About Levitra


Levitra (manufactured by Bayer), also known as vardenafil, is very closely related to similar erectile dysfunction treatments, sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis) and avanafil (Spedra). Levitra has a very slight molecular difference to Viagra/sildenafil, giving it a longer effect.

What does it do?

Levitra is the trade name for vardenafil. It is a PDE5 inhibitor. The PDE5 enzyme is involved in the regulation of blood flow in the penis, particularly during erections. By inhibiting the PDE5 enzyme, blood flow to the penis is increased during sexual stimulation. Arousal is still required before Levitra will work. It is taken to support sexual performance and to promote healthy sexual relationships.

Levitra is also sometimes used as a treatment for premature ejaculation, significantly increasing the duration of sexual intercourse before ejaculation, although Levitra is not licensed in the UK for this use.

Why do men get erectile dysfunction?

There are a variety of factors that can lead to erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be, but is by no means always, a sign of impaired circulation. It should always be reported to a doctor.

Some causes are related to lifestyle choices such as smoking, drug use and excessive drinking. In other cases, the cause can be psychological. Emotional problems such as performance anxiety and even stress can negatively impact erectile function.

On rare occasions erectile dysfunction can be occur after operation or injuries. If this is the case, medication might not be effective and an operation or implant may be required.

Why choose Levitra?

Levitra usually remains effective for 4-5 hours. This doesn't mean that erections will be continuous during this period, rather that erections are likely to be improved with arousal during that time-frame.

Alternative treatment

Cialis/tadalafil, Viagra/sildenafil, and Spedra are alternative tablet treatments for erectile dysfunction and are also available to buy in various strengths and pack sizes after completing the same medical consultation.

Taking Levitra for the first time

Levitra is available in three strengths: 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg doses. The usual starting dose is 10mg taken 1 to 2 hours before an erection is required. 10mg of Levitra is equivalent to around 50mg of Viagra. Levitra should not be taken more than once daily.

Levitra 10mg orodispersible tablets are a dissolvable form of vardenafil that has a faster onset of action than a pill which is swallowed.

Does it work every time?

The effects of PDE5 inhibitors are usually consistent and predictable. Generally, if Levitra has worked before, it will work every time.

If the cause of erectile dysfunction is psychological, specialist treatment may be required - such as cognitive behavioural therapy or counselling.

Erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of serious underlying health conditions such as atherosclerosis and heart disease. Any trouble with erectile performance should be taken to a doctor for a full assessment.

Are there any side effects of Levitra?

Most men will not experience side effects when taking Levitra. Side effects can include congestion, headache, dizziness and sometimes muscle pain.

On rare occasions, erectile dysfunction medication produces prolonged and painful erections, a condition called a priapism. If left untreated this can cause permanent damage to the penis and medical attention should be sought immediately if an erection lasts more than 2 hours.

When not to take Levitra

Levitra is contraindicated in men with a history of angina, recent heart attack, recent stroke, high or low blood pressure and a range of less common medical conditions. There is no upper age limit for the use of Levitra.

Some medications interact with Levitra, particularly a type of medicines used to treat angina, known as nitrates. The combination of Levitra and nitrates can result in significant episodes of low blood pressure.

There is a very rare theoretical risk of abnormal heart rhythm if Levitra (vardenafil) is taken at the same time as some other medications - please check this list.

Dr Fox online consultations check for contraindications and interactions before prescriptions can be issued.

Levitra FAQs

Why do men need to see a doctor before starting ED treatment?

ED has multiple causes, some of which can be reversed. High blood pressure, diabetes, and raised cholesterol can all contribute to ED, as can numerous medical conditions including stress and psychosexual difficulties. Men with ED need to see their doctors face-to-face for a full assessment and possibly for tests. It is fine to obtain repeat supplies of Levitra or other treatments online, but this does not replace a face-to-face consultation.

What strength tablets should I start with?

The usual starting dose of Levitra is one middle strength tablet of 10mg as a single dose in 24 hours. This same dose should be tried at least four times before deciding to increase to the higher dose of 20mg. Men over 65 years or who are in generally poor health may be advised to start at the lower dose of one 5mg tablet. The maximum dose is one 20mg tablet in 24 hours.
Compare erectile dysfunction tablets

Can I take Levitra and other ED tablets at the same time?

No, these medicines all work in the same way. Taking a combination of them will not produce stronger erections. It will however increase the risks of side effects. Leave a gap of at least 24 hours between taking Levitra and taking a different ED medicine.

How long does Levitra work and how frequently can I take it?

Levitra remains active for 4-5 hours. Leave a gap between one tablet and the next of at least 24 hours.

Can I drink alcohol with Levitra?

Yes, but only a small amount of one or two units. Alcohol is a depressant which reduces the strength of erections and this will counteract the action of medicines taken to treat ED. Alcohol in all but small quantities is also likely to increase some Levitra side effects, particularly low blood pressure.

Can I take Levitra with other prescription medicines?

Levitra can be taken with most prescription medicines. However there are a number of prescription medicines which interact with Levitra, which can make it ineffective or lead to adverse side effects. Most notably Levitra should not be taken by men taking 'nitrates' used to treat heart disease and angina. Checks are carried out during online consultations for interacting medicines. A full list of interacting medicines can be found in the patient information leaflet supplied with the tablets.

Will Levitra cause unwanted erections?

No, Levitra and the other commonly used ED medicines, Viagra and Cialis, support natural erections. After taking the tablet, sexual arousal and stimulation needs to be present before an erection will occur. Without this stimulation it remains inactive.

Can I break Levitra tablets into smaller pieces and take part tablets?

Generally no but in practice many men do! The manufacturer's advice is that Levitra tablets are not suitable to be split, and patients should use the minimum effective dose as a whole tablet. Levitra tablets are film-coated (except the orodispersible versions), however this is not an extended or delayed release coating (to achieve delayed absorption), so tablets should actually be safe to split, in order to take a lower dose. It is also suggested that tablet 'halves' may not contain equal doses but in reality any discrepancy is likely to be minimal. Levitra tablets are not 'scored' with an indented line in the middle of the tablet, so ensuring an even break is difficult and also the 'halves' may crumble. Purchasing a pill-splitter can help the process.

Can I get Levitra on the NHS?

GPs and NHS specialists can prescribe Levitra on the NHS, but only limited amounts on a strict eligibility basis. NHS prescription fees apply.

What should I do if Levitra does not work or stops working?

Levitra is usually an effective treatment, and usually works consistently each time. The same dose should work over a period of years. The body does not get used to the tablets and they should not become less effective. However, sometimes the situation where the tablet is taken may not be right and the results may sometimes be disappointing. In this situation it is best to try the same dose again. Only increase the dose if the previous dose has not worked on several occasions. If response to treatment continues to be poor consult your regular doctor face-to-face. There may have been a progression in the underlying cause of the ED or some other new factor may need looking at.
