What Is Vardenafil?
Vardenafil is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. It comes in tablet form and is also available under the brand name Levitra in the UK. It falls under a group of drugs known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors.
Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that makes it difficult for a man to get and maintain an erection. This is because there is an insignificant amount of blood flow to the penis needed to get erect. It is most common in men between the ages of 40 and 70; in fact, 50% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 will have suffered from erectile dysfunction to some degree. There are many causes of erectile dysfunction that stem from both physical and mental problems. Luckily, there is a range of treatments available to counteract these problems.
What Is Vardenafil Used For?
Vardenafil tablets are used to treat erectile dysfunction, which is a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection. Combined with sexual stimulation, vardenafil increases blood flow to your penis by widening the blood vessels, helping you to get and maintain an erection.
It should be noted that simply taking a vardenafil tablet is not sufficient to produce an erection. Vardenafil is not an aphrodisiac, and in order to release nitric oxide from the penile nerves, sexual stimulation is required. Vardenafil amplifies the signal between the penis and the brain, which helps people have an erection.
Vardenafil and Alcohol
While there is no evidence of adverse health effects when using vardenafil and alcohol together, drinking alcohol can make it harder to get an erection. For this reason, it is not recommended that you take vardenafil and drink alcohol.
Combining vardenafil tablets and alcohol may also make you more likely to experience side effects such as:
- Heart palpitations
Vardenafil vs Viagra
Viagra is the brand name for sildenafil. Vardenafil and Viagra are both treatments for erectile dysfunction and medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These medications work by blocking the PDE5 enzyme in the blood vessels, helping them to relax and increasing blood flow. Vardenafil and Viagra both boost nitric oxide, a natural chemical that helps the penis muscle relax. This relaxation and improved blood flow make it easier to get and maintain an erection when aroused.
The time each medication takes to work differs slightly. While vardenafil can take up to an hour to be effective, Viagra can take 30 to 60 minutes to work. The effects of both vardenafil and Viagra last for around 4 hours. Compared to Viagra, vardenafil has less common side effects, not normally being associated with muscle aches or rash (although there is a small risk of them).
Vardenafil vs Sildenafil
Sildenafil is the generic name for Viagra, the branded erectile dysfunction treatment. Viagra and sildenafil are identical and both contain the same active ingredient; sildenafil citrate. Like vardenafil, sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor. This type of medication blocks the PDE5 enzyme, helping the blood vessels to relax and improving blood flow. Both sildenafil and vardenafil boost nitric oxide, which is a naturally produced chemical that helps the muscles in the penis relax. A combination of the improved blood flow and this relaxation makes getting and maintaining an erection easier when you are aroused.
The time it takes vardenafil and sildenafil to work can vary. Vardenafil takes up to an hour to work, while sildenafil can be effective in 30 to 60 minutes. The effects of both treatments last for about 4 hours. There are fewer common side effects associated with vardenafil compared to sildenafil. Vardenafil is not commonly associated with rash or muscle aches (although there is a small chance they could occur).
Many users have commented online that vardenafil helps them get an erection within one hour. Reviewers, including men over the age of 60, have expressed their satisfaction that the treatment helps them get an erection and maintain it long enough to have sex, and then have intercourse for a second time hours later. Some users experienced no side effects.
Among the most regularly reported side effects are flushing, stuffy nose and headache. Not all men said that they require a 20 mg dose of vardenafil to get and maintain an erection, with some commenting that only 5 mg or 10 mg was required. Users have reported that they even found it easier to get an erection the day after using vardenafil.

The normal initial dose for erectile dysfunction is 10 mg taken around an hour before sexual activity. If you think a 10 mg dose is too weak or not strong enough, you should speak to your pharmacist or doctor. This dose can be increased to 20 mg or reduced to 5 mg, according to tolerability and effectiveness for each individual.
Vardenafil tablets shouldn’t be taken more than once a day. You should note that sexual stimulation is required for the treatment to be effective.
How to Use Vardenafil
Vardenafil tablets are taken with water, with or without food. If you have had a meal before you take vardenafil, the treatment could take longer to be effective. A heavy or fatty meal is likely to delay the effect of the medication. You shouldn’t drink grapefruit juice when using vardenafil, as this can boost the blood levels of the drug and trigger side effects such as headache and flushing.
If vardenafil tablets are not working satisfactorily, you should speak to your pharmacist or doctor, who can advise you on another erectile dysfunction treatment that may be more effective. Don’t take vardenafil more than once per day, or combine it with other erectile dysfunction treatments, nitrate medications, or poppers (amyl nitrate).

- You are taking medication for arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat)

How Long Does Vardenafil Last?
