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.
