Pharmacist Tip
Eat a balanced diet: regular consumption of fatty foods will cause weight gain and contribute to blocked arteries which reduces blood flow to the penis.
Reduce alcohol consumption: Alcohol depresses the central nervous system, making it harder to achieve an erection.

  • You should take one tablet at least 25 minutes before sex.
  • Levitra can take up to an hour to take effect in some men, although it can take effect in as little as 15 – 20 minutes in some men.
  • Levitra can produce an effect for up to 4 – 5 hours, although occasionally it can last longer.
  • You should never take more than tablet for erectile dysfunction (Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra) in a 24-hour period.
  • You should take Levitra on an empty stomach or after a light meal and try to limit your alcohol intake to ensure it remains effective.
Levitra does not always work for everyone the first time they use it. If this is the case you should not give up, guidance states that you should try Levitra at least 8 times. If you find Levitra effective and do not experience any serious side effects you can request a repeat order via your online account. If you followed the above guidance and still find Levitra ineffective you may wish to increase the strength, or alternatively try a different medicine such as Cialis or Viagra. 

If you do experience side effects from Levitra they may include headache, flushing, and nasal congestion. Levitra has a small risk of nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and skin rash as with all medicines. Please read the Patient Information Leaflet enclosed with your medicines for a full list of side effects.

If you experience any adverse effects from taking your prescribed medicine it is important to let us know immediately. Please log in to your online account and message one of our healthcare professionals or alternatively call us on 0333 2200 519. In a medical emergency you should contact the emergency services or go straight to your local Accident & Emergency.

Levitra tablets may not be suitable if any of the following apply:

  • You suffer from heart disease or heart rhythm problems
  • You have had a heart attack or stroke within the last six months
  • You have high or low blood pressure
  • You suffer from liver or kidney disease
  • You are a haemophiliac
  • You suffer from sickle cell anaemia or leukaemia
  • There is a physical deformity of the penis
  • You suffer from retinitis pigmentosa
  • You have a stomach ulcer.

If any of the above apply, it is important to let your prescriber know so they can judge whether Levitra tablets will be safe for you to use.

Levitra tablets can slightly lower the blood pressure. For most men this isn’t a concern. However, this effect on blood pressure can be exaggerated if Levitra is taken with a nitrate drug, such as Isosorbide or Glyceryl Trinitrate (GTN). If taking nitrate drugs then Levitra tablets should not be used. Levitra tablets should be used in caution if combined with alpha blockers due to the potential hypotensive effects.   


Levitra tablets are manufactured by Bayer. The tablets are orange in colour and round in shape. Levitra is a film-coated with “BAYER” cross marked on one side and “10” marked on the other. Levitra 10mg tablets come in blisters of 4 tablets. There is a marking of 5 on the 5mg tablets and the 20 on the 20mg tablets respectively. 

In addition to the active ingredient, Vardenafil, Levitra tablets also contains microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, crospovidone, colloidal silicon dioxide, polyethylene glycol, titanium dioxide and yellow & red ferric oxide.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does Levitra work?

    Levitra is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor. Like all oral erectile dysfunction treatments, Levitra is only effective during sexual stimulation. The medication does not increase sexual desire or cause sexual arousal. To fully understand how Levitra tablets work, you should understand the mechanics of an erection. When a man is sexually stimulated, the erectile tissue of the penis releases nitric oxide. This stimulates cGMP, an enzyme that relaxes the smooth muscle cells of the penis. This muscle relaxation has two effects:

    • The arteries in the penis dilate, increasing blood flow.
    • The erectile tissue fills with blood.

    Levitra tablets work by maintaining the levels of cGMP in the smooth muscle cells. If a man isn’t sexually stimulated, however, then nitric oxide isn’t released and no cGMP will be produced, resulting in no erection. Please note that Levitra isn’t always successful with the first dose. We recommend using Levitra at least eight times before switching to a different medicine.

  • How long will it take for Levitra to have an effect?

