Levitra (vardenafil) is the medicationused to treat eractyle disfunction (or impotence). It works by inhibiting the enzyme known as phosphodiesterase type(DE5). DE5 is present in the lining ofthe blood vessels around corpus cavernosum of the penis. Because of the inhibition,corpus cavernosum gets more blood and that causes the erection.
This medicationwas introduced to the public shortly after the success of Viagra (sildenafil). Bothmedications work by the same mechanism, but Levitra works faster and theerection lasts longer than with Viagra. Most patients using Levitra experiencedimprovement in about half an hour, and the effect lasted for some 5 hours. Anotherdifference is that Levitra can be used by people suffering from many health conditions,including depression, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, spinal cord injury orremoved prostate.
Levitra canbe found in doses of 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg. These are much lower doses thanin Viagra (available doses are 25, 50 and 100mg) and because of that Levitra isconsidered to be safer and with less side effects than Viagra.
