Levitra (generic name: Vardenafil) is a medication marketed by Bayer AG that belongs to a class of drugs known as PDE5 inhibitors which help men to achieve or maintain erections when sexually aroused. Other drugs that belong to this family of medicines include Viagra and Cialis, and like these other drugs, Levitra is legal and available in Australia or online with a prescription. Millions of Australian men have used it to treat their erectile dysfunction, restore their lost sex lives, and improve their overall happiness in life ever since the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) first approved it in Australia.
Levitra is an orange circular pill that comes in a variety of doses. The most common dosage most men start with is a 10mg dose. This can be increased or decreased as needed for most men but it’s important to never exceed 20mg in one day and people who take less than 5mg may not experience any noticeable benefits at all. Aside from the 10mg dose, it’s available in tablets of 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 20mg.
How Levitra Works:
Levitra works as a vasodilator, which means that it helps to widen the blood vessels in a man’s body to provide more blood flow to the penis. It should normally be taken about 1 hour to 30 minutes before having sex and it’s effect on the body usually lasts for about 5 to 6 hours. This is typically longer than Viagra which is known for lasting about 4 hours on average. Levitra has a reputation as being less sensitive to food intake than Viagra as well. This means that while it’s best to take it on an empty stomach, you can still eat a light meal or drink a glass of milk before taking it and should still experience most of the same benefits as you normally would on an empty stomach.
As for other potential benefits over other erectile dysfunction medications, there have been a few studies that show Levitra may be favored by some people for a few reasons. For example, in one study published in the January 2005 edition of the medical journal Expert Opinion on Pharmacotherapy, researchers determined that Levitra does not have the side effect of altering color perception in users which sometimes, though rarely, happens in Viagra users. Another major study, published in the September 2005 issue of Clinical Therapeutics, showed very positive findings towards Levitra. Researchers in that study were trying to determine if Levitra could possibly help men achieve erections who were not responsive to Viagra. They found that about 62% of men in the study were able to achieve erections and a large majority of them continued to see benefits of the drug 6 hours after their initial dose.
But just like any other prescription medication, Levitra can have side effects and should not be taken by men who have cardiovascular problems or have had a history of heart disease. The most common side effects reported by most users include flushing, headache, stuffy nose, slight nausea, and heartburn or upset stomach. Levitra is generally a safe medication for most people in Australia, but if you experience any other side affects aside from these which you feel may not be normal, it’s important you speak to a doctor immediately.