    Levitra 5mg tablets should begin to work within 15 minutes of taking the tablet. With the necessary sexual arousal, its effects can last for up to 10 hours. Because Levitra can vary in the time it takes to work, you should start sexual activity at different times after taking the tablet. This will help determine the optimal time for sexual activity.

  • Choosing the Correct Levitra Dosage

    When starting treatment with Levitra, the typical dosage is Levitra 10mg. If 10mg is successful for you but you experience side effects, try a 5mg dose. If 10mg is not effective and side effects are not problematic then increase your dosage to 20mg after consultation with a doctor.

    Do not exceed 20mg of Levitra in a day as this will not gresult in a greater effect but will increase the risk of side effects. Levitra oro-dispersible 10mg tablets are a convenient way to take the treatment without liquid, or for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets. Oro-dispersible tablets should be taken 25 to 60 minutes prior to sexual activity and the effects should last four to five hours. To take them, place a tablet in the centre of the tongue, allow it to dissolve, then swallow it. Take the oro-dispersible without liquid and immediately after you’ve removed it from the blister. It can be taken with or without food. The maximum dose of the oro-dispersible tablets is one 10mg tablet once per day.

    If you have not had an erection for some time, we recommend trying the treatment a few times before having sex. Try masturbating hour after taking a tablet to become accustomed to erections again. Levitra may take as many as eight trials to be effective, so continue with the treatment before you decide that it is ineffective for you.

    If Levitra does not work as well as you had hoped, but you did not experience side effects, try increasing your dose to 20mg, or try an alternative treatment.

    Men over 65 years or who are in generally poor health may be advised to start at the lower dose of one 5mg tablet. The maximum dose is one 20mg per 24 hours.

  • Do I need to take Levitra with food?

    You can take Levitra tablets with or without food. Consuming excessive amounts of alcohol prior to taking Levitra is not recommended. Large quantities of alcohol can make it difficult to achieve an erection but small to moderate alcohol consumption is unlikely to interfere.

  • What are the key benefits of Levitra?

    In clinical studies, Levitra has been proven effective for a wide range of age groups (18 - 89 years) and in men with other conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, high cholesterol and depression. Levitra was proven to increase erection maintenance and successful penetration.

  • Is Levitra right for me?

    You should only take Levitra if it has been prescribed by a registered doctor. Men with severe cardiac disease, unstable angina or angina occurring during sexual activity, low blood pressure or have had a recent heart attack or stroke should not take Levitra.

    Treatments for erectile dysfunction may not be effective for men with deformity of the penis such an angulation and bent penis. Levitra can also be dangerous when combined with other medicines such as alpha blockers, ketoconazole and itraconazole. You should also avoid HIV medications such as ritonavir and indinavir while taking Levitra. Some antibiotics can also affect this medication.

  • What side effects can I expect with Levitra?

    If you follow the recommended dosage, Levitra’s side effects are mild and include a headache and facial flushing. These symptoms pass with time.

    In rare cases, erectile dysfunction medication can produce prolonged and painful erections called priapism. If left untreated this can permanently damage the penis. Get immediate medical help if you have an erection that lasts more than 4 hours.

  • What other erectile treatments are there?

    Levitra or vardenafil, is similar to sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis) and avanafil (Spedra). Levitra has a slight molecular difference to Viagra/sildenafil, giving it a longer effect.

    The Independent Pharmacy also supplies Vitaros cream, a non-tablet treatment for ED.

  • Why choose Levitra?

    Levitra can remain effective for 12 hours or longer. While erections will not be continuous during this period, they are likely to be improved with arousal during those 12 hours.

  • Does Levitra work every time?

    PDE5 inhibitors are usually steady and predictable. Generally, if Levitra has worked before, it’s going to work every time.

    If your erectile dysfunction is psychological, you may require specialist treatment.

    Erectile dysfunction can also indicate serious health conditions such as atherosclerosis and heart disease. You should consult your doctor about any erectile performance trouble.

  • Who should not take Levitra?

