Levitra is one of the most famous drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Active ingredient Vardenafil was developed by Bayer Pharmaceutical Company and approved by the FDA in 2007. Levitra is FDE5 inhibitor, which stimulates erections by increasing blood flow in the penile cavernous bodies.
Bayer took into account all the disadvantages of Viagra and Cialis and created the most stable and safest drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
High intensity of circulation often causes side effects: dizziness, change in blood pressure and heartthrob. Molecular formula of Vardenafil is synthesized in such a way that the active ingredient gradually released into the bloodstream for several hours and supports stable circulation.
Action of Levitra is not as intense as that of counterparts, but the safety of this drug is much higher. A man can achieve the strongest erections without the adverse reactions with the gradual increase in circulation when he is sexually aroused.
Levitra is the best drug for preventing erectile dysfunction in older men. The average duration of 1 pill Levitra is 6-7 hours. During this time, optimum concentration of Vardenafil in the blood stimulates strong erections.
How and in what dosage should I take Levitra?
Levitra is available in tablets of 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg.
Optimal therapeutic effect is achieved with the low doses. For most men, it is enough to take 1 pill Levitra 10 mg per day.
In case of insufficient effect, dosage can be increased up to 20 mg Levitra per day.
Patients with chronic diseases of the cardiovascular system (mild and moderate), it is recommended to take 1 pill Levitra 5 mg and in case the adverse reactions aren’t noticed, the dose can be increased gradually up to 10 mg per day.
Levitra can be taken daily for basic therapy for erectile dysfunction, but do not forget that the effects of Vardenafil lasts for 6-7 hours, so better take pills just before sexual intercourse.
A single dosage of Levitra should be taken for 15-20 minutes before sexual intercourse, with small amounts of water. Even if you ate animal or vegetable fats, it does not affect the rate of absorption of Vardenafil from the intestines into the bloodstream.
There are not many examples of an overdose of Levitra in medical practice, but potentially there is the likelihood of overdose symptoms.
Levitra in high doses (more than 20 mg per day) and more than 1 times a day for a long period of time can lead to the accumulation of Vardenafil in the liver and blood, due to what the body can give a response.
Symptoms of overdose: vomiting, malaise, expressed pain, allergic reaction. When you see these symptoms, treatment should be temporarily discontinued.
Adverse reactions associated with taking Levitra are originated in individual cases. Most likely the standard side-effects that are typical for all PDE 5 inhibitors: headache, dizziness, pain in the stomach, facial redness, nasal congestion.
Side symptoms last for a short time and fade away on their own without medical intervention.
