Treating erectile dysfunction with Levitra

Treating erectile dysfunction with Levitra

Levitra is the brand name for Vardenafil, manufactured by Bayer. Levitra is in a group of medications called PDE5 inhibitors. The PDE5 enzyme helps regulate blood flow in the penis. Inhibiting it increases blood flow to the penis during sexual arousal and stimulation. It is thus usually used for erectile dysfunction.

There are many causes of erectile dysfunction. The most common cause is impaired circulation, which is what Levitra addresses. Some other causes may be abuse of alcohol, tobacco, or certain illegal drugs, stress, certain injuries or surgeries, or psychological issues. If taking Levitra does not help you, seek the assistance of a medical specialist.

Levitra is also sometimes used “off label” as a treatment for premature ejaculation because it can increase how long a user lasts before the climax.


Because it dissolves in your mouth and not in your stomach, Levitra is faster-acting than pills you swallow. Levitra commonly remains effective for 4-5 hours, during which your ability to get and maintain an erection with stimulation is improved.

The effects of PDE5 inhibitors, such as Levitra, are usually consistent. If Levitra has worked for you before, it will work every time that you take it.

Levitra works best when paired with lifestyle changes, like avoiding alcohol and managing stress.

How to take Levitra

Levitra normally comes in 5mg, 10mg, or 20mg single-dose dissolving pills or coated tablets. The standard dose is 10mg, but you may need more or less. 20mg is the largest recommended dose per 24 hours.

Take Levitra with a glass of water at least 25 to 60 minutes before sex.

Side effects of Sildenafil (Levitra)

Most men will not experience side effects from taking Levitra, but some do. Side effects include congestion, headache, dizziness, and sometimes muscle pain. Some side effects can be avoided or eased by using a lower dosage.

Overdose usually involves some or all of these effects. Call your doctor promptly if you take too much Levitra.

Safety of Levitra: Is it safe to take Levitra?

Levitra is generally safe and effective for adult men of any age, including advanced age. It is FDA-approved in the USA, approved in the UK by the MHRA, and approved by most health regulatory agencies in other countries.

Some men are sensitive or even allergic to this drug or have conditions or other medications that don’t mix well with it. Here’s what to watch out for:

  • If you experience priapism, a single, often painful erection that lasts longer than two hours, tell your doctor immediately. Priapism may cause permanent damage if untreated.
  • Rarely, someone may be allergic to Levitra. Watch out for signs, such as nausea, swelling, and difficulty breathing, the first time you take this drug.
  • A small number of people experience sudden partial vision or hearing loss from taking Levitra. If either happens to you, stop taking it and call your doctor.
  • Do not drink grapefruit juice, eat large, greasy meals, smoke cannabis, or drink alcohol while taking Levitra.
  • Do not take other drugs in this class while on Levitra. Here is a list of other medications you should avoid while on Levitra.
  • Levitra shouldn’t be used by men with heart problems such as fast or irregular heartbeat, blood pressure issues, chest pains, or a recent heart attack or stroke. Men with heart problems have reported severe circulatory symptoms after taking Levitra, including irregular heartbeat, fainting, blood pressure drops, heart attack, and stroke. These are potentially deadly conditions that need emergency care.
