General information about Levira (Vardenafil)
As the active ingredient of Levitra which is Vardenafil inhibits the PDE5 enzyme. This enzyme can cause muscle walls of blood vessels to contract and decrease the blood flow towards the penis. Blocking it makes the blood vessels open up, allowing more blood to flow towards the penis during periods of sexual arousal. This results into a firm erection and enables the user to engage in sexual intercourse.
Presently Levitra is the only ED treatment that is licensed to contain Vardenafil as an active substance in the UK.
How does Levitra work?
Vardenafil is a PDE-5 in inhibitor leading to relaxation of the blood vessels around the penis. This results into an increase of blood flow towards the penis during moments of sexual excitement, causing stronger erections.
When should I take Levitra and how long can it last?
Levitra starts to work about 30 minutes after you have taken the tablet. Therefore you should plan ahead when intending to engage in sexual intercourse. The effect will last for a period of about 4 hours, similar to Viagra. Your penis will not be erected for the entire time, but you will be more responsive if you are sexually aroused while the treatment is working. If your erection exceeds four hours, seek medical attention immediately.
What is the appropriate dose of Levitra for me?
Four different doses of Levitra are available: 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg and 20mg.
Depending on your condition, the doctor will decide on the appropriate dosage, taking your tolerance for the main ingredient and its effect concerning your ED into account. However, the typical starting does are 10mg. This dosage usually allows a significant result while minimizing side effects. Do not take more than one tablet a day. If the medication does not provide the desired result, please consult the doctor again.
What is Erectile-dysfunction?
Erectile-dysfunction is a type of sexual dysfunction, causing the inability to gain or maintain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. This condition is more common with men above the age of 40 and can be a consequence of type-2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
Nevertheless men of younger age groups can develop symptoms as well. However, the condition is often traced back to psychological issues, such as the pressure of satisfying the partner, especially in a new relationship.
Who can take Levitra?
It can be used by men of all age groups who suffer from erectile dysfunction. The cause of this condition alters depending on the age group though. With young men it can often be traced back to psychological issues, with older men it can come as a symptom of ageing.
