Compazine Sexual Side Effects
Impotence, priapism, and ejaculation problems are among the sexual side effects that can potentially occur during treatment with Compazine. If you experience any of these Compazine sexual side effects, you should report them to your healthcare provider. He or she may recommend treatment, adjust your Compazine dosage, or prescribe a different medication for your condition.
Compazine® (prochlorperazine maleate), like other phenothiazine medications, may cause certain sexual side effects. Compazine sexual side effects may include:
- Ejaculation problems
- Impotence (also known as erectile dysfunction or ED)
- A prolonged and painful erection (priapism).
Compazine is also known to cause ejaculatory problems in men. These problems can include delayed ejaculation or even the complete inability to ejaculate.
Compazine is known to cause impotence in men. Impotence is often defined as a total inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. Ultimately, impotence is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
Priapism is a very rare side effect of medications like Compazine. Priapism is a painful erection of the penis that does not go away, even after sexual intercourse or masturbation. If left untreated, priapism can lead to permanent damage to the penis. For this reason, it is very important to seek medical attention immediately if you think you are having symptoms of priapism. Even though this may seem embarrassing, it is necessary to avoid permanent damage to the penis. If your healthcare provider is not available, you should seek emergency medical care.
