Main information about Levitra
Levitra provides a required effect to have a complete erection and sexual intercourse. Levitra has an active ingredient Vardenafil which gives a mild action to the body and perfectly works for senior men.
The mechanism of erection is conditioned by the biochemical processes which appear as a result of the sexual arousal. Levitra enhances these processes, causes heavy blood circulation in the penis and keeps a high blood pressure in the penis arteries. By means of the nutrition of the penis tissues with the blood, a prolonged and firm erection appears to have a sexual intercourse.
Unlike Viagra and Cialis, Levitra acts softer. As the action of the drug begins in just 15 minutes after the use of the pill, the active ingredients do not bring an additional load to the cardiovascular system. The blood circulation is gradually increased in the pelvic area, and therefore a man does not experience a rapid heart-beat or sudden change of the blood pressure during the use of Levitra.
Levitra may be used by men over 65 years old. A dose and the scheme of the treatment of the erectile dysfunction will differ but senior men will not have side effects during the correct administration of the drug.
Use and dose of Levitra
The pills of Levitra should be used before sexual intercourse. Even if you ate fatty food recently, it will not influence on the speed of the uptake of Vardenafil from the gastro-intestinal tract. It is better to take the medicine 15-20 minutes before the sexual intercourse, so that the pill will be completely dissolved in the stomach.
A one-time therapeutic dose of Levitra is 10 mg for men at the age of 18 to 65. A one-time dose acts within 6 hours.
Senior men over 65 years old are recommended to take Levitra 5 mg or 2,5 mg depending on the functioning of the cardiovascular system, kidneys and liver.
The maximal daily dose of Levitra 10 mg may be used not more than once in 24 hours. Even if you take 2 or more pills of Levitra 10 mg, you will not have a stronger or/and longer erection. The side effects grow during the overdose, and this will have a negative influence on the quality of the intimacy.
