Vardenafil Sex Steroid Hormone Powder for Erectile Dysfunction Treatment CAS 224785-91-5 Levitra
Levitra Dosages and cycles:
Levitra (the actual name brand) is found in a round orange tablet form with the word Bayer appearing twice on one side, once vertically and once horizontally and the dosing strength listed on the other side. The ED medication is available in 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg and 20mg forms. The drug may be taken with or without food and is to be taken 1-2 hours prior to sexual activity.
Availability of Levitra:
Levitra is widely available through most pharmacies around the globe both retail and online. Many compounding pharmacies also make their own generic versions of Vardenafil. As with Viagra and Cialis, Levitra has also found its way into the market of research chemical labs, online suppliers of oral liquid medications that are not controlled substances. Levitra normally cost $10-$15 per 10mg tab retail but will be cheaper if purchased in generic form.
Levitra is a popular erectile dysfunction (ED) medication of the phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor (PED5) class of medications. Bayer, GlaxoSmithKline and Schering-Plough developed the ED drug, but as of 2005 Bayer has retained full rights. Levitra is very similar to the popular ED drugs Viagra and Cialis but much closer to Viagra than the latter.
Levitra Functions and Traits:
As a PED5 Inhibitor, Vardenafil functions by relaxing the muscles and forcing more blood into the penis in order for an erection to be obtained or maintained. ED can be defined by the inability to obtain or maintain an erection or in some cases the inability to obtain or maintain a full and ridged erection.
The ED drug Levitra, like all similar PED5’s, functions by binding nitric oxide to the guanylate cyclase receptors thereby increasing cGMP levels. This creates a smooth relaxation of the muscle and creates a pathway for increased blood flow.
While Levitra is very similar to Viagra and Cialis it is more closely related to Viagra with the only difference being the position of a nitrogen atom and the addition of an ethyl group rather than methyl group. The slight alteration gives Levitra a slightly longer active life than Viagra but still much shorter than Cialis.
Effects of Levitra:
The effects of Levitra are very straightforward, remedying erectile dysfunction in men who have a blood flow issue. Levitra will not remedy a libido issue. If libido is the issue the individual may need to have his hormone levels checked. If the issue is blood flow and not hormone related, sexual stimulation is still required for the medication to work but assuming stimulation is provided the blood flow issue should be remedied in most cases. Some data has also suggested that Vardenafil may also aid in preventing premature ejaculation. Some data has also suggested that penis rigidity is greater with Levitra than Viagra; however, data shows that this tends to be more individualistic than anything else.
What is Levitra?
Levitra (vardenafil) relaxes muscles found in the walls of blood vessels and increases blood flow to particular areas of the body.
Levitra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence).
Levitra may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Taking Levitra with certain other medicines can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure. Do not take vardenafil if you also take riociguat (Adempas) or a nitrate drug such as nitroglycerin.
Stop using Levitra and get emergency medical help if you have sudden vision loss.
Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if your erection is painful or lasts longer than 4 hours. A prolonged erection (priapism) can damage the penis.
During sexual activity, if you become dizzy or nauseated, or have pain, numbness, or tingling in your chest, arms, neck, or jaw, stop and call your doctor right away. You could be having a serious side effect
Before taking this medicine
You should not use Levitra if you are allergic to vardenafil.
Taking Levitra with certain other medicines can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure. Do not take vardenafil if you also take riociguat (Adempas), or if you take a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. Nitrates include nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, and isosorbide mononitrate. Nitrates are also found in some recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite (“poppers”).
To make sure Levitra is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:
heart disease, heart rhythm problems;
a recent history (in the past 6 months) of a heart attack, stroke, or congestive heart failure;
a personal or family history of Long QT syndrome;
high or low blood pressure;
liver disease, kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis);
a blood cell disorder such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia;
a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia;
a stomach ulcer;
hearing or vision problems, history of vision loss;
an eye disorder such as retinitis pigmentosa (an inherited condition of the eye);
a physical deformity of the penis (such as Peyronie’s disease); or
if you have been told you should not have sexual intercourse for health reasons.
Levitra can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss. This has occurred in a small number of people taking Viagra or other drugs similar to vardenafil. Most of these people also had certain pre-existing eye problems or risk factors for blood vessel disorders (such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, smoking, or being over 50 years old). It is not clear whether vardenafil is the actual cause of vision loss.
Although Levitra is not for use in women, this medication is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby.
Although Levitra is not for use in women, it is not known whether this medicine passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby.
