Levitra Oral Uses
Vardenafil is used to treat male sexual function problems (impotence or erectile dysfunction). In combination with sexual stimulation, vardenafil helps blood flow into the penis to achieve and maintain an erection. This medication works by blocking a certain enzyme (phosphodiesterase-PDE5) in the body and belongs to a class of drugs known as PDE5 inhibitors.
This drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis). Practice "safe sex" such as using latex condoms. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
How To Use Levitra Oral
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking vardenafil and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Take this medication as directed by your doctor, usually as needed. Take vardenafil, with or without food, about 1 hour before sexual activity. Do not take more than once daily.
Dry your hands before handling this medication. Remove the dose from the blister package right before use. Place the tablet on your tongue and allow it to dissolve completely. Do not crush or split the tablet. This medication should not be taken with liquid.
Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using this medication unless your doctor or pharmacist says you may do so safely. Grapefruit can increase the chance of side effects with this medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
Vardenafil disintegrating tablets are absorbed differently in the body than vardenafil film-coated tablets. Do not switch from one to the other without consulting your doctor.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve.
