The Levitra (also known as vardenafil HCI) is used primarily to treat erectile dysfunction.
Available in 10mg and 20mg doses, Levitra is used to treat male sexual function problems (impotence or erectile dysfunction). In combination with sexual stimulation, Levitra works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection.
- Levitra (vardenafil HCI) belongs to a class of drugs called “PDE5 inhibitors.” It works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help improve erectile function. The active ingredient in Levitra works specifically on the chain of events that occurs in the penis during arousal, when two large chambers in a man’s penis fill with blood.
- Levitra (vardenafil HCI) is an FDA-approved oral prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. It is available in 2.5-mg, 5-mg, 10-mg, and 20-mg tablets and is taken about 1 hour prior to sexual activity.
- Levitra helps increase blood flow to the penis, so it may help men with ED get and keep an erection that lasts long enough for sexual activity. Once a man has completed sexual activity, blood flow to his penis should decrease and his erection should go away
- Levitra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function, even in men who had other health factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes
- Many men taking Levitra reported having greater success than men taking placebo (sugar pill) at maintaining their erections long enough for sexual activity
Levitra is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. It works by helping to relax muscles and increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation. This helps men to achieve and maintain an erection.
