What is Levitra?

Levitra (vardenafil) is a prescription treatment in tablet form for men with erection problems. Clinically proven and on the market since 2003, it's a medication which is highly effective, yet available in low dose strengths – making it more suitable for those over the age of 50 and diabetic men. This also means that with Levitra you'll have a reduced chance of experiencing side effects.

As it gets to work in as little as 20 minutes – it is one of the fastest acting treatments for impotence, and lasts for up to five hours. It works well for men who have problems in getting erections, and equally helps those who have a problem in keeping it going – sometimes men can get an erection, but then lose it during penetration.

It also works for men who have other underlying health conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and is successful even when used alongside most types of blood pressure medication.[1]Unlike other erectile dysfunction treatments, this medication can even be taken after a meal, allowing for those spontaneous moments.

How does Levitra work?

Levitra (vardenafil) is one of many ED (erectile dysfunction) treatments such as Viagra and Cialis that work by increasing the blood flow to your penis. It achieves this by breaking down cGMP (a nucleotide released when aroused), which causes blood vessels in the penis to relax, allowing more blood in. This then leads to stronger and longer lasting erections. Also, cGMP is broken down when you climax, or when you are no longer stimulated, so that blood flow returns to normal.

This treatment can also inhibit PDE-5 (a naturally occurring enzyme in the body), making it easier to get and keep an erection. These treatments only target physiological issues, rather than any underlying psychological problems causing sexual dysfunction.

What are the benefits of Levitra?

Erectile problems are something that many men face at some point in their lifetimes, so it's important to recognise that you're not dealing with it on your own. In fact, more than 50% of men over the age of 40 experience it at some point. Fortunately many men who buy Levitra do so as it provides various benefits such as:

  • Fast acting and lasts for up to 5 hours
  • Low standard dosage = less chance of side effects
  • Can be taken after a meal
  • Ideal for men with certain existing conditions e.g. enlarged prostate or type 2 diabetes

Whilst one of the benefits are that it can be taken after food, it is essential that an especially large meal with a high fat content is not consumed as this may affect the efficacy of the Levitra tablets.

During your online consultation, you can tell our partner doctors about any pre-existing conditions you may have, and they'll be able to ascertain whether Levitra (vardenafil) is the correct medication for you to use.

How do I take Levitra tablets?

Levitra (vardenafil) is relatively easy and straightforward to use, it is advised though not to chew or crush the tablets, it should also not be taken after consuming large amounts of alcohol as this may limit its efficacy, other usage instructions include:

Levitra One Levitra tablet should be taken at least 30-60 mins before intercourse. The tablet will only work if you're sexually aroused. The tablets should only be taken when needed. The pill box/packet should be stored at room temperature. It is not advised to take more than one tablet in 24 hours for health reasons.

A dissolvable alternative is also available in the form of Levitra Orodispersible, which does not require the patient to swallow the tablet.

How long does Levitra last?

Levitra tends to peak around 30 minutes after taking the pill. For some men, Levitra can last for up to 5 hours after ingestion.

What dosages are available for Levitra?

Levitra (vardenafil) tablets come in several different low dosages. The one that is prescribed to you depends on your individual circumstances and medical history. For the majority of men, the standard dosage of 10mg is sufficient, however men who have certain health conditions or take particular medications are prescribed the lower dosages.

  • 5mg – Recommended for men over 65, as well as those who have side effects
  • 10mg – The is the standard dose
  • 20mg – This will be issued should the standard dose prove ineffectual

It is important to be aware that there are no generic alternatives for Levitra (vardenafil) at the moment as the patent is still owned by Bayer. Any generic versions of this medication may be unsafe for use and all patients are strongly advised against using such generics.

What are the side effects of Levitra?

Many men who choose to buy Levitra tablets rarely experience any side effects, and even if they do, it is quite minimal, due to the low dose of the medicine. However, everyone is different and it is always helpful to know of any adverse reactions.

More common side effects include muscle or backache, headaches, indigestion, flushed face/rosacea-symptoms, nausea and congestion

Less common side effects include palpitations, stomach pain, insomnia and abnormal vision.

As the body becomes accustomed to the treatment, there is a higher chance that these side effects will cease. For further details about potential side effects of Levitra, please refer to the patient leaflet, which can be found near the bottom of this page.

What are the precautions/interactions for Levitra?

Levitra (vardenafil) can lower blood pressure, so drinking excess alcohol may sometimes increase this effect – leading to light-headedness, fainting and heart palpitations. Talk to your doctor about your alcohol consumption before taking vardenafil. Alcohol can make it more difficult to achieve an erection, so it's always recommended to drink moderately.

It is also advised to refrain from consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice whilst taking this medication. Grapefruit decreases the ability of your body to process vardenafil, meaning more than normal is in your bloodstream, possibly increasing side effects.

For more information about the interactions, please be sure to download our patient leaflet, located towards the bottom of the page. Additionally, go to the NHS resources site, which has a lot of valuable information about erectile dysfunction treatments. [2]
