Levitra is a form of medication that is used to treat impotence or erectile dysfunction in men. It is classified as one of the more potent of these drugs.
Levitra Soft tablets are a more fast acting form of the Levitra pills. They are made to be chewed, unlike the traditional hard pills.
This allows for direct assimilation of the drug vardenafil into the bloodstream. This means that there is a faster observation of results.
Levitra Soft tabs make use of vardenafil as the main ingredient. This is a muscle relaxant that allows for increased blood flow to penile tissue.
This in turn helps the man to achieve and maintain a working erection. Note that Levitra Soft and all other impotency medication is made to HELP.
You won’t get an erection just because you take the tablet. You still need to have some sexual stimulation in order to do this.
The Levitra Soft tabs are made chewable. This means that absorption rates into the blood stream are increased because of the greater surface area.
This pill can be taken sooner before sexual activity begins than the traditional Levitra tabs. It requires approximately 20 minutes to have an effect.
Food items that have a high concentration of fat have no effect on the potency of a Levitra Soft tab, allowing it to be taken with meals.
Vardenafil in the Levitra Soft tabs is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor. It blocks the PDE-5 enzyme, which is responsible for restricting the relaxation of penile muscles.
This enzyme being blocked means that the smooth muscles are allowed to relax. This increases the flow of blood into the penis and helps bring an erection faster.
You can take Levitra Soft tabs on an as-needed basis. The pills must be taken orally, approximately 20 minutes before any sexual activity begins.
You can choose to swallow, chew or dissolve the tablet. Chewing and dissolving under the tongue will greatly increase the absorption rate.
Never take more than one dose of Levitra Soft in 24 hours. If your doctor prescribes a different dosage, make sure you stick to that instead.
Levitra Soft is usually available in 5, 10 and 20mg doses. The recommended initial dose is 10mg tablets taken about 15 – 20 minutes before sexual activity begins.
This dosage can be increased or reduced by your doctor based on your tolerance to the medication and the severity of your problem.
If you have a history of hepatic and renal diseases, or if you are taking contraindicative medication, or if you are over the age of 65, the standard starter dose is 2.5mg.
Do not take alcoholic beverages with Levitra Soft tabs. It is likely to increase your risk of getting some serious side effects.
Missed doses and overdose
Since Levitra Soft is taken when necessary before sexual activity of any kind begins, it is highly unlikely that a dose will be missed.
Never take more than one Levitra Soft tab a day. If you overdose, contact your local poison hotline and emergency medical services immediately.
