Overview

NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you. Pricing is provided as a reference only. The final decision on issuing this medication remains with our Prescriber / Pharmacist.

Vardenafil, the generic version of Levitra, is a drug used to help increase the flow of blood to the penis in men who have difficulty getting, or maintaining an erection, following sexual arousal.

Take one Vardenafil tablet 30-60 minutes prior to sexual activity. You should never consume more than one Vardenafil tablet within a 24 hour period. Taking this medication on an empty stomach, or a low-fat meal, increases the effectiveness of Vardenafil. Alcohol should be avoided when taking Vardenafil, as this can reduce the effectiveness. 


Do not combine Vardenafil with other erectile dysfunction medication.

Dosage

The recommended dose of Vardenafil is 10mg at least 30-60 minutes before sexual activity. The dose can be adjusted according to response, with a maximum dose of 20mg in a 24 hour period.

Patients taking medications for high blood pressure such as doxazosin should use a reduced dose of Vardenafil 5mg 30-60 minutes before sexual activity.