    Levitra should be avoided by men with a history of angina, recent stroke or heart attack, high or low blood pressure and a range of less common medical conditions. There is no age limit for the use of Levitra.

    Some medications interact with Levitra, particularly nitrates. Levitra in combination with nitrates can result in low blood pressure.

  • What is the difference between Levitra and Viagra?

    Levitra and Viagra are both PDE5 inhibitors, medications that change the blood flow to support better erections. Levitra remains active for about 12 hours while Viagra is active for about 4 hours. They have similar side effects and contraindications.

  • Is Cialis stronger than Levitra?

    No, Cialis works in the same way as Levitra, but its effects last for up to 36 hours. Levitra is most effective when sexual activity occurs within 12 hours of taking a tablet. Erections will only occur with arousal.

  • Is there a cheap, generic version of Levitra?

    Levitra is under patent by Bayer until October 2018. Until then only Bayer can produce Levitra. Suppliers of generic Levitra are acting illegally and selling fake medication which may be ineffective and dangerous. You should only obtain Levitra from registered pharmacies.

  • Why does the cost of Levitra vary so much?

    The wholesale price is set by the manufacturing drug company, Bayer, so pharmacies usually pay the same price for Levitra. Pharmacies then set their own prices for drugs depending on their business model. The Independent Pharmacy keeps prices lower and benefits from high levels of repeat ordering.

  • Can I take Levitra with other ED tablets?

    No, taking a combination of other ED tablets will not produce stronger erections and will increase your risk for side effects. Allow 24 hours between taking Levitra and a different ED medicine. Wait for 48 hours after taking Cialis.

  • How long does Levitra work and how frequently can I take it?

    Levitra remains active for 12 hours. Wait 24 hours before taking another tablet.

  • Can I drink alcohol with Levitra?

    You can drink 1 to 2 units of alcohol with Levitra. Keep in mind that Alcohol is a depressant and reduces the strength of erections. This can counteract the effect of medications taken to treat ED. Additionally, any more than small amounts of alcohol may increase some of Levitra’s side effects, especially low blood pressure.

  • Can I take Levitra with other prescription medicines?

    You can take Levitra with most prescription medicines. However there are a number of prescription medicines which interact with Levitra, most notable are nitrates used to treat heart disease and angina. During online consultations, we will check for medications that interact. You can read the full list of medications that interact with Levira in the patient information leaflet supplied with the tablets.

  • Will Levitra cause unwanted erections?

    No, Levitra and the other common ED medications support natural erections. After taking the tablet, sexual arousal and stimulation need to be present before an erection will occur. Without this stimulation Levitra remains inactive.

  • Can I break Levitra tablets into smaller pieces and take split tablets?

    No, Levitra tablets are film-coated and should not be split. Breaking the film coat will reduce their effectiveness.

  • Do I need a prescription for Levitra or can I buy it without?

    Levitra is available by prescription only. Doctors or specialist pharmacists can prescribe it and it must be dispensed by a registered pharmacy. Online clinics supply Levitra through electronic prescriptions.

  • Can I get Levitra on the NHS?

    GPs and NHS specialists can prescribe limited amounts and on a strict eligibility basis on the NHS. NHS prescription fees apply.

  • Is Levitra cheaper online or through a private doctor?

    Most private doctors charge at least £25.00 for a prescription. NHS doctors also charge for writing private prescriptions. In general, online services are cheaper but costs can vary and it is worth some research. Be sure to use only fully regulated websites.

  • What should I do if Levitra does not work or stops working?

    Levitra is usually an effective treatment and works consistently each time. The same dose should work over a period of years. The body does not build a tolerance to Levitra and they should not become less effective. However, in the situation where the tablet is not taken properly, the results may be disappointing. In this case, it is best to try the same dose again. Only increase your dose if the previous dose has not worked on several occasions. If you response to Levitra continues to be poor, consult your doctor. There may have been a progression in the underlying cause of the ED or some other new factor may need to be examined.

  • What is Levitra Oro-Dispersible?

