Erectile dysfunction is the major cause of stress among many men of the age 40 to 50. Though ED is a common problem prevailing in many men they get depressed or stressed up when they face such situation. They feel guilty of not being able to participate in a healthy sexual intercourse. But when medications to cure ED were found it became a demand in many men to avail them. Due to its demand, many more medications were invented to cure ED. Levitra, the brand name of Vardenafil is an oral medication taken by men who are affected by erectile dysfunction or impotence. This prescription pill was manufactured by Bayer pharmaceuticals and was approved by FDA in the year 2003 and it is the most popular ED medication and the improved version of all, which clearly shows that this pill overcomes the disadvantages of the medications that were invented earlier.
The pill belongs to a group of drugs called PDE5 (Phosphodiesterase5) inhibitors that work by preventing the enzyme PDE5 from functioning too fast in certain parts of the body especially in the genital part of men. Levitra increases the blood flow in the penis thus making it easy to attain and maintain an erection during the whole course of sexual activity. “Can men attain prolonged erection just by taking the pill?” is the most prevailing question coming to mind of people taking this pill for the first time. The answer would be no, as the pill can help a person to maintain an erection for longer duration of time but for the erection to happen there should be sexual arousal from the partner.
The pill comes in very low doses when compared to other ED medications. The pill has the half-life period of 4 to 5 hours. It is available in many online drug stores as well as traditional medical stores making it an easy option for men to procure them. One should not take this pill if he has consumed grape juice or alcohol as it causes complications and increases the effects of alcohol on them. Also, men who have heart, kidney, and liver problems are not supposed to take this pill as the inactive ingredient in the pill could cause harmful side effects. Because of its fast acting nature which is comparatively more than other ED drugs, Levitra is the most preferred medication by many men with ED when the well-known drug viagra fails to work.
Overdosage of any ED, medication should be reported to the doctor immediately as it may lead to complicated side effects. During clinical studies, some men were found to have tolerance to the maximum dosage of this pill of up to 80mg. A single dose of this pill, up to 40mg and multiple doses of 20mg once every day for a period of 4 weeks were found to be tolerable without producing any side effects. But when the same 40mg of this pill was taken twice daily it resulted in severe back pain. A person is supposed to get instantaneous help from his physician if he notices abnormal changes like blurred vision, muscle or back pain.
