WHAT IS VARDENAFIL?

Vardenafil, also known by the brand name of “Levitra”, is a prescription medicine scientifically formulated to treat erectile dysfunction, making it easier for you to get and maintain an erection. Vardenafil has the same active ingredient as Levitra, and is approved by the MHRA to effectively treat ED. Having erectile problems during sex can be completely normal, even for young men. So trust vardenafil and relax.

HOW DOES VARDENAFIL WORK?

Vardenafil relaxes the blood vessels that supply your penis, allowing more blood flow to the area to help you maintain a firmer erection during sex. This process relies on a chemical called nitric oxide. Vardenafil is part of a group of medications called PDE5 inhibitors, which help you increase the levels of nitric oxide in your body. The medicine will not increase your desire for sex. That’s on you. Vardenafil also won’t resolve the underlying physical cause of your ED.

HOW TO USE VARDENAFIL

The usual starting dose is 10mg taken about 25 to 60 minutes before sex. The tablet should be swallowed whole with a little water. Taking the tablet with a meal, particularly a high-fat meal, may delay its absorption and it could take longer to work. You should only take one tablet in 24 hours and never combine with other ED meds.

HOW LONG DOES VARDENAFIL LAST?

Vardenafil is usually taken 25 minutes to an hour before sex and it only works if you are sexually aroused. Vardenafil may remain effective for up to 4-5 hours after taking it. Some foreplay prior to sexual activity is required. Then the erection will go away as it usually does after sex.

FAQ
What is generic Levitra?

Vardenafil is the active ingredient in Levitra, so the two medications are medically the same. Vardenafil is the generic name for Levitra and it is sometimes called ‘generic Levitra’. Levitra was originally manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Bayer. Bayer’s patent expired in 2018 which meant that other drug manufacturers could start producing cheaper generic versions of the medication using the generic name.

How effective is vardenafil?

Vardenafil is a very effective medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Many men find that it works quicker than other ED medications, however, if you have eaten a large meal or drank more than 1 or 2 units of alcohol you may find that vardenafil takes longer to work or may be less effective.

How to take vardenafil?

The usual starting dose for most men is 10mg.  If you have liver problems a lower starting dose of 5mg is recommended, which may be increased to 10mg depending on your response. The tablet should be swallowed whole with water around 25 to 60 minutes before you plan to have sex. Taking the tablet with a meal, particularly a high-fat meal, may delay its absorption and it could take longer to work. You must be sexually aroused for vardenafil to work. The time taken to get an erection differs from person to person and is usually achieved after 25 minutes but could take up to 4-5 hours. Vardenafil may not be effective the first time you try it. We recommend trying the same dose a few times before increasing the dose or changing your dose.

Can I use vardenafil with alpha-blockers or nitrates?

If you are taking alpha-blocking medications, you should wait at least 6 hours between taking them and vardenafil.

Vardenafil is not suitable for men taking nicorandil or nitrate-based medications such as GTN spray or isosorbide mononitrate tablets for angina.

Can I use vardenafil with alcohol?

A small amount of alcohol shouldn’t impact the effectiveness of vardenafil, however, you should avoid drinking too much alcohol as this may make it more difficult for the drug to work, and can increase the risk of side effects.

Can I take vardenafil more than once a day?

No, you should not take vardenafil more than once a day. Taking more tablets than you should increases your risk of serious side effects. If you think the medicine strength is too weak or is not working, speak to us and our doctors may increase the dose for you.

Can I take vardenafil daily?

Vardenafil is not designed to be taken as a daily tablet. If you plan to have sex several times a week, you may find that a lower dose of tadalafil may suit you better. Lower dosages of tadalafil can be taken daily to maintain consistent levels of the medication in your bloodstream. Speak to our doctors to find out more.

Can I drive after taking vardenafil?

It is recommended that you avoid driving after taking vardenafil as some men have reported cases of dizziness.

What are the side effects of vardenafil?

Vardenafil is generally a safe and well-tolerated medication, however like all medications side effects are possible. Some of the more common side effects reported include headaches, dizziness, indigestion, facial flushing and nasal congestion. For more information on side effects, please read the patient information leaflet.

What should I do if vardenafil doesn't work or stops working for me?

You may find that vardenafil is less effective if you have taken it after eating a large meal or drinking more than 1 – 2 units of alcohol. Psychological factors can also impact its effectiveness such as if you are feeling particularly anxious or stressed. Remember that you must be relaxed and sexually aroused for vardenafil to work. If vardenafil stops working for you, we recommend trying the medication a few times before changing the dosage or switching to a different medication. Please get in touch with our doctors if you feel vardenafil is not working.

What are the differences between vardenafil and Levitra?

Both vardenafil and Levitra work in the same way to treat erectile dysfunction and have the same active ingredient. The main difference is the packaging and pricing. Levitra is the original branded product, however different manufacturers have made generic products which contain the same active ingredient.

Why is vardenafil cheaper than Levitra?

Levitra is the brand name that was given to the medication by Bayer who originally manufactured it. When Bayer’s patent for Levitra ended, other drug companies could copy the medication and sell it under the generic name vardenafil for much cheaper. Vardenafil is the active ingredient found in Levitra, and the two medications are medically the same.