    Oro-dispersible tablets dissolve on your tongue and are rapidly absorbed for faster effect.

    Place an oro-dispersible tablet on the tongue, allow it to dissolve, then swallow. The oro-dispersible tablets must be taken without liquid and immediately upon release from the blister.

  • What is Levitra?

    Levitra is a treatment for erectile dysfunction and contains Vardenafil, a PDE-5 inhibitor like Viagra. An erection requires a good supply of blood and relaxed blood vessel walls. A chemical known as cyclic GMP (cGMP) acts to relax blood vessel walls and occurs naturally in the body. Its production is controlled by nitric oxide which is counterbalanced by phosphodiesterase (PDE) enzymes. A PDE inhibitor temporarily prevents PDE doing its job and therefore cGMP levels rises, allowing blood vessels to relax and remain open.

  • What are the myths about Levitra?

    Levitra will not increase a man’s sex drive but will help him achieve an erection when he is sexually stimulated. Levitra is not a contraceptive and does not protect partners from STI’s (sexually transmitted infections). For these reasons, it is important to use birth control and/or a condom.

  • Should I take more Levitra if I’m dissatisfied with the results?

    Do not take more than the recommended dose of Levitra. Also, do not take an alternative treatment such as Viagra or Cialis within 24 hours of taking Levitra. The best solution is to consult your doctor if you are dissatisfied with your treatment. He or she may be able to increase the dosage or suggest an alternative treatment.

  • What is the difference between Levitra and Cialis?

    Levitra and Cialis both relax the blood vessels and increase blood flow to the penis. These, alongside sexual stimulation, help to produce a strong erection.

    The main difference between Levitra and Cialis is that Cialis lasts longer (up to 36 hours). Many men prefer Cialis for this reason because it requires less planning.

    However Cialis’ side effects last longer. Men who have trouble tolerating the side effects of their erectile dysfunction medication will have difficulty with Cialis.

  • Can I take Levitra if I have diabetes?

    Yes. Levitra has been proven effective for people who have diabetes. Consult your doctor for more information and be sure to disclose your full medical history prior to receiving a prescription for erectile dysfunction.

  • Who can take Levitra? 

    Levitra can be taken by men over 18. However, you should consult a doctor about your ED and attempt to examine the causes of your disorder. For older men, these tend to be physical; for younger men they are often psychological. Other medications and your overall health may affect whether you can take Levitra safely; consult your doctor and the list of warnings below.

  • What should my Levitra pills look like?

    Levitra pills are round and orange printed with “BAYER” on one side and the dosage other.

  • How safe is Levitra?

    Like all prescription medication, Levitra has been subjected to rigorous testing and clinical trials by medical agencies before being granted a license.

    Levitra is safe, provided a qualified doctor has approved its use and prescribed it after taking into consideration the symptoms of your condition, other medications you take, and underlying health issues.

    Only buy Levitra from a registered pharmacy which requires a prescription to process your order.

  • I’ve not heard of Levitra. Why should I take it instead of Viagra?

    While they have different active ingredients, Levitra and Viagra work in a similar way. Viagra may work better for some people, while Levitra will be more appropriate for others. Your doctor will be able help you decide which is the best treatment for you.

    Levitra can become effective more quickly and is thought to last slightly longer than Viagra; it is also more suitable for men with some underlying medical conditions.

    A key advantage for those who buy Levitra is that it is available in an oro-dispersible form, which means it can be placed on the tongue and dissolved. In this way, patients can take it more discreetly.

  • Can women take Levitra?

    No. Levitra is not suitable for use by women under any circumstance.

  • Can I buy Levitra online?

    Yes. You can buy Levitra through online pharmacies, without seeing a doctor beforehand. The pharmacy will provide a remote consultation service with a doctor who will assesses your condition through a medical questionnaire.

    Legitimate pharmacies must also display contact details, such as a phone number and an address. If the site does not have this information, treat it with suspicion.

  • Will a higher dose give me a better result?

    Not necessarily.
