Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a widespread condition among men, affecting 15 to 30 million people in the USA alone. If you are among those who suffer from ED, you are not alone. Levitra is a well-known medication that can help with this condition. It is important to understand the root cause of ED in order to effectively treat it.
What can be the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction?
There can be many reasons that can cause ED, including health disorders, mental disorders, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, obesity, testosterone levels falling or other hormone differences, kidney infection, aging, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, prescription medicines, sleep conditions, drug misuse, excessive consumption of alcohol, tobacco use, untreatable health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis (MS), pelvic injury or surgery, Peyronie’s disease (which causes scar tissue to form in the penis).
How does Levitra work?
Levitra belongs to the family of medicine known as PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase-5) inhibitors. This type of medication works by increasing the levels and activity of nitric oxide when combined with sexual stimulation. This leads to increased blood flow to the penile tube and producing an erection. Levitra’s generic name is Vardenafil and it is available as a brand version from Bayer. However, many manufacturers sell their own versions since it went generic.
The standard dosage may vary depending on age, size, or health condition; however, the general dosage of Levitra is 10 mg taken once a day. No matter the dosage strength, it should not exceed one dose per day. It should be taken 1 hour before sexual activity. Levitra only works if the user is already aroused or has a stimulant erection.
Cautions with Levitra:
- Alcohol should not be mixed with Levitra in order to reduce the chance of an erection and low sexual energy.
- Using two ED medications can cause severe side effects and increase the risk of fatal health problems.
- If you experience an erection for an extended period of time or any pain at all, seek immediate medical attention.
