Levitra is one of the most effective Erectile dysfunction (ED) medications offered on the market. The active ingredient in the medicine is Vardenafil, which is responsible for increasing the blood flow to a male penis by enlarging the arteries.
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection in order to have successful sexual intercourse. Nowadays, as there are numerous ED treatments to address this problem, men do not have to give in the illness or abandon their sex lives.
Is Levitra approved?
Levitra was approved by FDA in 2003, and is now manufactured by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. Glaxo Smith Kline is the official distributor of the medication.
How does Levitra work?
Being a PDE5 inhibitor drug, Levitra relaxes the patient’s arteries, thus enhancing the blood flow to his penis once sexually aroused. Without sexual stimulation, the medication itself is not able to achieve an erection. Therefore, your sexual partner and Levitra will need to to ‘cooperate’ in order to achieve an erection.
In fact, all ED medications work according to the same principle. However, unlike the popular Viagra or Sildenafil, the efficiency of which lasts only up to two hours, Levitra can provide a rock-hard erection for up to four hours!
Levitra tablets & jelly
Levitra is available in ordinary tablets and disintegrating tablets in form of oral jelly. While the former requires drinking a full glass of water in order for the pill to be dissolved in the stomach, the latter is taken without water. It dissolves directly in the mouth. However, it should not be swallowed until it is completely dissolved in the mouth. No kind of drink should be taken with this medication type.
Levitra is available in several dosages – 10mg, 20mg, 40mg, and 60mg. The recommended starting dose is 10 mg. The active ingredient of Levitra, Vardenafil, is much stronger than is the active citrate, Sildenafil, in Viagra, as Levitra 20 mg is equal to 100 mg of Viagra. This is why Levitra is much more effective than are all the other PDE5 inhibitor drugs (compare Viagra, Cialis and Levitra).
How to take Levitra?
Levitra is prescribed to be taken between twenty and sixty minutes prior to sexual intercourse. Doctors warn patients not to take more than one pill in twenty-four hours.
Whether to take Levitra with or without food is left to the patients’ choice, although they should avoid drinking alcohol when taking the medication. Alcohol may not only reduce the drug’s efficacy, but may also increase the possibility of adverse effects.
There is no medication that does not have side effects, and Levitra is not an exception. Adverse effects of Vardenafil are rare, yet are still possible. The most common side effects are headaches, vomiting, dizziness, a stuffy or runny nose, flushing, and stomach upsets. As a rule, all these conditions will disappear within a few hours.
Levitra has drug interactions with the nitrate medications prescribed for heart problems and chest pains. One should also not use Levitra when taking amyl and butyl nitrate medications, or with antibiotic and antifungal drugs, those designed for erectile dysfunction, blood pressure, prostate problems, heart rhythm disorders, and medications for AIDS or HIV.
It is recommended to avoid drinking grapefruit juice when taking Levitra, as the juice may bring about adverse effects.
