Levitra (vardenafil) is an oral drug used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. Taking a pill of Levitra around 60 minutes before sexual intercourse helps the ED patient in attaining and maintaining erection when he is stimulated sexually. Levitra does not cause automatic erections and is not a replacement for sexual stimulation or a treatment for decreased libido. Levitra can be taken as often as once a day.
Levitra works by relaxing the smooth muscles of the penis and enabling more blood to flow into it; most erectile function problems are caused by various factors that limit blood flow to the penis.
