What is Levitra?
Levitra, also known as vardenafil, is an FDA-approved medication used to treat erection problems in men. It works by increasing blood flow and relaxing the muscles in the penis, which allows men to get and maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse.
Like Viagra, Levitra is a PDE5 inhibitor. When a man becomes sexually aroused, it produces nitric oxide and an enzyme called cGMP. This chemical reaction makes the blood vessels in the penis dilate, resulting in an erection. The enzyme PDE5 makes the blood vessels return to normal size. Levitra works by inhibiting PDE5, which makes it easier for men to get and maintain an erection.
Levitra has been shown to be effective in men with erectile dysfunction. It does not cure erectile dysfunction, increase sexual desire, prevent pregnancy, or protect you from sexually transmitted diseases. Levitra is not suitable for women and children. Only take Levitra as directed by a US licensed physician.
