Levitra is a highly successful oral erectile dysfunction treatment drug. The drug helps men with impotence enjoy the bliss of penetrative sex with their partner and reignite their love life.
Why men prefer Levitra?
Levitra was launched in 2003, 5 years after the successful release of Viagra. It faced tough competition from the start as Viagra was already firmly established in the impotence treatment drug market by that time. Levitra nevertheless created a good market-share for itself owing to the several advantages it had over Viagra.
Levitra acts faster and remains effective for a longer period of time as compared to Viagra. While Viagra becomes effective in 60 minutes and remains effective for up to 4 hours, Levitra acts within 30-60 minutes and remains effective for up to 5 hours. Besides, Levitra needs to be taken in lower dosage strengths of 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg and 20mg whereas Viagra is available in the dosage strengths of 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. Hence, the chances of experiencing side effects are much lower with Levitra as compared to Viagra.
Another reason why many men, suffering from impotence, prefer to take Levitra is that this drug has been shown to be effective and is well-tolerated in a broad range of men including those men who suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, spinal cord injury, depression and in those who have had their prostate gland removed. Levitra is also reported to have a high first time success rate. A study showed that 74% of impotence patients achieve full sexual intercourse with their first Levitra tablet. According to recent researches, first dose efficacy is the most important treatment attribute, alongside speed of action for men suffering from impotence. This assures men that their condition is treatable and helps them regain confidence.
What is impotence?
Impotence is a common sexual problem that affects a large number of men across the world. Men suffering from impotence face a consistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection long enough to complete sexual intercourse. Though all men face performance failure at some point in their lives, if the problem occurs on a consistent basis it severely affects their quality of life. Men usually associate their sexual prowess with their virility; therefore, not being able to perform is a serious blow to their manliness and hence, they suffer from low self-esteem. Impotence also affects a man’s relationship with his partner and sometimes relationships may come to an end because of the absence of sex. Erection problems are common in elderly men above 65 years of age; this is because they are more likely to suffer from conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure that may interfere with the complex process of erection. Thanks to the availability of drugs like Levitra, men with impotence can now enjoy sex by just taking a pill when the need arises.
How Levitra helps in impotence treatment?
The active ingredient in Levitra is called vardenafil; it belongs to the same class of medicines as Viagra and Cialis called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors and hence, all the three medicines essentially work in the same way. The action of Levitra causes the smooth muscle in the penis to relax allowing more blood to rush into the genital organ. As a PDE-5 inhibitor, Levitra vardenafil prevents the action of the PDE-5 enzyme which is responsible for the breakdown of cGMP. This results in an improved blood flow to the penis helping a man to maintain an erection. Levitra does not cause an erection on its own; sexual stimulation is required to help men achieve an erection.
Levitra is an FDA approved drug and is proven, safe and effective treatment for impotence. However, following precautions must be taken while using Levitra –
- Always take Levitra after consulting a doctor; consultation can either be face-to-face or via an online clinic
- Inform the doctor about your medical conditions and any type of prescription or non- prescription medicines that you are taking
- Tell your doctor if you suffer from allergies or have a known sensitivity to any of the components of Levitra
- Never use Levitra or any other PDE5 medicines if you take any form of nitrate medicines that are often prescribed for chest pain
- Inform your doctor if you suffer from rare Levitra side effects such as priapism (erections lasting longer than 4 hours) or if any other Levitra side effect becomes bothersome
