LEVITRA (vardenafil HCl) is an FDA-approved oral prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. It belongs to a class of drugs called “PDE5 inhibitors.”
It works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help improve erectile function. The active ingredient in LEVITRA works specifically on the chain of events that occurs in the penis during arousal when two large chambers in a man’s penis fill with blood.
- It is available in 2.5-mg, 5-mg, 10-mg, and 20-mg tablets
- LEVITRA may be taken with or without food
- Take LEVITRA no more than once a day, at least 24 hours apart
- LEVITRA is taken orally, approximately 60 minutes before sexual activity
Forget the Rumors
- LEVITRA is not a magic pill or an aphrodisiac (a substance such as a food or drug that arouses or is believed to arouse sexual desire); it will not increase sexual desire
- It should not give you an instant erection; you’ll need to be sexually stimulated for it to work
- It should not leave you erect for hours. If an erection lasts more than 4 hours, get medical help right away
- LEVITRA works for many men with ED, but if it doesn’t work the first couple of times, ask your doctor about adjusting the dose
- LEVITRA works for many men with ED who also have a general range of conditions, including diabetes
- LEVITRA works for many men with ED, including those who have had a radical prostatectomy
