Levitra, also known as vardenafil hydrochloride, is used in the treatment of sexual function problems such as erectile dysfunction and impotence.
This type of medication works by helping the blood flow to the penis in order to help the male achieve and maintain an erection. This type of medication should not be used by women or children.
Levitra comes in the form of oral tablets. These tablets should be taken as needed, with or without food, but should not be taken more than once every 24 hours. Always follow the directions provided on your prescription label.
Common side effects users may experience when taking Levitra include headache, upset stomach, flushing, heartburn, stuffy nose and other flu-like symptoms. If you experience extreme side effects such as an erection lasting longer than 4 hours or sudden loss of vision, contact your doctor for immediate assistance.
Occasionally, Levitra will be prescribed for other purposes, as suggested by your doctor.
