Erectile dysfunction is a common problem that affects around one in every ten men. The problem can get worse with age, but thankfully, there is help available. Since the launch of Viagra in 1998, men experiencing impotence have had fresh hope. Vardenafil works by targeting a specific enzyme in the body called phosphodiesterase type 5 that can inhibit your ability to gain and maintain an erection. It’s highly successful, taking around an hour to work and potent for up to five hours.
Vardenafil is also known as its brand name Levitra. One of the key benefits of Vardenafil over Viagra is the duration of its effects, with Vardenafil lasting for up to five hours while other ED treatments like Viagra may only last between two to four hours. If you need them, longer-lasting pills like Cialis (often called the ‘weekend pill’) are available that can work for up to 36 hours.
Vardenafil is one of the most popular treatments for erectile dysfunction, alongside Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. You can find a huge range of branded and generic treatments for erectile dysfunction at The Independent Pharmacy.
How Vardenafil treats erectile dysfunction
When you get an erection, blood accumulates in the penis, making it grow and harden. Vardenafil works by getting more blood to flow to the penis and remain there. Vardenafil is a type of medicine called a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor.
When you are aroused, your body sends chemical messengers around the body. One of these is called cyclic GMP, which relaxes and widens the blood vessels in the penis. Cyclic GMP is broken down by an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5.
Vardenafil work works by inhibiting this enzyme, allowing more blood to flow and remain in the penis. This means that when you become aroused you’re able to gain and maintain an erection. Over time, as the effects of Vardenafil wear off, your erection will too.
How to use Vardenafil
Vardenafil is taken as a tablet and should be taken with water. It can take up to an hour to work effectively, but this time can be affected by the food you’ve eaten (including fatty meals). You should be able to get an erection for up to five hours after taking the pill.
If the pill isn’t working as well as it should - don’t take a second pill, speak to us. We may be able to recommend a more suitable and effective ED treatment. You should only take Vadenafil a maximum of once every 24 hours and not in combination with any other treatments for erectile dysfunction.
Vardenafil should not be taken alongside any nitrate medications used to treat angina and heart failure including glyceryl trinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate. It should also not be taken alongside nicorandil or amyl nitrate (commonly called ‘poppers’).
You should avoid Vardenafil if you’re taking drugs for high blood pressure, an enlarged prostate gland or abnormal heart rhythms as it can cause your blood pressure to drop.
Is Vardenafil right for me?
Vardenafil has been shown in studies to produce similar effects to sildenafil, although the effects can last slights longer (5 - 6 hours as opposed to 4 hours). Vardenafil was also shown to be as well-tolerated as sildenafil with most men experiencing no notable side effects.
Vardenafil has been shown to be particularly effective in men who suffer from diabetes and men over 65 years of age.
