About Levitra (vardenafil)

Levitra is a selective inhibitor of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). In combination with sexual stimulation, Levitra helps increase blood flow to the penis so men can get and maintain erections.

Levitra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence). Levitra is available only by prescription. It's available in a generic formulation as well as under different brand names, including vardenafil.

Levitra may be prescribed as a tablet. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Levitra, be sure to complete the full course of PDE5 inhibitors unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, Levitra may not fully treat erectile dysfunction (ED).

Levitra uses

There is one FDA-approved use for Levitra, but your healthcare provider may also prescribe it off-label to treat other medical conditions.

Your doctor may prescribe Levitra for any of the following reasons, or other reasons not listed here. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)

    Levitra is FDA-approved to treat erectile dysfunction. It relaxes the muscles found in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to the penis.

How to take Levitra

What to avoid while taking Levitra

Levitra has 448 drug interactions. Don’t change what you are taking without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. That includes other medications, supplements, and nonprescription drugs.

Possible drug interactions with Levitra include:

  • Antibiotics and antifungal prescription drugs

  • Prescription drugs used to treat high blood pressure or prostate disorder
