One of the popular oral prescription drugs to treat ED or erectile dysfunction in men is Vardenafil, better known as Levitra. The drug is in tablet form and available in 5gms, 10gms, and 20gms that are recommended to be taken 30-60 minutes before sexual intercourse.
Viagra was the first drug developed to treat ED with Levitra Vardenafil following a close second. Both drugs are PDE-5 inhibitors that aid in increasing the blood flow and relaxing the muscles in the penis in order to make it achieve and maintain an erection.
Compared to Viagra, Vardenafil reports lesser side effects incidence, but basically when it does happen it shows the same things such as dizziness, congested nose, flushing, headache, stomach upset, and indigestion. The side effects are further exacerbated when taken with certain medicines and alcohol. Vardenafil side effects are more likely to happen when you are more than 65 years old. The side effects are temporary and go away after the drug has been flushed out of your system. If they persist after 24 hours, see a doctor immediately.
Vardenafil should not be used by men who have suffered strokes or heart attacks for the past 6 months and other health conditions such as end-stage renal disease that is undergoing dialysis treatments, angina pectoris, and serious liver problems. If you are taking other forms of medication, see your doctor before you decide to use Vardenafil.
Using Vardenafil will not let you get an erection without any sexual stimulation. Vardenafil helps a man achieve an erection by increasing the blood flow to the penis which is made possible when muscles are relaxed and proteins are processed slowly in the body. Some men have claimed that using Vardenafil has increased the size of their penis although there have been no reports to verify if this is possible.
Erectile dysfunction will not be cured by Vardenafil. The drug will not also give you sexual desire. Vardenafil is not an aphrodisiac. It will not be a protective barrier against STDs or sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, HIV nor will it act as a male contraceptive that will prevent pregnancy. Vardenafil will not give long-term sexual function changes and is not addictive.
Vardenafil Levitra have spent millions of dollars along with Cialis and Viagra which are its competitors, not only to promote the product, but also to raise awareness of the ED or erectile dysfunction problem that affects almost 50% of men over age 40 at a certain time in their life. Online pharmacies offer Vardenafil and its other generic versions which have led to price drops as much as 30%.
Yet, it should always be remembered that a doctor has to be consulted even if the drug is readily available online. Notwithstanding the side effects, the drug may not be for you as you might have other health complications that need to be examined by the doctor before the drug could be prescribed. Another thing would be your erectile dysfunction problem. This might stem from an emotional or medical problem that could get you back to normal sexual activity when it is resolved without having to take any drug.
