Currently, it is the most effective drug in the fight against sexual dysfunction in men with a long period of action. The main component of the drug is vardenafil, a selective inhibitor of cGMP - specifically phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). This inhibitor not only significantly increases the time of action (up to 35 hours), but also acts exclusively selectively on the smooth muscles of the penis. The action of the drug is aimed at increasing blood flow in the genital organ, which causes an erection in men quite naturally.
It should be emphasized that Levitra does not belong to the hormonal group and does not affect the patient's psycho-emotional state. In the majority of reviews, patients point out precisely the prolonged up to 35 hours action of the Levitra 20mg components. This is achieved due to the large supply of blood to the cavernous bodies of the penis and blockage of its outflow. This ensures a physiological erection. The substances of Levitra are not aimed at enhancing arousal, they will only provide the patient with a natural erection, but the presence of sexual arousal, even when taking the medicine, is mandatory.
Like most powerful substances, Vardenafil intake should be limited to 18 years of age an dup. This is primarily due to the physiological processes in the body and the formation of a stable hormonal background. There are no more restrictions. And even with a variety of reasons for dysfunction (psychological, nervous, vascular), the drug is quite effective.
In most cases, the doctor prescribes a lower dosage in the first period of treatment. And it is quite reasonable because immediate switching to large doses is inappropriate in regard to side effects. Consultation with your doctor is especially important in the presence of pathologies of internal organs: heart, liver, kidneys, intestines. In addition, age also matters, and the drug intake should be controlled by a specialist to prevent side effects on the body.
But it is not worth worrying about the possible risks from taking the drug because despite the relatively low price, Levitra underwent testing. The following people with serious pathologies may be at risk and should not take the drug:
In some pathologies, medication is allowed after consultation with a doctor: cardiac arrhythmia, hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.
It is necessary to take Levitra on an empty stomach and for some time not to eat high-calorie foods because food can significantly reduce the absorbability of the drug into the blood.
It is worth starting with half a pill of Levitra 10mg. In case of ineffective action, gradually increase the dose, but remember, it cannot exceed 20mg per day.
