Main things to know about Levitra
Important information needed before taking Levitra
Levitra (active ingredient Vardenafil) comes from pharmaceutical manufacturer Bayer and is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men.
Levitra was branded as an alternative treatment to others for erectile dysfunction such as Cialis and Viagra, the supposed advantage being that patients experience fewer side effects from taking this tablet. The effects of the treatment typically last for 5/6 hours. Large numbers of patients have reported that there are indeed fewer side effects compared with other treatments, though, in truth, this really depends on the individual.
Health care advice for those taking Levitra
Levitra is used to treat men who suffer from erectile dysfunction, otherwise known as impotence. Patients who have this condition are unable to achieve an erection sufficient for a satisfactory sexual encounter. The cause can be attributed to several factors, both physical and psychological.
The active ingredient in Levitra is vardenafil and when patients take a tablet vardenafil helps to relax the blood vessels in the penis, thus increasing blood flow, which helps a man achieve and subsequently maintain an erection.
Levitra will only work after sexual stimulation.
What are the recommended Levitra dosages
Levitra is available from PharmaDoctor in dosages of 5mg, 10mg and 20mg. Generally, the recommended initial dosage would be 10mg, with patients advised to increase the dose should the effects prove too weak or move down to 5mg should the effects/side effects prove too strong.
Depending on a patient's medical history a doctor may limit the dosage.
Levitra will begin to work between 25-60 minutes after taking a pill and, as mentioned before, only after sexual stimulation. The effects of the treatment usually last for around 5 hours, meaning that Levitra can help a patient to achieve an erection at any point during this arc of time.
Levitra does not have to be taken on an empty stomach though the effects may be delayed if a patient eats a heavy meal before taking a tablet. Patients must not drink alcohol when they use Levitra as it can impede the effects of the treatment.
Never exceed the recommended dosage.
What are the side effects when taking Levitra?
As is the case with all medication, some patients do report a number of negative side effects from taking Levitra, some of the most common being:
- Reddening of the face
- Runny or blocked nose
- Sensitivity to light or blurred vision
Mild side effects are common but you should consult the doctor immediately if you are worried about any of them. It may be the case that an alternative treatment could be more suitable.
How can you store Levitra?
Store the treatment in a cool, dry place and keep out of the way of children.
Do not, under any circumstances give this treatment to anybody else to try regardless of whether they report the same symptoms as you or not.
Do not keep or take out of date medication; take it to your local pharmacy where they will be able to dispose of it safely.
