Levitra was produced by Bayer HealthCare and received a licence to market from the European Commission in March 2003, some 5 years after Viagra first became available. It is an oral (tablet) anti erectile dysfunction treatment. The results of a two-year clinical study with over 3,750 men, released in June 2003, reported an improvement in 90% of those tested. That means that 9 out of 10 men who had been struggling to attain and maintain an erection noted an improvement in their condition. In many cases they could sustain their erection through to the successful completion of sexual activity including orgasm and ejaculation. This drug also has some advantages over its competitors in the ED treatment market.
The drug is very quick-acting. Indeed it allows some men to attain an erection in as early as 15 minutes after swallowing the pill. That is a very quick absorption into the bloodstream.Of course, like the other oral ED treatments, it required physical stimulation. That means, in layman’s terms, kissing, touching etc, usually in the genital area (penis and testicles). The window during which the drug will do the business for you is 5 hours, although again, some men have said it can last a few hours after that. However if you miss your window of opportunity through mistiming or whatever, you can’t take another pill for at least 24 hours.
Like other oral ED treatments some men report side effects such as headache, flushing of the face, and congestion behind the nose (nasal passages). These are usually mild and non-obtrusive, but if the symptoms persist or other more unpleasant side effects are experienced, stop taking the pill and consult your GP again. I say “again” because you have to have a prescription to order the drug online, or be given it over the counter at a local pharmacy. There’s a good reason for this. The drug is not suitable for men with certain medical conditions or who are already taking nitrates or nitrate-based medications. It is not suitable for those suffering from hypotension, angina, renal disease; and those with a recent history of stroke and known hereditary retinal (eye) degenerative disorders. This is not an exhaustive list, hence the need to consult a qualified clinician.
One of the advantages of Levitra over other drugs is that it works just as well if taken with food as when not. That open up the possibility of you going out for a meal with your partner, taking the pill with a glass of water as you leave to come home (or go to the hotel room) and then be ready for some action when you get home and have prepared the candles, oils, and pulled back those black satin bed-sheets!
