Who should take special care when using Delay Spray?

The elderly

  • Delay Spray is not recommended for use by the elderly.

Children and adolescents

  • Do not give this medicine to children or adolescents under 18 years of age.

People with kidney and liver problems

  • If you have, or have ever had, liver or kidney problems – ask your doctor before using the spray.

People using other medicines

  • High blood levels of the active ingredient of Delay Spray, lidocaine, can cause interactions with other medicines. Although this is unlikely to occur with the low levels absorbed from Delay Spray you should ask a licensed healthcare clinician or pharmacist for advice before using the spray if you are taking other medicines.
  • Please tell your practitioner or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines or herbal therapies obtained without a prescription.

People who are  and/or Breast-feeding

  • Although Delay Spray is applied to the penis only, it must not be used if your partner is pregnant unless you use a male condom.
  • This medicine may be used while your partner is breast-feeding.

People trying to conceive

  • Delay Spray may reduce the possibility of pregnancy, but is not a reliable contraceptive. Therefore, patients hoping to achieve conception should either avoid using Delay Spray, or, if this medicine is essential to achieve penetration, should wash the penis as thoroughly as possible prior to intercourse.
