LEVITRA, one of the Most popular drugs on the Market today, to combat ED...

LEVITRA
Generic Name: vardenafil (var DEN a fil)
Brand Names: Levitra

For the next couple of posts we will cover the most popular drugs on the market today to combat ED. We are not endorsing any particular product just supplying information pertaining to the list drug. You should never use any of these drugs without first consulting with your doctor.


What is Levitra?
Levitra is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. It works by helping to relax muscles and increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation. This helps men to achieve and maintain an erection.

Levitra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence).

Levitra may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.


Important information about Levitra

Do not take Levitra if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. This includes nitroglycerin (Nitrostat, Nitrolingual, Nitro-Dur, Nitro-Bid, and others), isosorbide dinitrate (Dilatrate-SR, Isordil, Sorbitrate), and isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, ISMO, Monoket). Nitrates are also found in some recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). Taking Levitra with a nitrate medicine can cause a serious decrease in blood pressure, leading to fainting, stroke, or heart attack.

During sexual activity, if you become dizzy or nauseated, or have pain, numbness, or tingling in your chest, arms, neck, or jaw, stop and call your doctor right away. You could be having a serious side effect of Levitra.

Do not take Levitra more than once a day. Allow 24 hours to pass between doses. Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if your erection is painful or lasts longer than 4 hours. A prolonged erection (priapism) can damage the penis.

Levitra can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss. This has occurred in a small number of people taking Levitra, most of whom also had heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or certain pre-existing eye problems, and in those who smoke or are over 50 years old. It is not clear whether Levitra is the actual cause of vision loss.

Stop using Levitra and get emergency medical help if you have sudden vision loss.

Before taking Levitra

Do not take Levitra if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. This includes nitroglycerin (Nitrostat, Nitrolingual, Nitro-Dur, Nitro-Bid, and others), isosorbide dinitrate (Dilatrate-SR, Isordil, Sorbitrate), and isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, ISMO, Monoket). Nitrates are also found in some recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). Taking Levitra with a nitrate medicine can cause a serious decrease in blood pressure, leading to fainting, stroke, or heart attack.

Before taking Levitra, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or you have:

heart disease or heart rhythm problems;

a recent history (in the past 6 months) of a heart attack, angina (chest pain), or congestive heart failure;

a recent history of stroke or blood clots;

a personal or family history of "Long QT syndrome";

high or low blood pressure;

liver disease;

kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis);

a blood cell disorder such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia;

a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia;

a stomach ulcer;

retinitis pigmentosa (an inherited condition of the eye);

a physical deformity of the penis (such as Peyronie's disease); or

if you have been told you should not have sexual intercourse for health reasons.

If you have any of these conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take Levitra.

  5. There are quite a number of serious illnesses and medical problems that can contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction. Heart disease would be one of the most commonly cited conditions known for causing ED.

    The heart is what pumps blood and the penis requires its chambers to be filled with blood in order to become erect. When the heart is not operating in the optimal manner then it can be difficult to maintain a full erection.

    Other heart related issues such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure can contribute to erectile dysfunction causes.
