FDA Approves Bayer Healthcare's Levitra
Levitra is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor.
It works by helping to relax muscles and increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation. This helps men to achieve and maintain an erection.
Levitra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence).
LEVITRA (vardenafil HCI) is an FDA-approved oral prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. It is available in 2.5-mg, 5-mg, 10-mg, and 20-mg tablets and is taken about 1 hour prior to sexual activity. Take LEVITRA no more than once a day.
What LEVITRA does:
LEVITRA helps increase blood flow to the penis, so it may help men with ED get and keep an erection that lasts long enough for sexual activity. Once a man has completed sexual activity, blood flow to his penis should decrease and his erection should go away
LEVITRA has been clinically shown to improve erectile function, even in men who had other health factors, like high cholesterol1, high blood pressure2, or diabetes
Many men taking LEVITRA reported having greater success than men taking placebo (sugar pill) at maintaining their erections long enough for sexual activity
