Levitra package leaflet
Things you need to know
This package leaflet provides general information on Levitra 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg tablets. Be sure to read the package leaflet carefully before using this medicine. If you have any questions after consulting this information, please contact a doctor or pharmacist.
This leaflet answers some common questions about Levitra, including:
1. What is Levitra and what is it used for?
Levitra is an erection-stimulating medicine that is used to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also referred to as impotence. Men with ED cannot get an erection, even when aroused. This can make it difficult or impossible to have sexual intercourse or any other gratifying sexual activities. Levitra contains the active ingredient vardenafil which temporarily restores the ability to get an erection. It works by improving blood flow to the penis, which results in the penis becoming rigid and erect in response to sexual stimulation.
2. What you need to know before using Levitra
There are a few things that you should take into consideration before using Levitra:
- Do not use this medicine if you are allergic to vardenafil, with any form of nitrate medication, or if you have low blood pressure or a heart, liver or eye condition.
- This medicine may interact with other medicines. It is therefore important to mention what other medicines you are taking during the online consultation.
- A full stomach can cause this medicine to take effect in a delayed way.
- This medicine may cause side effects such as dizziness. Use caution when driving or performing tasks requiring alertness.
For more information, read the Levitra package leaflet on our product page.
3. How to use Levitra
Levitra should be taken with some liquid about half an hour before sexual activity. Levitra produces an erection in response to sexual stimulation up to four to five hours after taking the dose. Taking Levitra on an empty stomach has the most dramatic effect on sexual performance. To reduce the risk of serious side effects, you should not take more than one tablet a day. Do not use Levitra more than three times a week. Alcohol is known to impair the ability to get an erection. It is therefore advisable to reduce or stop drinking alcohol altogether while taking this medicine.

This medicine may cause side effects. Possible side effects include:
- facial flushing;
- gastrointestinal problems;
