taking your medicine at bedtime. Alternatively, skip your bedtime dose if you drink alcohol in the evening. After you have taken your medicine at bedtime do not drink alcohol until the following day.
Do not stand or sit up quickly. This reduces the risk of dizzy or fainting spells. This medicine can cause low blood pressure, sometimes with dizziness and fainting spells. If you begin to feel dizzy or lightheaded, lie down and call for help if the symptoms don''t go away.
