Levitra is a stimulator of the natural sexual function of a man. This medicine is based on Vardenafil and has been created for men with erectile dysfunction in order to have a complete sexual life. Levitra increases a natural reaction to the sexual arousal even during the severest forms of the erectile dysfunction and helps a man to keep a hard erection during sexual intercourse.
The action of Levitra is restricted by time – 6-7 hours. But a man can have sex as many times as he wants within this period of time. Erection disappears after ejaculation but Levitra reduces a recovery time, and therefore a man is able to continue a sexual activity in 3-4 minutes.
A mechanism of the action of Vardenafil is based on the dilation of the blood vessels of the penis during the sexual arousal. Due to this, the tissues of the penis are filled with the blood and a man has erection quickly.
Levitra is prescribed for the treatment of the erectile dysfunction in men with pancreatic diabetes. But an advantage of the drug is a safety for men of old age. Unlike Cialis and Viagra, Levitra does not cause high blood pressure and does not cause tachycardia. Therefore, old men may take the drug without any restrictions, of they do not have a severe disease of the heart. The only precaution for old men is starting the treatment from a low dose of 5 mg per day.
Levitra does not cause a medical addiction, and a tolerance to the action of Vardenafil is not developed.
Levitra is produced in the pills that should be taken orally before a sexual intercourse. The pills should be taken with water. Do not use grape juice, or grapefruit juice. The pills should be used 15 minutes before intimacy. Food does not affect the uptake of Vardenafil into the intestine.
If you are new to this and have decided to take Levitra for the first time, start from a dose of 10 mg per day. This dose does not cause side effects and a complete action of Vardenafil may be felt.
If the side effects are absent during the use of Levitra 10 mg, a dose may be increased up to 20 mg per day but not more.
If you have discomfort or headache, try to reduce a dose up to 5 mg per day, and all side effects should be gone.
- The use of Levitra is prohibited if a man had myocardial infarction or stroke within the past year. Heart failure and uncontrolled arrhythmia are also a contraindication for the use. Therefore a cardiologist’s consultation is important before the treatment

It is hard to have an overdose during the use of Levitra but an individual body reaction cannot be predicted during the use of a very high dose. Men often have vomiting, diarrhea, dyspepsia, severe dizziness during the overdose. But other symptoms may happen as well. That is why, it is better not to exceed the maximal daily dose of 20 mg.
