What is Levitra
Levitra, also known as Vardenafil, is a medicine that is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), which is the inability to get or maintain an erection. The causes of ED are varied but can include medical conditions, such as diabetes, hormonal problems and psychological conditions such as stress and depression. It can also be a side effect of certain medications. In some instances, a change in lifestyle can help you achieve an erection such as losing weight and cutting down on alcohol or quitting smoking.
If you have found that these natural treatments have not helped, then Levitra can help you to regain control of your erections so you can enjoy a satisfying sex life. If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction Levitra allows the penis to become hard more easily and stay hard for the duration of intercourse. It may also be effective in the treatment of premature ejaculation, which is where ejaculation occurs too quickly during sexual intercourse.
It is important to note that there’s no need to worry about embarrassing or unwanted erections as the drug does not take effect unless you are sexually stimulated.
Can I take other ED medications with Levitra
You will only be prescribed one kind of ED medication at a time but if you find that Levitra is not working for you then consult your GP or Click Pharmacy doctor to discuss other options.
Can I buy Levitra online?
It can be purchased online after you have completed a quick questionnaire. Your answers will be assessed by one of our doctors and they will ensure that this medication will be safe and appropriate for your personal situation. In some cases, other medication can interfere with the effectiveness of Levitra and certain medical conditions can be affected negatively by it, and in these situations, our doctors can find you the best, alternative treatment.
Once you have completed your assessment and been given a prescription you can order your medication anytime online without filling it in again, though you are welcome to book a free, online appointment with our experts to discuss your prescription anytime.
What dose should I choose?
Your dosage requirements depend on your condition, how you respond to treatment and any other medications you are taking. You should consult your doctor or one of our specialists at Click Pharmacy for advice about what dose is right for you.
How effective is Levitra
Levitra’s effects will last for around 4 to 6 hours which is similar to Viagra. One of its benefits though is that it can be as effective when taken with food as without. Other erectile dysfunction medications work best on an empty stomach or when taken only with a light, low-fat meal, which is not always a realistic choice.
It has been seen to be effective in up to 70% of men suffering from ED and it has been demonstrated in certain studies that it is more effective for those with diabetes whereas others cannot be taken by anyone suffering from ED and diabetes.
How should I take Levitra?
Levitra should be taken orally, approximately 25-60 minutes before sexual activity and it should not be taken more than once a day. You should be able to achieve an erection for anywhere up to five hours with sexual stimulation once you have taken this medication.
There should be at least 24 hours between each dose and it is ideally ingested on an empty stomach or after a light, low fat meal.
How does Levitra work?
Levitra inhibits PDE5, an enzyme that acts on cGMP, a substance that regulates the flow of blood to the penis. In simpler terms, it allows for the relaxation of the muscles in the veins supplying blood to the penis, thereby making an erection possible during sexual arousal.
Can I take other medications with Levitra
Levitra must not be used with a number of other products including over-the-counter treatments, herbal products and vitamins.
Some products which can interfere with the effectiveness of Levitra, or cause dangerous side effects when mixed include:
- Nitrate, medicines for angina, or nitric oxide donors, such as amyl nitrite.
- Medicine for the treatment of arrhythmias such as quinidine, procainamide, amiodarone or sotalol
- Medicines for HIV, ritonavir or indinavir.
- Ketoconazole or itraconazole, anti-fungal medicines
- Erythromycin or clarithromycin, macrolide antibiotics
- Alpha-blockers, a type of medicine used to treat high blood pressure and enlargement of the prostate (as benign prostatic hyperplasia)
Speak to your GP or Click Pharmacy doctor about medication you take or any health issues you are experiencing before purchasing Levitra.
What is the difference between Levitra & Viagra
Levitra has been shown to work faster than Viagra with some patients claiming to have been able to have sex within 16 minutes after taking the medication.
In terms of a difference in side effects, Levitra does not list nausea, visions changes and muscle aches as common side effects, whereas Viagra does. The other main difference is that Levitra can be taken with a meal whereas Viagra can be negatively affected by food causing a decrease in its effectiveness.
Can you drink alcohol with Levitra?
Alcohol can affect your ability to get and sustain an erection and when used with Levitra, it can decrease its ability to work. If you are planning on taking this product to help you have sexual intercourse, it is not recommended that you drink.
What are the side effects of Levitra?
There is a possibility of side effects inherent in the use of any medication. Common side effects of Levitra include headaches, nasal stuffiness, dizziness and flushing.
There can be more uncommon side effects and with Levitra this includes issues with sleep, visual disturbances, heart palpitations and stomach upsets. You should speak to your doctor or consult one of our specialists at Click Pharmacy should you require any further advice.
